"We Came, We Saw, He Died" – Revisiting The Incredible Disaster That Is Libya

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

In retrospect, Obama’s intervention in Libya was an abject failure, judged even by its own standards. Libya has not only failed to evolve into a democracy; it has devolved into a failed state. Violent deaths and other human rights abuses have increased severalfold. Rather than helping the United States combat terrorism, as Qaddafi did during his last decade in power, Libya now serves as a safe haven for militias affiliated with both al Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). The Libya intervention has harmed other U.S. interests as well: undermining nuclear nonproliferation, chilling Russian cooperation at the UN, and fueling Syria’s civil war.?

 

As bad as Libya’s human rights situation was under Qaddafi, it has gotten worse since NATO ousted him. Immediately after taking power, the rebels perpetrated scores of reprisal killings, in addition to torturing, beating, and arbitrarily detaining thousands of suspected Qaddafi supporters. The rebels also expelled 30,000 mostly black residents from the town of Tawergha and burned or looted their homes and shops, on the grounds that some of them supposedly had been mercenaries. Six months after the war, Human Rights Watch declared that the abuses “appear to be so widespread and systematic that they may amount to crimes against humanity.”?

 

As a consequence of such pervasive violence, the UN estimates that roughly 400,000 Libyans have fled their homes, a quarter of whom have left the country altogether. ?

 

– From the post: The Forgotten War – Understanding the Incredible Debacle Left Behind by NATO in Libya

Shortly after the NATO-led war which ousted Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ebulliently boasted with a characteristic sociopathic giddiness, the following on network television:

Indeed, from Iraq to Libya, and indeed across the entire planet, the U.S. government has an uncanny ability to take an already bad geopolitical situation and turn it into a complete and total chaotic humanitarian disaster. It’d be one thing if the woman in the above video clip had been disgraced and forced into exile in Chappaqua, but the disturbing reality is she will most likely be promoted to the next President of these United States.

In order to fully appreciate what a clueless homicidal maniac she is, let’s reexamine the unmitigated nightmare that is Libya. A nightmare that Clinton and her interviewer laughed uncontrollably about creating.

From Reuters:

At least 47 people were killed on Thursday when Libya’s worst bomb attack since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi hit a police training center as hundreds of recruits gathered for a morning meeting.

 

No group immediately claimed the attack in the town of Zliten, but suicide blasts and car bombings have increased in Libya as Islamist militants have taken advantage of the North African country’s chaos to expand their presence.

 

Since a NATO-backed revolt ousted Gaddafi, Libya has slipped deeper into turmoil with two rival governments and a range of armed factions locked in a struggle for control of the OPEC state and its oil wealth.

 

In the chaos, Islamic State militants have grown in strength, taking over the city of Sirte and launching attacks on oilfields. Islamic State fighters this week attacked two major oil export terminals.

 

Western powers are pushing Libya’s factions to back a U.N.-brokered national unity government to join forces against Islamic State militants, but the agreement faces major resistance from several factions on the ground.

 

For more than a year, an armed faction called Libya Dawn has controlled Tripoli, setting up its own self-declared government, reinstating the former parliament and forcing the recognized government to operate in the east of the country.

 

Western officials say forming a united government would be the first step in Libya seeking international help to fight against Islamic State, including training for a new army and possible air strikes against militant targets.

But hey…

Finally, if you want to understand just how long the war against Syria has been in the works (before ISIS became a huge problem), let’s revisit the following 2011 tweet by “Crazy” John McCain:

And you wonder why the world is in the state it’s in…

So The Hillbilly was instrumental in the disassembly of "reasonable"* governments in Libya, Yemen, Ukraine just to name a few on her watch that have since turned into "terrorist"* paradises.
Who dare say she has no experience?  Hell, served as Satan's First Designate while he's been masquerading as the Anti-Christ.
* Merely used as relatives, not absolutes... just to say sure as all hell ain't nuffin;' improved there since the West got involved.  Well, maybe morticians and arms dealers.

Here's the kicker, a lot of people -- a lot -- will vote for this sociopath and think that they're standing up for something righteous and good.  Boggles the mind.

If she were my opponent I'd run that Gadaffi tape night and day with footage of Gadaffi being sodomized with a sword (read: yes, people, she's that sick).

Hillary is unfit to be President! She’s got:

Kleptomania (Corzine disorder)

Pseudologia Fantastica (pathological lying)

Megalomania (0bama syndrome)

Schizophrenia (McCain syndrome)

I’d rather vote for a cross-eyed candidate with hiccups, gonorrhea, and Touretts.

Wouldn’t it be fun to watch a President shouting out obscenities during the State of the Union address?  ;-)

Pre-Ghaddafi:

 

  1. There is no electricity bill in Libya; electricity is free for all its citizens.
  2. There is no interest on loans, banks in Libya are state-owned and loans given to all its citizens at zero percent interest by law.
  3. Having a home considered a human right in Libya.
  4. All newlyweds in Libya receive $60,000 dinar (U.S.$50,000) by the government to buy their first apartment so to help start up the family.
  5. Education and medical treatments are free in Libya. Before Gaddafi only 25 percent of Libyans were literate. Today, the figure is 83 percent.
  6. Should Libyans want to take up farming career, they would receive farming land, a farming house, equipments, seeds and livestock to kickstart their farms are all for free.

  8. If a Libyan buys a car, the government subsidizes 50 percent of the price.
  9. The price of petrol in Libya is $0.14 per liter.
  10. Libya has no external debt and its reserves amounting to $150 billion are now frozen globally.

  13. A mother who gives birth to a child receive U.S.$5,000.
  14. 40 loaves of bread in Libya costs $0.15.
  15. 25 percent of Libyans have a university degree.

That woman is a batshit crazy psychopath.  "we came, we saw, he died."  That comment should chill you to the bone, because this woman can feel no warmth, no empathy, towards a human being.  There is no depth to the depravity she will sink to in accomplishing her or her handler's ends.  She's the perfect candidate to a nation whose majority gives two shits about their future.  I suppose there are an enlightened few who would dare stand against this freakish inhuman twatstain of a beast.  Oh I have more to write but I need a break.  Where's my beer.....

she is not crazy and neither is obama.  and they didn't fail either.

this is the desired outcome.  for one thing, israelis want to be surrounded by failed states in civil war, less risk to them and more likely easy pickings when everyone's tired or dead.  also libya was talking about a gold backed currency, poison for the petrodollar.

it's not a bug it's a feature.

Why'd you say pre- Ghaddafi?  Didn't you intend to attribute those accomplishments to him?

I'd heard some of them before- but that's one helluva list.

Now, we have to figure out how successful he would have been with oil at $30/bbl, or if the new regimes in Libya/Syraq are the root cause of $30 crude.

I mean, if I suddenly found myself in possession of a productive asset that cost me nothing to develop, I too could sell my product for next to nothing with no worries- for awhile, anyway.

b. Increase French influence in North Africa,

c. Improve his intemai political situation in France,

The Brits are up to their necks as well - first in 2011 and now in 2016:

From a website (Elite UK Forces) run by people with close connections to current special forces teams - i.e. they are probably ex-members.

"SAS teams are said to be on the ground advising Libyan military commanders in battle-space management i.e. the deployment and coordination of air, ground and naval assets. They are also gathering intelligence for British military chiefs, who may decide to recommend air strikes against IS targets.

It would seem appropriate if British Special Forces are in Libya as a result of the deteriorating situation there, since they played a role in bringing it about. The country has spiralled into chaos following the ousting of Gaddafi in 2011. British Special Forces assisted anti-Gaddafi rebels in that task. SAS advisors and forward air controller accompanied rebel forces on their march to victory, including taking the capital, Tripoli. Post-Gaddafi Libya is now a patchwork of different factions including competing governmental forces, criminal gangs and Al-Qaeda and IS terrorists"

I hope some liberals read this post but I don't garnish much hope:

Only the willfully ignorant can support this profoundly corrupt woman!

The 32 questions that Hillary needs to answer:

1. when did she know her husband was a serial abuser, and does she feel guilty for destroying his accusers?

2. Explain precisely the trades made in the Cattle Futures scandal where $1,000 was turned into $99,000 in a matter of weeks?

3. Why didn't she do anything to protect the Americans in Benghazi?

4. Who is Saul Alinsky and why was he her mentor?

5. When she was working on Watergate, why did her boss Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, call Hillary a “liar” and “an unethical, dishonest lawyer” and have her fired?

6. What really happened with Travelgate?

7. What really happened with the Rose Law Firm?

8. What really happened with Whitewater?

9. What gave Hillary the right to see private FBI files of her political enemies in File Gate?

10. Why won't she turn over her illegal server with state department e-mails to congress?

11. Why does your foundation accept money from avowed terror states?

12. What is her take on the Vince Foster "Suicide"?

13. Why did she think she was entitled to steal the White House furniture when she left?

14. Why do you lie even about things that mean nothing: lying about being under sniper fire in Bosnia, lying about being named after Sir Edmund Hillary, or lying that your grandparents were immigrants?

15. Should America be concerned that in Chin agate, the 22 people that were convicted of fraud or for funneling Asian funds into the DNC were associates of Bill Clinton?

16. Did selling stays at the Lincoln Bedroom to political donors make you feel like a wh)o(re?

17. Does Hillary think Juanita Broadrick lied when she said on national news that Bill Clinton raped her?

18. Is she still okay that Bill goes to pedophile island with Jeff Epstein?

19. Why are there so many murdered and suicided people in the Clinton's immediate circle?

20. Doesn't the fact that the Clinton Foundation has to amend 5 years of its tax returns for improper reporting imply that you were involved in an illegal RICO enterprise?

21. Doesn't approving the Russian-owned Uranium One deal as secretary of state--because of illegal contributions to your foundation--in fact make you a traitor to this country?

22. Was it wise to have at least four Clinton Foundation board of directors that have either been convicted or charged of the financial crimes of bribery and fraud?

23. Why, Hillary, did you pay your female senate staffers 72% of what you paid your male staffers?

24. When you represented an accused pedophile rapist, why did you laugh when you got him off even though you believed him to be guilty?

25. She said she had one e-mail address, it came out that she had two; She said she had one device, it came out that she had two: She said none of her e-mails on her private server was classified, but when the State Dept handed over 300 e-mails the FBI redacted large sections of one, proving again she was wrong. Thus, Ms. Clinton, are you incompetent or just a congenital liar?

26. In a CNN interview you said your records were not under subpoena, when in fact the Congress of The United States of America had issued two subpoenas before you destroyed your server. Do you think it's impossible that you will ever go to jail, or are you just psychopathic?

27. There were over 600 e-mail requests for additional security before the Benghazi attack--you said you saw none of them. Are you so grossly incompetent that an ambassador--who you appointed and knew personally--can't get assistance in the most dangerous part of the world? 600 requests?

28. Within hours of the attack you promoted a false narrative that a video was responsible for the attacks, yet you sent e-mails to Chelsea, the President of Egypt and others that you knew it was a planned terror attack. Do you routinely lie to the families of fallen heroes and the American public?

29. Why did Chelsea even get an update on Benghazi? Does she have Top Secret clearance?

30. Marc Rich, was to be indicted on 65 criminal counts, including tax evasion, fraud and working with Iran during the hostage crisis, was granted a pardon by your husband during his last day in office. Do you think it's a coincidence that Rich’s wife contributed $450,000 to the foundation for the Clinton Presidential Library and $100,000 to Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign?

31. Wasn't it an outright lie when you claimed to have tried to join the Marines at age 27 when it a matter of record that you were an outspoken critic of the Vietnam War?

32. In the recently released Huma Abedin e-mail--your closest aid-- she described you as "Often Confused." Should the "Often Confused" be running the country?

The one important question she WAS asked concerned her accomplishments as Secretary of State. This is the gem we got:

“My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I'm glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know… the remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn’t do that and I’m proud of that. Very proud. I would say that’s a major accomplishment.”

- Hillary Clinton, March 11, 2014

So the Clinton's weren't so bad, eh?

If you're under 50 you really need to read this. If you’re over 50, you lived through it, so share it with those under 50. Amazing to me how much I had forgotten!

When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.

Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as "my worst mistake." Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children from the gassing and subsequent fire.

Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovered of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.

Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections also went predictably well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

Many younger votes will have no knowledge of "Travelgate." Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House. Following this debacle, the FBI, out of embarrassment, closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.

Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the #$%$ eruption" and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle were:

She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.

She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr's investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.

Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for "Lying under Oath" to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.

Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, "I do not recall," "I have no recollection," and "I don’t know" a total of 56 times while under oath.

After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen on the way out.

What a swell party – ready for another four or eight year of this type low-life mess?

Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and the "pay to play" schemes of the Clinton Foundation – we have no idea what shoe will fall next. But to her loyal fans - "what difference does it make?"

Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!

In addition to various consensual relationships with women not his wife, some going on for years, the Governor of Arkansas found it necessary to have his security detail escort a total stranger who was at the same state employee convention in Little Rock up to his room upon which he dropped his pants and requested sex. In an amazing ruling, a friendly judge ruled there was no criminal act in the Governor of Arkansas' actions even though it violated various laws regarding abuse of authority and sexual harassment. The woman sued. The Governor went on to be elected President and went all the way to the SCOTUS to get the lawsuit quashed while he was President, and he lost 9-0 before the SCOTUS. While being deposed in the lawsuit, he deliberately lied under oath and got caught by a certain blue dress, and he also was guilty of obstruction of justice in his efforts to affect the testimony of the owner of that blue dress. He was impeached, and in an act of total disregard for the law, his political Party circled the wagons and made the case about his dalliance with an intern when they knew it was not the underlying case in which he perjured himself and obstructed justice. To this day, the President's political Party is successful at covering up what he actually did to get sued and to this date most people incorrectly identify his offense as having been his consensual dalliance with the intern. His political Party and their supporters completely destroyed the reputation of the women, calling them liars, b...bos, sl...ts, Carville had his famous quote about dragging a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park, and the whole thing was declared a political witch hunt even though the President was guilty as Hades and had to pay off his accuser.
The President is revered by his Party for treating women like garbage and their true feelings about women are evident in their defending the indefensible

This is what Trump is Warning Hillary about......and you know he will use it.

from Brittan's Daily Mail.

Bill Clinton And The Pedophile: The Sex Scandal That Could Destroy Hillary’s Presidential Ambitions

Long history of American people willing to overlook his sexual promiscuity....but not this.

Why did a convicted billionaire pedophile named Jeffrey Epstein that pimped out underage girls to powerful men have 21 contact phone numbers for Bill Clinton?

And why did Clinton fly on “multiple occasions” to the private Caribbean island where Epstein regularly held wild sexual orgies? Let me give you a hint: it was not to discuss politics over milk and cookies. Every once in a while, we get a small peek into the twisted sexual world of the global elite. In this case, a Florida lawsuit that alleges that Britain’s Prince Andrew had sex with a 17-year-old “sex slave” provided by Epstein is making headlines all over the planet. But of potentially even greater importance is what this lawsuit is revealing about Bill Clinton. If it can be proven that Bill Clinton had sex with underage girls provided by Jeffrey Epstein that could potentially destroy any chance that Hillary Clinton has of winning the presidency in 2016.

Since that time, approximately 40 other women have accused Epstein of sexual misconduct.

So needless to say, this is one very sick individual.

And right now the mainstream media in the U.S. is largely ignoring the fact that Bill Clinton flew down to Epstein’s private Caribbean island on “multiple occasions”

Details buried in original court papers filed against pervert Jeffrey Epstein, 61, reveal that he recorded the sordid orgies he threw for VIPs at his luxury homes using cameras hidden in the walls of guest bedrooms.

So if Bill Clinton did commit a crime, somewhere there may actually be video of it.

But wait, there’s even more to this story. The following comes from the Daily Mail…

The lawsuit claims that Clinton was friends with an unnamed woman who ‘kept images of naked underage children on her computer, helped to recruit underage children for Epstein… and photographed underage females in sexually explicit poses‘.

While he cut off ties with Epstein, this woman’s abuses apparently did not end their relationship as she was reportedly one of the 400 guests at Chelsea Clinton’s 2010 wedding.

Though the lawsuit may be bringing up sexual skeletons from Clinton’s past, he has added to the drama of late by posing for a photo with two known prostitutes at a fundraiser in Los Angeles last month.

Obviously Bill Clinton has a lot of hard questions that he needs to answer.

But if Bill Clinton cannot be charged with a crime, will the American people even care what else he did...I think this time they just might.
When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform.

Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven! One more thing... when she was Secretary of State, Bill gave a speech to an enemy country for one million dollars and the next year gave another for one million dollars. What did he say to warrant such a large charge? The money went into their Foundation Group, tax free. Considered illegal!

It will certainly be interesting to see just how far Trump goes down that rabbit hole (if at all).

Who's idea was it to flood the country with immigrants in time for Clinton's re-election?  

"My staff and I agreed that we needed to focus on the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), which appeared to be running out of control. By the time we came to the subject, investigations by the General Accounting Office (GAO) and congressional committees had already indicated that the White House used the INS to further its political agenda. A blatant politicization of the agency took place during the 1996 presidential campaign when the White House pressured the INS into expediting its "Citizenship USA" (CUSA) program to grant citizenship to thousands of aliens that the White House counted as likely Democratic voters. To ensure maximum impact, the INS concentrated on aliens in key states — California, Florida, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, and Texas — that hold a combined 181 electoral votes, just 89 short of the total needed to win the election.

The program was placed under the direction of Vice President Al Gore. We received from the GAO a few e-mails indicating Vice President Gore’s role in the plan (which are included in Appendix A at the back of the book). He was responsible for keeping the pressure on, to make sure the aliens were pushed through by September 1, the last day to register for the presidential election."

[...]

"The White House, the INS, and the Justice Department publicly denied any political motive in the CUSA program to expedite the citizenship procedure. What the United States got is undeniable:

  1. More than 75,000 new citizens who had arrest records when they applied;
  2. An additional 115,000 citizens whose fingerprints were unclassifiable for various technical reasons and were never resubmitted; and
  3. Another 61,000 people who were given citizenship with no fingerprints submitted at all."

Brilliant post, thank you!

But ya' know, the Donald is a really shitty choice, also.

People say you shouldn't let the perfect stand in the way of the good, but Goddammit, I'm pretty fkn disgusted with those people, too!

The GOP could capitalize on this.  There is one problem, though.  They would have done the same thing.

Agree with the Gestalt of your comment, i.e. R/D doesnt matter, global war is GOOD.  However, the Dims must own some special hypocrisy points for Obama's 'Peace Prize-esque' gunboat Mid East 'nation building'.  When Bush did it, oh my God, we saw Cindy Sheehan get presstituted regularly.  When the White Housenigger does it, NOT. A. PEEP. of complaint from the presstitutes.  Kind of like Shillery's silence on 'womyn's rights' in the Middle East during her days as Sec of State.  But . . 'What difference does it make"?  From a hypocrisy perspective, a good layer, layer and a half of pure bullshit.

One of the major reasons we are where we are today. The conservatives that had principles and would call a spade a spade have all been disenfranchised or driven out of office.

Just send them all to the US, so they can help break our democracy.
