30. Sure. But you contended that they "disproportionately made up the fighters...

...who took down Ghadaffi."

Yet we know that the fighters in Benghazi and the east never broke through Adjabiya until until near the end of the war!

I do not disagree that islamist elements that are still festering after the war still exist in Libya or that even they were fighting in some respect against Gaddafi (if only because they wanted revenge for being suppressed).

I consider them counter-revolutionaries and not representative of the vast majority of the Libyan revolutionaries who overthrew Gaddafi.
