Libya: How Hillary Clinton Destroyed a Country


“We came, we saw, he died,” exclaimed
an ebullient Hillary Clinton
, as she exulted over the horrific death of
Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi, who was sodomized with a bayonet before being
brutally murdered by rampaging militiamen. Visiting Tripoli, the Libyan capital,
the American Secretary of State was eager to take credit for the “liberation”
of yet another Muslim country by Western powers acting in concert. An extensive
and quite revealing New York Times investigation (Pt. 1 here,
Pt. 2 here)
reports on “a ‘ticktock’ that described her starring role in the events that
had led to this moment. The timeline, her top policy aide, Jake Sullivan, wrote,
demonstrated Mrs. Clinton’s ‘leadership/ownership/stewardship of this country’s
Libya policy from start to finish.’ The memo’s
put her at the center of everything: ‘HRC announces … HRC directs
… HRC travels … HRC engages,’ it read.”

These days, however, out on the campaign trail, Mrs. Clinton is not quite so
eager to take ownership of what can only be characterized as an unmitigated
disaster, a case history dramatizing the perils of “liberal” interventionism
from inception to bloody denouement.

Mrs. Clinton was easily won over by the Libyan rebels who presented
a utopian view of what the post-revolutionary era would look like: there would
be free elections, a free media, women would be able to “do it all,” and everyone
would get a pony. They “’said all the right things about supporting democracy
and inclusivity and building Libyan institutions, providing some hope that we
might be able to pull this off,’ said Philip H. Gordon, one of her assistant
secretaries. ‘They gave us what we wanted to hear. And you do want to believe.’”

Confirmation bias in a writer or reporter is fatal, but only
to his/her own career: in a Secretary of State it is a death sentence for thousands.
And that’s exactly how it turned out in Hillary’s case.

    Libya will go down as one of the most stupid stunts in the history of mankind. The USA is about to put troops into the country probably because they cannot insure that Libya prices its oil in dollars. We have lots of troops and it really should not be too hard for our reservist and national guard to spend more time deployed than state side. We need to keep the world safe but my question was the world not safer with the old government of Libya and the same for Iraq. The USA has a very long history especially since wii of screwing up the world. Hillary probably does not want her email messages released because people will learn the disasters that resulted from her actions.

      “We” need to keep the world “safe”? Who is “we”?
      The British Crown/N.A.TO. is not me or anybody I know. I’m a civilian. I don’t work for the pentagon or the INternational Guard. I don’t want a career as a traitor and baby killer. What is “safe”? Safe for whom?
      Lying, theft, rape and murder are not the responsibilities of civilian governments. Federal Reserve notes are N.A.T.O. /British Crown military scrip.
      The pentagon and INternational Guard traitors sell their souls and OUR country for fake money. Then they come back here to imprison us for speaking and printing.
      Where is the plague of heroine coming from that is killing our children? Is it brought here by the mafia that has it’s local headquarters called the V.F.W.? They have traveled to Afghanistan to protect the drug lords there.
