The bodies of two interrogators who worked for Muammar Qaddafi were found in fields outside the rebel stronghold Benghazi. The execution-style killings and kidnapping by masked, armed men have led to rumors in the already-paranoid city of a death squad hunting down forces loyal to Qaddafi. Prosecutors are investigating four such attacks, including another murder, and the possibility that Islamists imprisoned by Qaddafi are seeking revenge. For weeks, opposition authorities have been trying to round up suspected Qaddafi loyalists they say were trying to overthrow their transitional government. But rebels say their security forces are not involved in the squad. Rumors are also circulating that an armed group allied with the rebels or Qaddafi loyalists posing as allies are responsible.
The murders are an anomaly in Benghazi, which is growing safer as police stations have reopened, youth volunteers have cleaned up the streets, and authorities are contemplating reopening schools. The opposition's "justice coordinator" is working on charging the killers, whose actions undermine the rebel's stated vision for a peaceful transition to a country committed to the rule of law. This is a war of rumors, Colonel Fawzi Omami, a security guard at the radio station told the New York Times. People are very edgy.

Nooooo, that can’t be right. Those guys are like the founding fathers, yearning only for freedom,,, Obama told me so./
Obviously Qaddafi murdered all the decent people already..
WAR ISN’T PRETTY FOLKS!IT NEVER HAS BEEN! Looks like a bit of payback thats all. What did us American Patriots do to the Tories after the Revolution? It wasn’t nice. Qaddfi has his hit squads you can be sure. I am only sure he would kill more people. Looks like these two goons just got a little Justice—sort of like what we did to the Nazis after WW II or what we did to UBL a while back.
The rebels need to change their function from ‘death squad’ to ‘death panel’ and they’ll be just fine.
AQ acting like AQ, now who would have thought that possible, why do they keep calling the ragtags, rebels, when they are not even from Libya.
The American Revolution from England was supported by the colonists with 26% in favor of independence.
Meet the new boss....same as the old boss...
