The Hand that Feeds

Murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens was a victim of his own efforts.

In his own words, he "was thrilled to watch the Libyan people stand up and demand their rights" in 2011, and personally took part in the effort to overthrow Colonel Khadafy:
Stevens, whose diplomatic foothold were a couple of battered tables, was on literally on the rebels' side while the revolution was at its most vulnerable and in danger of being crushed by Gadhafi's troops who were moving on the city. The threat was pushed back at the last minute by the intervention of NATO planes which began bombing Gadhafi's tanks and troops.
And now, the wild dogs have bitten the hand that fed them.

Perhaps the murderers themselves were not amongst the glorious and noble opposition in 2011.  Indeed, perhaps they were friends of the Colonel.

No matter.  In the Colonel's time, there were zero United States Ambassadors killed.

Change has come to Libya.
