Hey! Here's an Idea!

Let's take a bunch of people who hate us, train them to be "special commandos" and then turn them loose. This WILL come back and bite us in the third-point-of-contact.
Mujahideen ring a bell?
I mean seriously? Train Muslims to fight and kill other Muslims? Does anyone think this is a good idea?

U.S. to Help Create an Elite Libyan Force to Combat Islamic Extremists

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon and State Department are speeding up efforts to help the Libyan government create a commando force to combat Islamic extremists like the ones who killed the American ambassador in Libya last month and to help counter the country’s fractious militias, according to internal government documents.

The Obama administration quietly won Congress’s approval last month to shift about $8 million from Pentagon operations and counterterrorism aid budgeted for Pakistan to begin building an elite Libyan force over the next year that could ultimately number about 500 troops. American Special Operations forces could conduct much of the training, as they have with counterterrorism forces in Pakistan and Yemen, American officials said.
