We Are Back In Libya, Raising the Bar For Incompetance

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 5, 2016

Apparently we haven’t done enough to this poor country.  After Hillary Clinton turned Libya from a relatively stable though corrupt country to  the world headquarters for ISIS, pentagon marionette Obama is going to make it better.  I am sure Libya’s bad luck will hold.

See here to see why.

Here is a funny/sad tidbit from the article describing some of what Hillary has wrought.

Take a look at what we’re getting ourselves into: with no less than three governments, lawless Libya is a perfect example of Ronald Reagan’s famous dictum that “government is the problem, not the solution.” Yes, that’s right, the former domain of Ghaddafi has three rival “governments.” Go ahead and count ‘em:

  1. The General National Congress (GNC), headquartered in Tripoli, is controlled by Islamist militias and backed by Turkey, Qatar, and Sudan.
  2. The Council of Deputies, located in Tobruk, is basically the instrument of Gen. Khalifa Hiftar, a known CIA asset who used to live a few miles from the Agency’s headquarters.
  3. The UN-appointed “government of national unity,” which was never elected by anyone and had to be shipped into the country by boat because the Tripoli authorities wouldn’t let their plane land.

Be seeing you
