Two news articles hit my RSS feed last week within 24 hours of each other. In the first, titled America the Lawless, the author describes various ways in which our government flaunts both foreign rule of law as well as our own.

Last weekend, a Delta Force team kidnapped a Libyan, Abu Anas al-Libi, off of a public street in Tripoli. The Navy men did not have a warrant for his arrest, did not have the permission of the local authorities or the Libyan government to carry out this kidnapping, and were unlawfully present bearing arms in public in Libya.

Lo and behold, less than a day later another bit of news hit my feed. This one is from Middle East analyst Michael J. Totten in a short article titled Libyan Prime Minister Kidnapped.

This can’t be good: Terrorists just kidnapped Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan from the luxury hotel in Tripoli where he and many other government officials live.

Seems they grabbed him to retaliate against an American Special Forces raid greenlit by the Libyan government against suspected Al Qaeda member Abu Anas al-Libi.

We reap what we sow.
