U.S. recognizes rebels as legitimate government of Libya
haaretz ^ | 7/15/11 | Reuters

Recognition by U.S. and other Western nations could unlock billions of dollars in frozen Libyan funds

Rebel leaders won recognition as the legitimate government of Libya from the United States and other world powers on Friday in a major boost to the rebels' faltering campaign to oust Muammer Gadhafi.

Western nations said they also planned to increase the military pressure on Gadhafi's forces to press him to give up power after 41 years at the head of the North African state.

Recognition of the rebels, announced by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a meeting in Turkey of the international contact group on Libya, is an important diplomatic step which could unlock billions of dollars in frozen Libyan funds.

Absolutely astounding that America is helping it’s own enemies in the War of islam Against American and Western Civilization.

They will soon try to establish a beachhead in Israel - look out, folks, the invasion is underway.

The USA just recognozed a Libya Government controlled by Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

So much for all the lives we sacrificed in Iraq.

I detest Obama with a passion. May he be soon yanked off the public stage and then live in ignominy...or NOT.

I continue too root for former US ally, Gadhafi.At least he killed Muslim Brotherhood where he found them, and continues to do so.

Rebels a legitimate government??? They are really reaching here. Trying to get Ghadaffi’s money into the hands of terrorists??? or maybe the terrorist of their choice: out of terrorist Ghadaffi’s hands into another.

This sounds to me like an incredibly horrible idea. . . which is just about standard for that bunch in DC right now.

This Lybian thing (whatever it is) is the weirdest, the strangest, foreign policy coup de e’tat that I have ever witnessed.

I still don’t know who we are supporting or who we are killing or why??

And once we find out who is in charge, we can tell them!

Astounding. Not only are we now acting as mercenaries for Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, we even get to pay to do it.

The rebels were running out of everything, as told by their defacto leader. Fuel, food, ammunition, absolutely everything. Now, we can give them money, supposed frozen Libyan funds(i’d like proof) so they can buy everything they need. This administration is so unbelievably corrupt, it is horrifying. Any and everyone that voted for that moron should throw themselves in front of a bus.

WTF... I just can’t deal with this anymore.

Now we are aligned with and assisting Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. I apologize for my swearing, but I just don’t know the words to express how I see this junk anymore.

Obama and the democrats have stolen a once great country... they have truly ruined her.

Just make him and his democrats go away, I pray.

Another day, another outrage. Actually, there were several outrages today. Where to start?

I feel like I’m living through a permanent nightmare.

It's not surprise though. 0bama is a terrorist.

0bama Arms Mexican Drug Cartels and MS13 in Honduras

Over 1,400 ATF-walked guns are still “walking” around Mexico. At least another 200 “walked” into Honduras. When will the next one show up at a murder scene and where?

Gunwalker: Smoking Gun Email?

An internal ATF email seems to support the assertion that Fast and Furious was a PR stunt for gun control.

It looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck. Its not an effing platypus.

Yesiree Tiger. Obama is indeed a liberal fascist, something we have been yelling out here on FR for over 3 years, after we saw his “work” in Kenya in 2006/2007 which resulted in 7000 genocidal deaths, and now add to those the unecessarry deaths in Libya from Obama’s little ideological venture there to support the Muslim Brotherhood.Badaboom!

Wake up AMERICA!

If he isn’t stopped soon he will end up with more blood on his hands than Mao did. The comparative numbers are small now but that can explode in a heart beat.

Yes nightmares, several times a day, day after day, month after month and now year after year.

I find it mentally exhausting. Every day I wonder how much more I can take and the next day we are forced to take even more.

This nightmare has forced me to think about things I would have never before even dreamed of.

With a very sad and heavy heart, I long for the return of my country.

The fix is tio impeach Obama,drive him to over reach and then impeach him, and that way the truth about who Obnama is will get out to the piblic, past the MSM construct he has built.

Obama will trty to get his “budget” by and end run around Congress using the 14th amendment power, to avoid “default” An entirely artificially caused crisis.

Yes, it’s like this everyday now.
I flipped when I heard this, because I have said all along Qaddafi will not budge. His government is strong and the “rebels” are weak.
This Arab Spring stuff overestimates itself and its capabilities.
However, we are supposed to have checks and balances in our govt to stop usama and the evil witch from aiding and abetting. It’s long past impeachment time, imo.

In the meantime, what about Syria???

They simply ignore them. And nobody - well, not the press, and not the GOP - ever says anything about it. Who knew installing a dictatorship would be this easy?

Considering that the “rebels” have been identified as Al-qaeda operatives .. this does not surprise me at all.

What does surprise me is that even Drudge isn’t covering the connections.
