"We are with Haftar," Special Forces Commander Wanis Bukhamada told Reuters in the eastern city of Benghazi. On live television he had earlier announced his forces would join "Operation Dignity", as Haftar calls his campaign.

Hussein obamar and his muslim brotherhood sure screw those people. The average person in Libya is much worse off after obamar and Hillary overthrew their government.
Sadly, the punk is screwing us over here too.
I guess they weren’t so “special” after all.
Or too special.
Maybe Haftar isgood news,
We will able to tell after the Obamabastard announces if he is supporting him or not. If he isn’t getting Barack’s endorsement, we KNOW he is a good guy.
Sad, isn’t it? A once great world power, a voice for freedom everywhere, reduced to the plaything of a Marxist moron.
As detestable as Qaddafi was, he had the terrorists under control.
Both Obama and Hilary need to get a lot more stick for their disastrous policy in Libya. The press is too servile to mention it.
