#1 The story about the messed-up accounts was actually recycled from the Detroit Public Schools.
The emergency manager decreed that everybody would have to pick up their checks in person. About 250 paychecks went unclaimed. So add a couple of zeros and you get the Libya story. Lazy journalism.
OTOH, it might be true. Maybe the border guards have been reading the Detroit Free Press and figured it would be a good idea.
