Monkey attack sets off human attacks in tribal clashes in Libya

Beautiful Downtown Benghazi, Libya -- According to medics and activists, last week, three young men turned a pet monkey (not named 'Bonzo') loose on a high school girl. It scratched and bit her and the girl's family sought revenge.

So they killed the three young men along with the monkey. 

Not exactly a tit for tat retaliation, but certainly a move that should have ended the situation and brought in the law to deal with the matter.

But this is Benghazi--home to homicidal tribal lunatics.

At least 20 other people were killed and 50 were wounded because that's how they deal with their anger. 

Bader al-Daheli, a civil activist said that the two main tribes in the city of Sabha, Awlad Suleiman and Gadhadhfa, aer both backed by armed groups and nobody, but nobody, walks on anyone else's lawn or allows their monkey to do any monkey business.

This type of behavior and 600 requests for more security at our Benghazi compound by Ambassador Chris Stevens should have been more than enough for any competent secretary of state to take action.

The operant word is "competent."
