It is difficult to verify the situation in Libya, given that the country is too dangerous to enter. However, I believe this story from the Beirut paper, Daily Star, is generally accurate. Another triumph for Obama's foreign policy - Libya in chaos.

The craziest kind of islamic radicals are threatening to overrun three formerly stable middle east capitals... heads are rolling in every direction.

Will anyone in the MSM even suggest that this possibly could be a result of 'mishandling' opt foreign policy by our president and his state dept?

Soon the powerful but destitute ruler of Egypt will respond to the pleas of the oil rich Libyans to save them from the Islamists. Kind of works out well.

You know how Obama keeps referring to ISIS as ISIL? Maybe he’s thinking “Islamic State in Libya”, which would be consistent with his weapons games in Benghazi that wound up with four dead.

Col. Daffy wasn’t a threat to us. He opened up his weapons arsenal for inspections. Obama wanted his muzzie brotherhood thugs to take control of Libya. They did and they do about as good a job running government has Hussein Obama does.

Hussein Obama backed the muzzie brotherhood in Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, (he wanted to in Syria before Putin made Obama look like an incompetent clown), and it’s only a matter of time before he does elsewhere. The “moderate” brotherhood are thugs.

Yes, we would be a lot better off with Col. Daffy still there. So would the people of Libya.

The MB is in the white house so I suppose we have the outcome from all the carnage really shouldn’t be a surprise.

zero et. al should be tried for treason. I’d think that most of western civilized nations would breathe a sigh of relief if we finally did what needs doing.

Gaddafi was absolutely no threat to us or the region. The citizens of Libya were living in a fairly prosperous nation.

There was absolutely no reason to overthrow the Libyan government. And it wouldn’t have happened without obama.

I firmly believe that the muslim brotherhood has the ear of the obama White House more than do Christian organizations.

I don’t know if we can take two more years of the treasonous bastard. We really need to take the senate out of this evil jerk’s hands.
