Emails Prove Hillary Knew Libyan Rebels Were Conducting Ethnic Cleansing, Supported Them Anyway

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Dan Wright via,

On New Year’s Eve, the State Department released 3,000 new Hillary Clinton emails from her tenure as secretary of state. While much of the corporate media dove into investigating pointless gossip, Brad Hoff at the Levant Report decided to look for more clues into understanding the epic failure that was the 2011 war on Libya by the US and NATO.

What Hoff discovered in the emails was Secretary Clinton being briefed by a trusted advisor, Sidney Blumenthal, on events in Libya where Clinton’s public statements appear to contradict her private understanding. The issues range from the early presence of special forces and al Qaida-linked militants on the ground to the material motivations of France (gold, oil). And, of course, more evidence that Clinton knew the claims about Qaddafi issuing Viagra to troops for rapes were bogus.

But, perhaps, the most troubling revelation is that Secretary Clinton was being explicitly told that the Libyan rebel forces were conducting racially charged massacres of black Africans under the rationale of labeling them “foreign mercenaries.”

In an email on March 27, 2011 [PDF], Blumenthal informs Secretary Clinton that a Libyan rebel commander told him that “his troops continue to summarily execute all foreign mercenaries captured in the fighting.”

Summarily execute is a nice way of saying they are straight up killing anyone they see, who they think could be a “foreign mercenary.”

So, you ask, how are the rebels determining who are (and are not) foreign mercenaries based merely on sight?

The answer is based on the color of their skin. But the killings were not just cases of mistaken identity, they were part of a racial grudge connected to perceived favoritism by the Gaddafi government.

As the BBC reported in 2011, the war for the rebels extended to black Libyan civilians and sub-Saharan contract workers. The town of Tawergha, whose residents were descendants of black slaves, was “cleansed” by the rebels. The 30,000 people who lived in Tawergha were forced to flee, many unable to outrun the rebels and subjected to beatings, rape, and those summary executions Blumenthal mentioned.

A 2011 report from Human Rights Watch accuses rebels of terrorizing the people of Tawergha. After setting their homes on fire, the rebels captured the black Libyans and subjected them to torture and severe beatings, sometimes leading to death.”

The ethnic cleansing campaign by the rebels continued throughout 2011 and into 2012, when The Telegraph reported black migrant workers, along with black Libyans, were imprisoned, abused, and labeled foreign mercenaries.

In a video published by The Telegraph, a black African is ordered by a rebel to eat the former Libyan flag while in a cage.

The tragic irony of all this is that Hillary Clinton led the charge for a war in Libya based on a claim of a potential massacre in Benghazi. The massacre in Benghazi never occurred (and was likely overblown), but real ethnic cleansing and massacres did occur when the US and NATO empowered the Libyan rebels to overthrow Gaddafi and use their weapons beyond the war zone.

Today, Libya is a failed state infested with the Islamic State and other Islamic terrorist groups thanks to Clinton and friends. Quite a liberation.

A Clinton breaking the law? There's a fucking surprise...

Where should we start?

Very presidential indeed.

Don't you guys understand?? It's ok for Hillary to support lynchings and murder of people for being black, because she's a Democrat.

Bare minimum- put her on Harry Reid's exercise bike for a while.

Everywhere the Clintons go they leave a trail of dead bodies.

She should be in prison, along with Merkel.

Too bad she'll probably end up right next to Corzine... on the outside.

Yet another US foreign policy succes story.

Glad we own the Hague, as this sounds a lot like issues they should deal with.

Of course, they were Africans.  So nobody gives a fuck.

A mistreated dog would get more sympathy than all the people killed by our policies.

Truth be told is that not all US foreign policy and not just H. Clinton? It is one clusterfuck after another no matter which administration. And even though our system is currently the least dirty shirt, the main drawback is that because each group only stays for a 4 or 8 years, they act with impunity knowing the shitshow they create will fall in someone elses lap.

I see people mythologize Reagan, but he too was an asshat that created similar problems, selling arms to Iran and backing terrorists in South America. We need to butt the fuck out and work on the mountains of problems we have in our own country.

Who called off the Special Forces in Benghazi?

So what? Hillary has a vagina, and that's good enough for the enlightened American female voter. The Ladies on "The View" said so.

Liberal's picture

Such bullshit. I don't see any of this on the Huffpo or Dailykos. 

So it never happened.

But there is an incredibly troubling story on what it's like to be transgender in South Korea on Huffpo right now.  Go read it.  It's SO important!

And for your soul, a Huffpo editor Chloe Angyal wrote a very moving column on how she decided not to read books by white authors for a year and how conservatives lost their mind.  

So awesome I almost wet myself.  Wait.  That wasn't sexist or anything like that, was it?  God, I hope not.

Truly ground breaking investigative journalism.

US policies may have been a total clusterfuck for decades now, but Clinton took it to a whole new level. She basically put our foreign policy up for sale to the highest bidders, checks payable to the Clinton Foundation.


A genuine treason case, as strictly as the Constitution defines it. Jail is not the appropriate sentence - she belongs in the electric chair, and I say this as someone who doesn't believe in the death penalty (because government can't be trusted with that power).

Electric chair will only make her more powerful.
Stake through the heart.

A silver stake through the heart. LONG SILVER!

OK it is then settled. For Grandma Dracula the silver stake with penetrator tip tungsten carbide.

Probably everything want to burn afterward...

I am curious as to the terrorists of South America you say Reagan supported...IIRC I think it was the Congressional Dem's who were openly flaunting the law by going down and supporting Danny Ortega and his merry band of homicidal socialists...and that was in Central America not South America.


Silky Johnson's picture

South America, look up Operation Condor. You are also correct in saying Central America. That bastard was dirty and backed butchers anywhere North, Central or South, and now they make a saint out of him. Fuck that guy.

froze25's picture

Or we can look at what came out in the Iran Contra congressional hearings. To sum up, Bush Sr. and Olie North ran the operation with the aid of the Governor Clinton by using Arkansas airports behind Reagan's back. CIA Black ops run by Bush and helped by Clinton.

Re: Silky Johnson

How do you feel able to throw in the line 'our system is the least dirty shirt' while criticising it? Don't you realise that on the basis of its heinous crimes, and spectacular inefficiency, the US gov#army are really the world's dirtiest shirt- stained with the blood of the innocent and God-only knows what stains from those in charge?


Silky Johnson's picture

I say least dirty because at least you can get on here and say, "fuck (insert politican's name here)" and not get boiled in oil or have bamboo shoved in your pee hole.

DaveyJones's picture

I can't believe the US would kill people or back people who kill people to prop up the petro dollar

the only thing worse would be spreading smallpox

T.Gracchus's picture

Wouldn't be too sure about that, the way things are going. I am sure the NSA have your ISP and know where you live.

Say too much and one day a bunch of militarised robo-wankers ,dressed as police will come-a calling. But carry on regardless with the least-dirty shirt stuff and see what happens one day.

I mean- who'd ever have thought twenty years ago that the word 'terrorist' would be applied to people who just see things differently (and I mean those who dislike the status quo, not the suicide belt fraternity).

You might want to find out what US foreign policy is as per the Pentagon... here it is from the horses mouth.


BobPaulson's picture

Yes, she should be in prison because she is the same as every other secretary of state of the US which regularly, continuously and universally uses black-ops para militaries to conduct unconstitutional operations not sactioned by Congress. So yeah, if we're throwing people in jail, she's a good start.

I am surprised that Obama is allowing her to be destroyed like this.  What is the long game?  Bernie?  Biden?  There must be a dark horse in this race.

Biden's coming in.  People will confuse him with Sanders.

I usually get him confused with Daffy Duck.

I am in serious doubt that any charges will actually be brought against her.  Come on, when was the last time they pressed charges on a presidential candidate?

"Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot in things racial, we have always been, and we, I believe, continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards,"

ERIC HOLDER  Feb. 18, 2009


Hey Holder and Obama... You didn't know about the ethnic cleansing????...You let this slide????


Bastiat's picture

Holder is an arrogant, corrupt sleazebag.

sschu's picture

Holder has not been AG for months now, but your description is accurate.  Lynch is about the same, maybe not as partisan.  I guess we will see.


Bastiat's picture

I know Lynch is in now and I doubt she is anything but another tool--more passive, perhaps.  But Holder was, is and remains an arrogant, corrupt sleazebag as he was long before infesting that office.  He made his bones in Waco--after that, they knew he could be trusted with anything.

If ethnic cleansing violates your moral code and you allow it to happen then you are a coward.

If ethnic cleansing is part of your plan then you are a Demoncrat.

It will happen. Bitch is toast.

Should have gone into quiet exile after her Benghazi crimes but noooooooo, she wants alot moar people dead before she is finished. Now you see what a murdering psychopath Hillary really is.

I was reading an article here about the FBI going into revolt if Clinton was not indicted,

and it suddenly vanished.....WTF?

I'm with you. I heard an interview with Biden last night where he was saying "Golly goorsh, I won't be presisdent, I mean if the opportunity presented itself, but golly gorsh, that's done with now, don't be silly, but if..."

Joe and Bernie 2016.

Things would get really interesting then...

I swear that would be a relief over Hillary, swear to God. I know it does not matter but just the thought of her in there makes me sick for 70 reasons.

I suspect that Joe will enter the race. 


This is in part why:


She is losing all of her support.
