What could go wrong? They repented! “Libya frees ‘repentant’ Islamists,” from the BBC, October 15 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Libya has released 88 Islamist inmates, some of them belonging to a group with suspected links to al-Qaeda, the country’s state-run charity has said.
It said among those freed were 45 members of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, which had been accused of trying to oust Col Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.
The militants had been in prolonged talks with Tripoli to reach a deal to renounce violence and win the release.
“Renounce violence.” Apparently working for their goal — imposing Sharia — by means other than violence is just fine.
