FRONTPAGE MAGAZINE — Obama and Hillary began the mess in Libya with their illegal war based on lies about genocide. As a result, Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS control parts of the country. And Obama doesn’t want the blame coming back to him so he has a firm policy of trying to pretend that nothing is wrong.
Despite the growing threat from the self-proclaimed Islamic State in Libya, the Obama administration has turned down a U.S. military plan for an assault on ISIS’s regional hub there, three defense officials told The Daily Beast.
Then again, Obama also refuses to take out the ISIS main headquarters. So at least he’s consistent.
In recent weeks, the U.S. military—led by its Africa and Special Operations Commands—have pushed for more airstrikes and the deployment of elite troops, particularly in the city of Sirte. The hometown of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, the city is now under ISIS control and serving as a regional epicenter for the terror group.
Because, possibly, removing Gaddafi from power was not the best idea Obama and Hillary ever had.
