American teacher slain in Libya

By Elise Labott

American teacher Ronnie Smith has been shot and killed in Benghazi, according to the Facebook page of the international school in Libya where he worked.

The U.S. State Department confirmed the killing, and identified the educator as Ronald Thomas Smith II.

"The untimely death of Ronnie Smith has been felt by the whole school community," the International School Benghazi posted on its Facebook page. "He was a much loved teacher who supported students in their learning and always had time to help when asked. Ronnie was a professional who gave his time freely and without question. We do not understand why this has happened and it is extremely difficult for his students and his colleagues to accept."

      Good grief Burt, a man is dead. This is no time to joke. They should not let Americans go to Libya since most people there hate us anyway. In fact, it might have been better all the way around had the U.S. and it's rubber stamp allies not taken Qaddafy out!!!

    This is just one more reason that we should never have instigated the uprising and ultimate overthrow of Mohammar Qaddaffy in Libya. From now on, fewer and fewer places around the world will be deemed safe for Americans as our senselessly aggressive foreign policies caused nothing but harm and resentment! When will those idiots in Washington ever learn?
