He followed me inside the courthouse, but luckily my driver Khaled was close by, and interceded on my behalf. According to Khaled, the guard had angrily threatened to harm me. When I again engaged him in conversation, he told me "this flag is the true flag of Islam," and was unresponsive when I argued with him that historically Islam has never been represented by a single flag. The guard claimed repeatedly that there is no al Qaeda in Libya, and that the flag flying atop the courthouse is “dark black,” while the al Qaeda flag is charcoal black. To many locals, it’s a distinction without a difference. One man approached me with a friendly warning: "I recommend that you leave now; [the Islamist fighters] could be watching you." http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/10/libya-al-qaeda-plants-its-flag-at-benghazi-courthouse.html
It may be a hoax, Ess, but it was carried by many news agencies. Seeing that I felt no reason to doubt it's probability. As far as mainstream covering it if it were true, that's a laugh. They would bury it as deeply as they bury everything else that could reflect badly on the administration. When they get the reputation for NOT covering the news, one has to look elsewhere.
I wish Egypt were a joke, too, where we ousted the big cheese without even knowing who the rebels were and are now seeing Christians being massacred. If that's a hoax, too, then the footage and words of the fellow on 60 minutes was really faked well.
