Heckuva job, Hillary.
I wonder if Ambassador Smith got this message.
Good thing Hillary improved Libya SO MUCH, right?
Oh, sure, she’s a GENIUS!
Libya - really - I thought Obama fixed all that by giving those nice rebels arms!
Who would still be there? I mean seriously.
Well, the communique is out; question now is how badly are the Dem’s going to F this up for us long term. Zero has been doing a bang up job destabilizing countries for AQ use and with the last couple SOS’, it seems that loss of life is assured; decidedly against American citizens.
Who in their right mind would still voluntarily be there? Maybe we’re talking about wanna-be insurgents. If there are archeologists or explorers, then, game over, get the hell out. Otherwise, when you get captured and start sending over forced confessions read from cue cards, do not expect America to magically appear and save you from your folly.
I think Hillary should be forced to set up her campaign headquarters in Libya.
One and a half years too late.
The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against all travel to Libya and recommends that U.S. citizens currently in Libya depart immediately. Due to security concerns, the Department of State has limited staffing at Embassy Tripoli and is only able to offer very limited emergency services to U.S. citizens in Libya. This Travel Warning supersedes the Travel Warning issued on December 12, 2013.
The security situation in Libya remains unpredictable and unstable. The Libyan government has not been able to adequately build its military and police forces and improve security following the 2011 revolution. Many military-grade weapons remain in the hands of private individuals, including antiaircraft weapons that may be used against civilian aviation. Crime levels remain high in many parts of the country. In addition to the threat of crime, various groups have called for attacks against U.S. citizens and U.S. interests in Libya. Extremist groups in Libya have made several specific threats this year against U.S. government officials, citizens, and interests in Libya. Because of the presumption that foreigners, especially U.S. citizens, in Libya may be associated with the U.S. government or U.S. NGOs, travelers should be aware that they may be targeted for kidnapping, violent attacks, or death. U.S. citizens currently in Libya should exercise extreme caution and depart immediately. ...
You tube MUST be banned.../sarc
Thank you for posting this.
juan mccain and his girlfriend linda graham must be real happy.
Suddenly they CARE about Americans in Libya???
Same warning issued for Detroit.
There are still US citizens in Libya???
best leave; they know none will rescue them
Arab Spring Part II ?
Who can Obunga blame this on? YouTube? Yahoo? AOL ? Bush?
I would put the Libya murders in the Obama column:, Arab Spring, Hope & Change, LEAVING ON A JET PLANE and all that ChitObama.
Must be a new youtube video out...
if not that, then just trying to ensure less witnesses to more arms smuggling to Christian/Jew killers.
The USS Bataan was to be in the area “in a matter of days,” said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, on Tuesday.
Does this include Bengahzi?
I don't have a lot of faith in these warnings, much of the time. I live in Davao City, on the Island of Minanao, in the Philippines. We are sent many warnings about travel to this Island, but what they fail to mention is that Davao is one of the safest places on EARTH. You have a much more dangerous situation in Los Angeles, NYC, Philly, or Detroit.
BUT, we are talking about an entire country of CRAZIES, who live their life bowing to Satan five times a day and think nothing of killing someone who doesn't agree!!
Active Duty ping.
Why, is another youtube video coming out? /s
Who would still be there? I mean seriously.
If you were leaving you’d be sweating every second you were within manpad range... Thanks Hillary! Thanks el Douche’!
Well...I guess that the Obama/Hillary/Kerry troika have completed the “export” of Khadafy’s weapons to this Islamist friends in Syria. Now it’s time for the traitors to try to cover their tracks.
Arab Spring Part II ?
I’m pretty sure this is Arab Spring III and Recovery Summer VI ,, but I may be wrong ,, this whole thing has me plumb tuckered out.
Where’s the calm, reasoned statement from John F’n Skerry. You know, the POS SOS that served in Viet Nam?
King Obama and his cabal have certainly handled Libya in a stellar fashion, haven’t they?
My first thought too, you’d have to be some kind of special to still want to be there.
I guess the gun running to Syria failed. Maybe they can be airlifted from Benghazi. Oh wait...
I wish they would do the same thing with Mexico. I would never go to either one, or many other garden spots around the world.
Let me add Somalia, North Korea, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Central America, Africa, Russia, Central Asia, The Indian subcontinent, Eastern Europe, the Arab Peninsula, and Detroit to this list.
Why? Is someone about to post a video on YouTube?
I heard it was because of a video....
Hilliary should know. She has unfettered access to youtube and the makings of jihad.
Why would they suddenly pretend to care about “Americans” elsewhere in the world?
My guess: Somebody finally stepped up to the plate and has risked his life to tell the explosive truth about what the elected and appointed USA government idiots were actually doing in that region...
Hint-Nobody is going to be happy,happy, happy about it.
You mean there were Americans stupid enough to even be in Libya? The religion of peace must be acting up again.
Susan Rice and Samantha Power are the 2 geniuses responsible for this mess.
He listens to Rice because she was a good basketball player and Power because she went to Harvard and runs around screaming “Genocide” every 2 minutes.
Preparing to Wag the Dog. Take the heat off recent bad press. Get Americans to rally around the troops. Probably bomb an aspirin factory or two.
Libyan civil war
As the 2011 Libyan civil war progressed, Rice made clear that the United States and the international community saw only one choice for Gaddafi and his aides: step down from power or face significant consequences. Rice offered some of the toughest rhetoric toward Gaddafi, blasting his denials of atrocities against his own citizens as frankly, delusional.
Several UN diplomats said that in a closed door meeting on April 28, Rices claims of Gaddafis atrocities included the issuance of Viagra to loyalists in order to further terrorize the population with sexual violence. Together with National Security Council figure Samantha Power, who already supported military intervention, and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who came to support it, the three overcame internal opposition from Defense Secretary Robert Gates, security adviser Thomas Donilon, and counterterrorism adviser John Brennan, to have the administration advance a UN proposal to impose a no-fly zone over Libya and authorize other military actions as necessary.
On March 17, 2011, the UK, France and Lebanon joined Rice to vote for United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973 while Brazil, Germany, and India joined permanent Security Council members China and Russia in abstaining. Rice and Clinton played major roles in gaining approval for the resolution. Clinton said that same day that establishing a no-fly zone over Libya would require the bombing of air defenses. Rice said that we are interested in a broad range of actions that will effectively protect civilians and increase the pressure on the Gaddafi regime to halt the killing and to allow the Libyan people to express themselves in their aspirations for the future freely and peacefully.
In January 2012 after the Russian and Chinese veto of another Security Council resolution calling on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down, Rice strongly condemned both countries, saying, They put a stake in the heart of efforts to resolve this conflict peacefully, adding that we the United States are standing with the people of Syria. Russia and China are obviously with Assad. In her words, the United States is disgusted that a couple of members of this Council continue to prevent us from fulfilling our sole purpose.
Some Security Council diplomats took issue with Rices negotiating style, calling it rude and overly blunt. According to David Rothkopf of Foreign Policy magazine, Rice is known for her abrasiveness but has the asset of a close relationship with the U.S. president. Human rights activists took issue with Rice and U.S. foreign policy generally in 2012 for working against U.N. statements that criticized Rwanda for supporting a rebel group in Congo known for committing atrocities.[
It goes without saying this is all about Hillary 2016.
Hillary gave the AlQaeda WEAPONS!!!! to beat Qadaffi— THAT IS REASON!!
