And these are the people which the US, through NATO, helped “liberate” from Gaddafi–now with their freedom they will not target Americans or anyone who is against Islam.

Protesters in Libya and Egypt stormed U.S. diplomatic missions Tuesday on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in a day of rage that underscored the growth of fundamentalist movements in countries where new governments were swept to power in the aftermath of last year’s Arab spring.
One American was killed when militants stormed the U.S. consulate in Libya’s second largest city, Benghazi, the Reuters news agency reported, though the report was not immediately confirmed by the State Department in Washington, which described the situation as “fluid.”
“We can confirm that our office in Benghazi, Libya, has been attacked by a group of militants,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement emailed to reporters. “We are working with the Libyans now to secure the compound. We condemn in strongest terms this attack on our diplomatic mission.”
In Cairo, thousands of demonstrators stormed the U.S. Embassy, lowered the American flag and destroyed it, then danced atop the walls in a protest that lasted hours. Egyptian police made no effort to confront the demonstrators. It wasn’t until hours later that Egyptian police forced the demonstrators from the embassy compound.
Nuland said State Department officials had been unable to confirm whether the two attacks were connected.
