Who cares? We are all terrorists to somebody. I fail to see where your confusion comes from. Al Qaeda has been serving the US diligently. Why wouldn't we reward them with lucrative Libya?
Okay, just being sarcastic. Seriously tired of all of this US vs. THEM that I see nowadays.

Well Gadaffi must have been doing some good because anytime a news guy stopped a 'rebel' they spoke very good english. So I assume they all had some kind of education.

It was here at the courthouse in Benghazi where the first spark of the Libyan revolution ignited. It’s the symbolic seat of the revolution; post-Gaddafi Libya’s equivalent of Egypt’s Tahrir Square. And it was here, in the tumultuous months of civil war, that the ragtag rebel forces established their provisional government and primitive, yet effective, media center from which to tell foreign journalists about their “fight for freedom.”
But according to multiple eyewitnesses—myself included—one can now see both the Libyan rebel flag and the flag of al Qaeda fluttering atop Benghazi’s courthouse.
As well it should. After all, Al-Qaeda was there all along fighting right beside NATO/AMERICA-backed rebels. How much more of our tax dollars did Hillary say she will be now be sending Libya?
If there were questions about al-Qaida’s role in post-Gadhafi Libya, VICE reporter Sherif Elhelwa provides some answers in a new story with eyewitness descriptions.
Al-Qaida flags, Elhelwa reports, are popping up around Benghazi. At the city courthouse, which played a prominent role in the Libyan revolution, residents are flying the late terrorist’s Osama bin Laden’s colors.
This has led to what is making “leading from behind” suddenly seem like a sticky strategy. Fundamental changes have occurred since Gaddafi’s death eight days ago. Sharīʿah law is now in place, which means discrimination against women, Islamic banking law, which prohibits banks from earning interest, and a host of other measures large and small.
“Any law that violates sharia is null and void legally,” said interim leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil on Sunday. He then cited an example of restrictions on polygamy, which, for his evil, Gaddafi’s regime is responsible for passing.
If this is the course the Libyan populace chooses, then more power to them. Our lead from behind approach translates to letting Libya decide this matter for itself, but don’t think the Obama administration isn’t anxious about this and other, more startling, developments.
A disturbing new report from Libya holds that Al-Qaeda’s flag is now flying next to the Libyan one at the courthouse in Benghazi where the revolution began. (There are multiple pictures that support this claim.) The flag’s message, “There is no God but Allah,” is definitively not copacetic with the American government.
There is no indication that Libya is okay with this flag, just that it was there and that the guard in front of the building was sympathetic to its message and placement.
Vice's man in Libya noticed that a flag flying above the courthouse in Bengahzi, the cradle of the now victorious Libyan revolution, belongs to Al Qaida.
That doesn't mean the Islamists have won or anything—Al Qaida flags actually pop up a lot in that part of the world. But it's not encouraging! When reporter Sherif Elhelwa started taking photographs, a courthouse guard approached him and said, "Whomever speaks ill of this flag, we will cut off his tongue. I recommend that you don't publish these. You will bring trouble to yourself."
