  • Trump-Russia and Clinton-Libya: A Story of 2 Probes and the FBI

    Records recently posted online by the FBI indicate that it did little to investigate allegations from private sources connected to Republicans about a scheme in which associates of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to exploit their connection to her to profit from the turmoil in Libya in 2011. The FBI received the documents in June 2016, around the same time it launched an exhaustive, three-year investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia based, in part, on information from private sources connected to Democrats that in the main would prove to be false – the Steele dossier. ...

  • Gen. Mike Flynn: Why Hillary's record on Libya is even worse than you think

    Fox News ^ | 6 Oct, 2016 | Michael Flynn
    But new evidence -- and a review of the public record -- reveals that Hillary Clinton’s actions in Libya were not just disastrous policy, but a violation of U.S. anti-terrorism law. A recent report to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the British House of Commons concluded that Western intervention in Libya was based on "inaccurate intelligence" and "erroneous assumptions." Advocates failed to recognize that “the threat to civilians was overstated and that the rebels included a significant Islamist element," and the failure to plan for a post-Qaddafi Libya led to the "growth of ISIL" in North Africa. However, “inaccurate intelligence”...
  • Turi: Half the Weapons Went to Libya, the Other Half 2 Syrian Enemies of USA

    The DOJ dropped charges against shadowy American arms dealer Marc Turi, as his legal defense threatened to unmask evidence of secret 2011 arms diversions by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration. Turi's trial would have happened around the time of the American Presidential election in November, next month. Turi, whose company operates out of Las Vegas, told Fox News of his belief that half his weapons went to Libyan rebels and the other half went to Syrian enemies of the United States. Turi's arms export license was to Qatar, not Libya. Turi's legal defence is that...
  • Obama’s Deputies Drop Criminal Charges Against Hillary Clinton-Linked Arms Dealer in Libya

    President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice has dropped charges against a man who sold weapons which he claimed were supposed to arm the rebels in Libya during Hillary Clinton’s aggressive intervention in that volatile Middle Eastern country. Arms dealer Marc Turi’s lawyers signed the deal to avoid an illegal arms dealing trial, which could have further blown the lid off the U.S. government’s alleged weapons-running operation. Many of the weapons, experts say, were diverted to jihadist insurgents in the Middle East during the so-called “Arab Spring” uprisings.
  • Parliament members: Hillary is 'Butcher of Libya'

    WND ^ | Jerome Corsi
    Three members of the Libyan parliament representing tribes that were brutally attacked by Islamic militia both during and after the coup that ousted Moammar Gadhafi charge Hillary Clinton is the “Butcher of Libya.” The three lawmakers spoke to WND from Libya in a video conference call. “Libyans accuse that Hillary and her group are behind the terrorist groups in Libya,” said Jaballah Al-Shibani of the now-homeless Tawergha tribe. He was joined on the call by Saleh Fhema of Moammar Gadhafi’s hometown of Sirte and Hassan Zarga, a member of the Hassuni tribe in central Libya. “Hillary is behind all the...

    Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, her allies, and others have declared Donald Trump unfit for the presidency because of his lack of national security credentials. American voters should carefully look through that smokescreen to see the global damage resulting from President Barack Obama and Secretary Clinton’s “smart” foreign policies, and how she behaved in office before casting their presidential ballots.

    When Hillary Clinton is asked about her plan to invade Libya while she was secretary of state, she often passes the buck to President Obama, saying he ultimately had to make the final decision. But, new emails from WikiLeaks’ hack into Clinton’s private email server show she openly bragged about having a “critical voice” in the invasion of Libya, which ultimately led to the rise of the Islamic State and the Syrian refugee crisis.

    WikiLeaks Leaked Email: Hillary Supplied Cash, Weapons & Tanks to Al-Qaeda to Kill Gaddafi & Ship Weapons for Terror A confidential intelligence email obtained by True Pundit provides proof that President Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton created a secret and illegal alliance between the United States and a faction of the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization to ultimately assassinate Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi and distribute weapons to Middle Eastern terror groups, intelligence sources confirm. The March 2011 email, sent to Clinton’s private email server from intelligence consultant and long-time confidant Sidney Blumenthal, provides devastating overt and covert revelations of how...

    The great investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, in two previous articles in the London Review of Books ("Whose Sarin?" and "The Red Line and the Rat Line") has reported that the Obama Administration falsely blamed the government of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for the sarin gas attack that Obama was trying to use as an excuse to invade Syria; and Hersh pointed to a report from British intelligence saying that the sarin that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles. Hersh also said that a secret agreement in 2012 was reached between the Obama Administration and the leaders of Turkey, Saudi Arabia,...

    Boston Globe ^ | April 17, 2016 | Jeff Jacoby,
    Five years ago, President Obama hailed the military campaign in Libya that toppled Moammar Khadafy as one of the foreign policy triumphs of his presidency. Today he calls Libya his worst mistake. But though he may have changed his grade from an A to an F, his commitment to “leading from behind” — a euphemism for American passivity and abdication — hasn’t budged. On the day Khadafy was killed, in October 2011, Obama took a victory lap. “Our brave pilots have flown in Libya’s skies, our sailors have provided support off Libya’s shores, and our leadership at NATO has helped...

    Hillary Clinton said at the MSNBC Democratic town hall Monday night that “we didn’t lose a single person” in Libya, despite the fact that four Americans died in Benghazi while she was secretary of state. Clinton was defending the Libyan state and what the Obama administration has billed as one of its greatest foreign policy successes. But Clinton was also among the first to point out there’s still much more work to do in the North African country. “Is Libya perfect? It isn’t,” Clinton explained. “But did they have two elections that were fair where they voted for moderates? Yes...

    Obama points finger at Britain, France over Libya chaos Published March 11, 2016 FoxNews.com President Barack Obama has strongly criticized the leaders of Great Britain and France for their policy toward Libya after the 2011 overthrow of dictator Muammar Qaddafi, saying that he was mistaken to believe the U.S.' European allies would be "more invested in the follow-up" to Qaddafi's fall. Obama made the remarks in an interview with The Atlantic magazine. The criticisms of British Prime Minister David Cameron, in particular, are some of the strongest of a sitting U.K. leader by a sitting president. In the interview, Obama...

    New York Times ^ | 27 February 2016 | Jo Becker and Scott Shane
    From the earliest days of the Libya debate, Mrs. Clinton was a diligent student and unrelenting inquisitor, absorbing fat briefing books, inviting dissenting views from subordinates, studying foreign counterparts to learn how to win them over. She was a pragmatist, willing to improvise — to try the bank-shot solution. But above all, in the view of many who have watched her up close, her record on Libya illustrates how, facing a national-security or foreign-policy quandary, she was inclined to act — in marked contrast to Mr. Obama’s more reticent approach. Anne-Marie Slaughter, her director of policy planning at the State...

    The messages from Washington ahead of Vice President Joe Biden's arrival in Israel next week show President Barack Obama's hostile policies toward Israel will maintained until he leaves office. In recent weeks, the administration has warned various government ministers that any construction of housing for Jews in Jerusalem will be viewed with hostility by the administration. In contrast, the administration is pressuring Israel to permit construction of homes for Arabs in its capital city and harshly opposes all moves by the government to destroy illegal construction in Arab neighborhoods and in Judea and Samaria. In other words, it is the...

    The New York Times ^ | 28 Feb 2016 | JO BECKER and SCOTT SHANE
    The president was wary. The secretary of state was persuasive. But the ouster of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi left Libya a failed state and a terrorist haven. By the time Mahmoud Jibril cleared customs at Le Bourget airport and sped into Paris, the American secretary of state had been waiting for hours. But this was not a meeting Hillary Clinton could cancel. Their encounter could decide whether America was again going to war. In the throes of the Arab Spring, Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi was facing a furious revolt by Libyans determined to end his quixotic 42-year rule. The dictator’s forces were...

    During Thursday night's debate in Houston, Texas, Donald Trump denied having ever supported the Obama administration's efforts to remove Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi from power. The record on this, however, is clear. In the run-up to what would be a massive foreign policy debacle (with Hillary Clinton as its chief architect), the Republican frontrunner vocally supported American intervention to topple the dictator. From the debate: ...

    A known Islamic terror suspect was placed in charge of Hillary Clinton's local security detail during a trip by the US Secretary of State to Libya, Daily Mail Online can reveal. The shocking security blunder occurred in October 2011 when Clinton made an unannounced visit to Libya following the toppling of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. Ironically the Secretary of State's trip was shrouded in secrecy due to security concerns. The trip was intended as a triumphant tour to show Mrs Clinton's support for the Libyan people and build diplomatic ties at a torrid time. During her visit fierce fighting erupted in...

    On New Year's Eve, the State Department released 3,000 new Hillary Clinton emails from her tenure as secretary of state. While much of the corporate media dove into investigating pointless gossip, Brad Hoff at the Levant Report decided to look for more clues into understanding the epic failure that was the 2011 war on Libya by the US and NATO. What Hoff discovered in the emails was Secretary Clinton being briefed by a trusted advisor, Sidney Blumenthal, on events in Libya where Clinton's public statements appear to contradict her private understanding. The issues range from the early presence of special...

    Colonel Muammar Gaddafi issued a 'prophetic' warning to Tony Blair that jihadists would attack Europe if his regime was allowed to collapse, phone conversations reveal. Gaddafi's dire prediction was made in two desperate telephone calls with Mr Blair on February 25, 2011 - as civil war was engulfing Libya. In the first call at 11.15am, Gaddafi said: "They [jihadists] want to control the Mediterranean and then they will attack Europe." snip In the call, lasting half an hour, Gaddafi insisted he was trying to defend Libya from al-Qaeda fighters. The presence of al-Qaedas would later be superceded by the rise...
