Libya had a problem with Islamic militants; who knew?

From the New York Times, September 24:
Deadly Attack in Libya Was Major Blow to C.I.A. Efforts

Among personnel pulled from Benghazi after the assault on the American mission were intelligence operatives and contractors who were crucial to surveillance on militants.

What? We needed to have surveillance on militants in post-Kaddafi Libya? But I thought Libya was a land of democracy lovers who were all singing:

I see my freedom come shining
From the west unto the east.
Any day now
Any way now
I shall be released.
