Rebels have kidnapped Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zidan and taken him to an undisclosed location, his spokeswoman told CNN early Thursday. Armed rebels escorted the prime minister from the Corinthian Hotel in Tripoli into a convoy of waiting cars, said a hotel clerk who was not authorized to speak to the media. The witness reported no gunfire during the incident, and said the gunmen was respectful and "caused no trouble."

Democracy just aint working too well for these people, but seriously, PM kidnapped? WOW!
Nice security for your vip (not!)

food for thought:

Last weekend, the U.S. military captured a top al Qaeda suspect in Tripoli in a raid that angered Islamist militant groups, including one blamed for the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate, in Benghazi.

Greetings,

Political kidnappings (such as this) and assassinations have one common denominator.
They don't just "happen"...they are ALLOWED to happen.
Keep this in mind.

Zidan's office initially called the abduction a "rumor" on its official Facebook page. Then it posted a note that said it was "coerced by kidnappers to deny the report."


Sooooo.......did it happen?

If I tell you a lie then I tell you I wasn't lying about the lie will you believe the "truth" ?

Good Job; US, Canada, Britain, France...

I don't know it it is against the T&C of this site to post the video of how he went out. It choked me up pretty good.

On Tuesday Mr Zeidan called on the West to help stop militancy in Libya. In an interview with the BBC he said it was being used as a weapons base. The prime minister told the Newsnight programme that his country was being used to export weapons throughout the region.

Please don't.
If anyone needs to see it, they can just do an internet search for it.

I agree, so now we have to wonder where they're going with this. Sounds like he was getting a bit loose lipped about Libya being a weapons transfer station - maybe he threatened to reveal some truth about Benghazi?

A friendly chat and a quick release? A coup?
The circumstances were unclear but one guard described it as an "arrest".
So far is seems like a "quiet" kidnapping..
no shots fired, no protection given..
Maybe it's just one of those dumb TV prank show type of things : P
We shall see what we shall see..

"The head of the transitional government, Ali Zeidan, was taken to an unknown destination for unknown reasons by a group" of men believed to be former rebels, the government said in a brief statement on its website.


"former rebels"? Hmmmm.......

I concur.


This a good VIDEO to describe the type of inspiring leadership and stability inside Libya. This thread describes perfectly how far in the opposite direction Libya has gone since the coalition. If people had tried to kidnap Gaddafi, the perps would not have made it 5 blocks before one of his loyal countrymen swopped in.

What replaced him was absolutely worse, that's for sure. It turns out to learn, he didn't run things half bad for benefits to his people. He was a bit kooky, but he seemed to bring a lot of good for the trade off. Not at all bad for the region of the world, especially.

How he died was a war crime. I don't know how else to put it. The complicity of any of the Western Government officials after the fact and not pursuing those who did it, ought to make them partially guilty, IMO. Agreed there. We need to have some standards. Some basic human standards for who we support and arm to win wars.

Libyan prime minister freed after kidnapping, says 'there are many things that need dealing with'



Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zidan has been freed after armed kidnappers abducted him earlier Thursday from a hotel and took him to an undisclosed location in apparent retaliation for a U.S. special forces' raid that seized a Libyan Al Qaeda suspect from the streets of Tripoli.

Government Spokesman Mohammed Kaabar told the news agency LANA that Zidan has been "set free" and was on his way to his office on Thursday.

Zidan later arrived at the office and appeared at a Cabinet meeting aired live on Libyan TV. He thanked those who helped free him but provided no details and avoided pointing fingers at those behind the abduction.

"We hope this matter will be treated with wisdom and rationality, far from tension," he said. "There are many things that need dealing with."


Libya is a god damn terrorist hell hole thanks to the West.

Oh snap! I bet he had info on Benghazi that the U.S. did not want getting out so some "terrorists" got a hold of him.
