Hillary Clinton is an unrepentant, evil warmonger who laughs at the murders she sanctioned.
No matter what you thought of Muammar al-Qaddafi, Hillary Clinton’s wicked, evil laugh at her sanctioned murder of him and his leaders should send chills up the spine of any decent, humane person. Remember she took credit for the U.S. intervention in Libya, this murder of Muammar al-Qaddafi.
Hillary Clinton took credit for the U.S. intervention in Libya, but she will never take the blame. As a detailed, damning new account in The New York Times shows, the former secretary of state was indeed instrumental in pushing President Obama to pick sides in Libya’s civil war by bombing longtime dictator Muammar al-Qaddafi’s forces and arming his rebel opponents. But as the Times also shows, her warmongering is nothing to be proud of, although she bragged about it in 2011 and continues to portray its results as a paradigmatic example of “smart power.”
“Given the huge practical and moral risks of getting involved in a civil war 5,000 miles away, you’d think the standard of proof would be a little bit stronger than a preponderance of the evidence, especially since Qaddafi clearly posed no threat to the United States. He was not a threat to us anywhere. He was a threat to his own people, and that was about it. That really should have been the end of the analysis, unless you think the Defense Department’s role extends beyond defense.” Robert M. Gates, the secretary of defense at the time
Here is how the Times sums up the consequences of Clinton’s desire to be “caught trying” in Libya:
The consequences would be more far-reaching than anyone imagined, leaving Libya a failed state and a terrorist haven…
Libya, with a population smaller than that of Tennessee, poses an outsize security threat to the region and beyond, calling into question whether the intervention prevented a humanitarian catastrophe or merely helped create one of a different kind.
The looting of Colonel Qaddafi’s vast weapons arsenals during the intervention has fed the Syrian civil war, empowered terrorist and criminal groups from Nigeria to Sinai, and destabilized Mali, where Islamist militants stormed a Radisson hotel in November and killed 20 people.
A growing trade in humans has sent a quarter-million refugees north across the Mediterranean, with hundreds drowning en route. A civil war in Libya has left the country with two rival governments, cities in ruins and more than 4,000 dead.
Amid that fighting, the Islamic State has built its most important outpost on the Libyan shore, a redoubt to fall back upon as it is bombed in Syria and Iraq. With the Pentagon saying the Islamic State’s fast-growing force now numbers between 5,000 and 6,500 fighters, some of Mr. Obama’s top national security aides are now pressing for a second American military intervention in Libya.
