Four US military personnel being held by Libyan government

Only One question WHY?

 Four U.S. military personnel are being held in Libyan government custody, the State Department said Friday night.

The circumstances and location of their detention were not immediately clear.

“We are seeking to further ascertain the facts and ensure their release,” said State Department spokesman Jen Psaki. “We are in touch with Libyan officials on this issue.”

The New York Times reported the episode appeared to have taken place in a tourist area about an hour’s drive from the capital of Tripoli and that the region was generally considered friendly to Westerners.

Tensions have run high between the United States and Libya since a terrorist attack against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
