Pentagon officials were so concerned with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's push in 2011 to back Libyan rebels against Muammar Qaddafi that they opened their own back-channels with Qaddafi to try and prevent the U.S. from entering the civil war, according to a report that cited newly uncovered audio tapes.
Hey, Hillary is not so bad after all. Oh wait! Just a second. What is going on here? ;)
Throwing her under the bus is nice, in Supermax or GITMO - much, much better!
On February 21, 2007, in an interview with Maureen Dowd of the New York Times, Geffen described Hillary Rodham Clinton and Bill Clinton in unflattering terms: "Everybody in politics lies, but they do it with such ease, it's troubling."
Geffen said that Hillary Clinton was "incredibly polarizing" and described Bill Clinton as "reckless" and cast doubt on those who say he has become a different person since leaving office.
Hillary arrives to receive the coveted Gold-plated Knitting Needles statuette: cited as the Democrat candidate "Most Likely to Unravel."
Hillary the warmonger. That will go over well with the Democrats’ nutjob hard-Left base. Just add a couple pictures of her husband being all lovey-dovey with the Bushes and she’s a shoe-in.
You may be right.
I read the story on the earlier Examiner.com post and what struck me was the portrayal of Hillary as the total decision maker re: going to war with Libya.
I don't believe that for a minute.
Hillary is either guilty of extreme stupidity or, IMHO, just following the instructions from her boss. Getting rid of Qaddafi certainly fit into the Obama Grand Plan to turn over the Middle East to the Muslim Brotherhood and other related terrorist organizations. Why would Libya be an exception. It's working in Iraq, Syria, Yeman, Afghanistan and even worked for awhile in Egypt.
Dumping Qaddafi was an Obama initiative. Hillary, now under the bus, was the tool.
And, I have to add: Getting Rid of Hillary has to be in the Obama Strategy To Name Someone Loyal To Him As The Next President Plan.
So this was expected, at least by me. There will be more to come.
She looks like a fat drunk bowler who has a Hawaiian shirt on.
There are layers and layers of bad in this episode. Hillary trying to order around the military? She wasn’t the President. Any REAL President would have gone ballistic on her for trying to usurp his power.
Qadaffi was trying to surrender but she wasn’t going to let that happen? The woman is insane. American lives were at risk. Innocent Libyan lives were at risk. But, she doesn’t care?
It doesn’t add up.
Unless you add in money. She was after Qadaffi’s fortune.
As a senior member of our government, she has involved every American in her criminal behavior.
This is why we got hit at Benghazi. The Libyans were looking for Qadaffi’s fortune. Hillary made a lot of money killing Qadaffi.
So did Nobel Peace Price recipient----Obama.
When peace-loving anti-war idealogues Obama and Hillary staged (gasp) military attacks on Libya, they got access to the Bank of Libya......no cash there---just solid gold bars.
Six months later, in April 2012, Hillary Clinton received the "Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service." The following month she received the "Champions for Change Award for Leadership," and, in May 2013, the inaugural "Warren Christopher Public Service Award."
This could well be used against her. Hillary the war monger, the person mainly responsible for the chaos in Libya and its result, the Benghazi attack.
Maybe it was these back channel contacts that enabled the military to evacuae Benghazi- according to the report on Benghazi it was Qadaffi’s former officials who helped arrange the evacuation, not islamist Clinton’s allies in the wobbly half terrorist government.
If so, maybe the spooks were running their own deal there to counter this admin’s stupidity and Hillary or Obama was trying to shut it down because it conflicted with their islamist agenda.
