This attack was committed by a small group of extremists who do not represent the Libyan population. They seek to destroy any reconstruction attempts in my mother country. As often is the case, extremists try to take advantage of the absence of security in a country that has just gotten out of a civil war. They try so hard to destabilize the peace that the majority of the population have fought so hard to establish.
It is only when we stick our uninvited nose in it that some group decides to smack that nosy nose.
"Arab Spring" is something purely created by the Media (like 90% of the news). The only surprise in all of this was the regime change in Egypt, which has historically been pretty stable. Libya, Syria, Tunisia, Iraq, et. al. have been notoriously tumultuous hotbeds for centuries. It is still in this modern day more about tribal/clan alliances than national, racial, or religious identity. "Arab Spring" implied a unifying movement among Arabs and North Africans but still 99% of the fighting is amongst themselves, it is just not played by the media until a US or European is involved. The vast majority of Mid-Easterners are far too busy fighting amongst themselves to care about the US or the West. It is only when we stick our uninvited nose in it that some group decides to smack that nosy nose.
