It seems that the North African country of Libya, too long ruled by despotic Moammar Gadhafi, is an endless source of horror.
It is reported that the remains of more than 1,200 prisoners who were massacred in 1996 by the Gadhafi regime have been discovered in a desert in Libya.
The victims apparently included Islamic clerics and students who opposed Gadhafi.
Considering the Libyan government’s role in the deadly 1988 bombing of a U.S.-bound jetliner, the evidence of this more recent massacre is perhaps not entirely surprising. We certainly do not mourn Gadhafi’s recent removal from power.
But man’s inhumanity to man never fails to shock us — all over again.
