    "We came, we saw, he died," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joked on a CBS interview when told about the death of Libyan Dictator Muammar Qaddafi on October 20, 2011. Prior to the overthrow of the Gaddafi government, Muslim women in Libya were the beneficiaries of gender sensitive policies encouraging advanced education and entrepreneurism through small business loans. These western-focused policies were created to give Libyan women equal access to economic resources, such as finance and land ownership.
  • The Tough Choices of Overseas Intervention

    The United States has targeted a lot of rogues and their regimes in recent decades: Muammar Gadhafi, Saddam Hussein, Slobodan Milosevic, Mohamed Farrah Aidid, Manuel Noriega and the Taliban. As a general rule over the last 100 years, any time the U.S. has bombed or intervened and then abruptly left the targeted country, chaos has followed. But when America has followed up its use of force with unpopular peacekeeping, sometimes American interventions have led to something better. The belated entry of the United States into World War I saved the sinking Allied cause in 1917. Yet after the November 1918...

    Could explain why murdered ambassador was in attacked facility TEL AVIV – Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., may have dropped a bombshell in an interview with Fox News in which he stated that murdered U.S Ambassador Christopher Stevens was in Benghazi to keep weapons caches from falling into the hands of terrorists. Until now, no official explanation for Stevens deployment to Libya has acknowledged any such activity. Stevens reportedly died from smoke inhalation as a result of the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks on the U.S. special mission and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya. The official State Department probe into the Benghazi...

    SADDAM HUSSEIN'S REGIME PROVIDED FINANCIAL support to Abu Sayyaf, the al Qaeda-linked jihadist group founded by Osama bin Laden's brother-in-law in the Philippines in the late 1990s, according to documents captured in postwar Iraq. An eight-page fax dated June 6, 2001, and sent from the Iraqi ambassador in Manila to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad, provides an update on Abu Sayyaf kidnappings and indicates that the Iraqi regime was providing the group with money to purchase weapons. The Iraqi regime suspended its support--temporarily, it seems--after high-profile kidnappings, including of Americans, focused international attention on the terrorist group. The...

    TRIPOLI, 2 September — Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi announced yesterday that his country’s prisons were free of political detainees except for members of Osama Bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda network. “As from the date of this anniversary, Libyan prisons will be empty, with the exception of a group of heretics believed to have links with what is known as Al-Qaeda and the Taleban,” Qaddafi said. “So with the exception of the heretics, the prison will be emptied,” he said in a televised address yesterday marking the 33rd anniversary of the revolution that brought him to power. The Al-Qaeda suspects “were in Afghanistan...

    Following a series of meetings with Libyan officials that has intensified in recent months, the State Department is close to relegitimizing Muammar Qaddafi, according to senior administration officials and other sources close to the talks. While State officially claims that its actions are in accordance with the U.N. Security Council resolution relating to the Pam Am Flight 103 bombing, it is nonetheless baffling that State should embrace a man who is an enthusiastic sponsor of terrorism, who has both known terrorists and weapons of mass destruction within his country's borders, and who is actively developing nuclear weapons. Assistant Secretary of...
