A chemistry teacher from Texas was shot and killed Thursday as he jogged along a street in Benghazi, Libya.

33-year-old Ronnie Smith taught at the International school in Benghazi, Libya. A spokesman for the Al-Galsa Hospital said Smith's body was brought to the hospital early Thursday with gunshot wounds.

Smith was running near the American Consulate where the U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans were killed in a militant attack in 2012.

Smith taught at Benghazi's International School that follows an American curriculum.

No group has claimed responsibility for the killing. Smith was one of four people killed in Benghazi, today, according to the hospital spokesman.

Libya is still dominated by heavily armed militias that helped overthrow dictator Moammar Khadafy in 2011 and have yet to give up their weapons to the government.

I hope chemistry teachers and their colleagues in the sciences like myself in international science/education will be protected in areas dominated by the religion of peace and know and appreciate the difference of being in or having served in the Peace Corps in South Korea vs North Korea.

How very sad...maybe...the chemistry teacher should have studied a little history...and psychology of terrorism, international politics, and basic common sense. It is truly sad...that anyone would think an American could hope to be safe in ANY Islamic country as long as Obama and his cowardly band of traitors are in office.
