Yes, Actually Hillary Clinton Does Own The Libyan War…

A recent article at Real Clear Politics hits on one of the key aspects of the Benghazi fiasco that recent media are hell-bent on hiding; Hillary Clinton, not President Obama, is actually the person responsible for the crisis in Libya.

Watching the House Select Committee on Benghazi hearings, it was interesting to note how no-one really went ‘there’ to give Clinton full ownership of the 2011 Libyan Intervention.  So let’s review Clinton’s ownership.

Sarkosy with Clinton - whatz weeth you americanz nowIt’s as if both congress and the media have forgotten those ridiculous 19-days in 2011 when Hillary was flying back-and-forth to meet with French Prime-Minister Sarkozy and plan their endeavors.

In the U.S. presidential adviser Samantha Power was  bending Obama’s ear with declarations of a “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P) the Eastern Libyan citizens from the boogie man narrative assigned to Gadaffi.

Meanwhile in New York,  U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice was answering calls from her British and French counterparts who were similarly selling an interventionist message.  Back in the White House, President Obama was reluctant to engage.  It was Secretary Clinton working overtime to bring the President into the same line of thinking as herself.

In a moment of rare bi-partisanship many Democrats and Republicans were aligned with the White House in not wanting to intervene in Libya.  Of course, there was John McCain and Lindsey Graham who joined with Team Clinton to bomb yet another nation into civil war.  But too his initial credit, Obama was reluctant.

February 2011 France’s Sarkozy almost immediately began calling for the ouster of Kaddaffi and requesting Western nations to get involved to insure Kaddaffi fell. Sarkozy was quite passionate about it – which struck many observers as odd because he was ‘so far out’ ahead of any nation on this position.

However, unlike Egypt, as the fighting intensified in February 2011 President Obama was curiously silent around Libya.

This initial non-reaction was played by the adoring U.S. media as Obama being calm under pressure. However, this calm was beset by the reality of what was actually reported to be taking place on the ground in Libya. The word “slaughter” was in almost every article.

Meanwhile President Obama seemed unfazed, and strangely quiet. So much so that Sarkozy was demanding President Obama say something, anything. This U.S. silence went on for over two full weeks until eventually the media headlines began to question the Obama strategy, or, well actually, the lack thereof.

This culminated in a weekend around February 24, 25 and 26th, 2011, when headlines began to read that Kaddaffi “strafes” while Obama “golfs”. and astoundingly enough the Libyan Ambassador to the U.S. went on national television and begged for Obama to do something, ANYTHING.

Then a seemingly innocuous event transpired which actually summarized the lack of U.S. leadership quite well. This became the origin of the “leading from behind” sentiment.

It is important to understand that under President Obama the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations is actually a cabinet level position.

In 2011 Ambassador Susan Rice and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, were essentially equal peers.

power-rice-rodham-clinton-2Ambassador Rice representing Obama to the U.N. in New York, and Secretary Clinton representing Obama to nations while “on-the-road” so to speak. Under the leadership structure of Obama’s cabinet both held equal and equivocal rank.

During that critical February weekend when the world was desperately demanding some form of action around the civil war in Libya, Sarkozy was having visible fits on EU television and trying to put together a European coalition.

In direct response to Sarkozy’s pleas the U.N. announced an emergency Security Council meeting of the six prominent nations to determine what, if any, action could be taken to stop what was described as the “pending slaughter in Libya”.

However, instead of attending that emergency U.N. Security Council meeting February 25th, 2011, Ambassador Rice went to South Africa to attend a global warming summit where they were discussing the danger of bovine flatulence (cow farts) as it relates to harming the environment.

Back in Washington DC the optics were even worse.

After ignoring cries for opinion, let alone involvement, and with Ambassador Rice blowing off the U.N. Security council meeting, and against the backdrop of media beginning to sense a detached president more interested in golf than Libya, the whole optical mess exploded.

Because on that very night when the U.N. Security Council met, a detached President Obama and his wife Michelle held a Motown Review Concert in the East Room of the White House.

Talk about a bad optic – You can’t make this stuff up !!

By itself the White House Motown Review Party seemed a bit detached, but against the backdrop of Hillary proclaiming hundreds of women and children are being strafed in the streets, the optic was horrendous.

The contrast was so bold, and so stark, and happened so fast, and was seen by Europe and the United Nations as, well, unfathomable. The proverbial water-carrying media couldn’t ignore it if they wanted to.

Recognizing what was unfolding a rapid White House team scrambled with a crisis response…..

Obama - One Flew Over the Cuckoo's NestAgainst two weeks of silence in February 2011, and a fawning U.S. media beginning to doubt their own beliefs in the administration, the White House begins damage control for their earlier detachment.

When Susan Rice skipped a Feb 25, 2011 emergency weekend U.N. Security Council meeting, the Obama administration was compromised in their ability to influence any real outcome in Libya.

Without the U.S. seated at the policy table the U.N. made two strategic resolutions/decisions which were brutally short-sighted.

The first mistake was a resolution banning the sale or transfer of arms or weaponry into Libya during the civil war. On it’s face the ban might sound like a generally good idea; however, in reality it was exceptionally self-defeating. After all, it banned all weapons from entering Libya, including weapons for the opposition – which most thought would be needed for the “rebels” to defend themselves.

The second mistake was criminal charges brought about by the ICC (International Criminal Court) against the Kaddaffi regime. Nothing tells a dictator to double down on his position like telling him you as soon as this is over we will lock you and your family up for life.

Essentially those charges filed by the ICC solidified the certainty that Kaddaffi would never compromise. He was forced into a singular position – either he would win the civil war, or he would die trying. Losing the war would mean death or a life in prison – one of these was now certain.  What did Kaddaffi have to lose by fighting?

This Security Council resolution highlights the emotional short-sighted outcome of most U.N. determinations. However, historically the U.S. has tempered logic to the 6 nation table of stupidity. But not this time. This time, at the specific direction of President Obama and his policy team, the U.S. did not even participate.

Obama and Hillary - The French Foreign LegionHowever, while the White House may have been annoyingly quiet, Hillary Clinton certainly was not.

This lack of synergy led to multiple instances where Clinton’s publicly voiced opinion ran exactly opposite to the Obama administration’s position she was supposedly representing.

The international optic was a completely out of sync with the White House and State Department.

Sometimes embarrassingly so.

The U.S. government came under fire today for chartering a rescue boat for Americans stuck in Libya that is too small to cope with the rough Mediterranean sea.

Hundreds of American citizens were finally set to depart Tripoli harbour aboard the Maria Dolores, a small passenger ferry chartered by the U.S., trapped there by rough seas.

At the same time larger Greek and Turkish vessels have transported thousands of their own citizens to safety, crossing the choppy water to mainland Europe. (link)

The State Department was struggling with multiple plates spinning simultaneously.

Secretary Clinton was noticeably unprepared to handle the heavy lifting and President Obama was not in the mood to initially bail her out.  From the botched messaging, to the failure to evacuate American citizens from Western Libya, we watched as it almost seemed President Obama was enjoying Hillary being overwhelmed.

While Hillary had been trying to fill the February 2011 void left by Obama’s silence, another key player was working policy structure behind the scenes.

One of Obama’s little known advisors named Samantha Power began to play a more important role.

Power is the wife of Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein, in 2011 she was a foreign policy advisor to President Obama along with Denis McDonough and Tom Donilon.

Samantha Power Leaving White House West WingHowever, Power increasingly held a sway when it came to Libya, and her influence was soon noted with the introduction of the “Responsibility to Protect” Doctrine, or as it became known R2P.

Essentially her approach was to frame the possibility of defeat upon the Libyan Rebels in a similar venue as the historical Rwanda genocide. The potential slaughter of the Libyan Benghazi uprising was framed around a need for Humanitarian Intervention.

Despite the U.N Security Council resolution banning weapon distribution into Libya, the broad outline of a reason for U.S. intervention became visible. NATO would arm the rebellion and NATO would take action to “protect” the Benghazi rebels as Kaddaffi’s army moved ever closer to their weakly held positions.

Samantha Power – Susan Rice – President Obama – May 2011 during the decision to arm the Libyan “rebels”.

However, there was one big problem – WE HAD NO IDEA WHO THE REBELS WERE. The administration had no idea what the ideology behind the Benghazi Rebels actually was.

Some analysts believe the administration actually did know, but chose not to recognize the rebels’ affiliation with al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood and armed them anyway.

Others, namely CNN analysts, said there was no real way to identify the ideology and we were just going to have to take a chance on them.

Personally I think there is profoundly enough visible evidence to state the administration ‘had to know’.  Why?

Because there were hundreds of on-the-ground reports from the region which accurately identified individually very specific people within the rebels as radical islamists. There is no intellectually honest way to believe the administration did not know they were supporting al-Qaeda affiliates and the Muslim Brotherhood. The signs were just too obvious.

Mustafa Abdel-Jalil (Picture taken Feb. 27th) Leader of Benghazi Opposition Council

Mustafa Abdel-Jalil (Picture taken Feb. 27th, 2011) Leader of Benghazi Opposition Council

One of the first signs was the very first Kaddaffi politician who defected from the regime and joined the rebellion. Interior Justice Minister, Mustafa Abdel Jalil.

Within 48 hours of Justice Abdel Jalil surfacing as the first defector, and becoming the defacto leader of the rebels, it was easily identifiable his ideology was for a sharia compliant Libya.

But the reality of the “rebels” being al-Qaeda affiliated made things complex. In essence the CIA and DoD knew if Kaddaffi fell the most likely scenario would be a rise of Islamic extremism.

Mustafa-Abdel-Jalil-POTUS

The compounding problem was the massive stockpiles of weapons that were at stake in the equation.

If Kaddaffi fell, decades of weapons built up in hundreds of warehouses were going to be up for grabs. Weapons that included surface-to-air missiles, MANPADS, shoulder fired stinger missiles and tons of mustard gas and WMD.

Kaddaffi had built up massive amounts of arms over a period of three decades as the worlds most notorious international terrorist.

Very soon those weapons and missiles would go missing;  and it was the retrieval of those missiles that led to a joint State Dept./CIA operation putting Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi, Eastern Libya where he was assassinated in September the following year….

So, yeah – she owns this:

Hillary - orange is the new black

  4. I am not surprised sadist Hillary laughed during the serious and gut-wrenching account of Ambassador Christopher Stevens’ last hours. Many interviews of other serious issues she also laughs. She is actually a very sick person. Like the people that laugh at disabled folks or helpless animals caught in traps or aborted babies slowly dying. She has a streak of SADISM in her. People all over the nation were shocked at her jolly and hardy laughter at such an inappropriate time and seriously delicate subject.

      Not to say you’re wrong but there is another explanation for the laughing. Some personality types learned to use laughing as a message of ridiculing the premise or accusation. The more personally threatening the accusation is (existential threat), the more likely it is to produce laughter in these types of people. This is especially so when there seems to be no escape route (valid excuse).

      I don’t know if BOTH of these explanations can co-exist but I wouldn’t be surprised.

      There is some level of unavoidable misery in human life. I accept that. But when leaders carelessly bungle, and leave other people to suffer the consequences of their poor planning, that’s not leadership. That’s exploitation, and our leadership has exploited us for a long time now for personal gain over good of the country.

    Why was Sarkozy so determined to go after Kaddafi? Was it genuinely his initiative, or was he playing an assigned role?

Like TR and San Juan Hill. Notice how she took gleeful credit for Kaddafi’s murder). This would explain how Obama’s glorification was sidetracked, albeit briefly, during this period.

    Another great article Sundance.

    All of these uprisings happened at the exact same time during the Arab Spring and were bolstered by social media. There was Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Algeria, and Yemen. There must be a Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda common thread. I think, fundamentally, that it is the political philosophy of Obama that the goals and objectives of the brotherhood are good. It is difficult to explain his actions otherwise.

    Israel needs to be on high alert and must resist any Obama 2 state solution during his final year in office with he hope that a republican president will support them. One of the main goals of the MB is the annihilation of Israel.

      Outstanding summary of events, Sundance, with great additions and questions by The Treepers.

      Many political hound dogs discussed the entry of the Muslim Brotherhood into advisory positions during Bill Clinton’s administration — not spots that required the perusal of Congress, but on the fringes. Career statesmen, degreed in languages and diplomacy with families noted for generations of service to the U.S., were replaced by foreigners under various excuses, one being that the newcomers were more familiar with the nuances of the language and culture. Some were even academics with degrees from American universities, holding chairs underwritten by the largess of Islamic dollars, mostly from the House of Saud.

      Now it smacks of a set-up for the Arab Spring across, first, northern Africa to re-empower the Muslim Brotherhood. Hindsight makes one want to kick oneself around the block a few times. Obviously, the PTB thought Gore would take the presidency and the plot could continue uninterrupted. We wondered why Geo. H. Bush didn’t dismiss those pro-Arab advisors (infiltrators) during his administration, but now it’s apparent there was “A Plan” that crossed party lines.

It also contradicted Hillary and her posse’s claim of ‘humanitarian crises which was joined by the UN’s own Humanitarian investigative team. Even after Ghaddfi was assassinated – the Red Cross being told they would discover ‘mass graves’ turned out to be a lie – 700 fatalities is all they found.
    It was AQ and the MB and their various affiliates who were causing the humanitarian crises. The DOD – then led by Sec of Defense Gates – laid out the consequences where Hillary to succeed in her goal of removing Ghaddafi on behalf of the MB (Huma Abedin).
    Making a long story short – Hillary and her fabricated intelligence, her demand to bomb and remove Ghaddafi, her many lies, her personal involvement ‘ordering’ high rank and file military generals what to do and not to do and many other issues and concoction by her – caused the resignation of Sec of Defense Gates.
    She is the reason that Gates quit but was replaced by Panetta who transferred from the CIA into the DOD. (All also by intent due to Panetta’s conspiring with Hillary in Libya).

    This is far more then just telling lies by Hillary – its about conspiracy and war crimes involving the US government; Obama’s reluctance can be understood but not his actions after being bamboozled to get involved.

    I would recommend anyone interested to go to JW and read up on these DIA released documents as well as their courageous effort and success in bringing us the truth despite being such ugly and heinous truth at times. They deserve more than respect!
    I do not believe Gowdy was aware of these documents at the hearing as Hillary appeared at the hearing.

    To this day nobody ever answered any questions regarding Goldman Sachs and the criminality on their part towards Ghaddafi. He gave 3.5 billion dollars to invest – only to ‘disappear/lose’ his money while refusing to explain and answer his many requests and explanation to the whereabouts of his money which was shortly before his country was bombed.

    Surely – his plans and efforts to dump the Petro dollar and use Gold as currency played a role in his assassination. It ruffled feathers and induced panic in globalist circles because he was to introduce that plan together with others wanting to join him – also not long before his country was destroyed.

      Cali, yes, I too think that Qhaddafi’s plans to put Libya and all of OPEC on a gold standard was part of the reason Sarkozy and Hillary decided he had to go. The potentially disastrous consequences of OPEC on a gold standard were intolerable. Add to this the Goldman-Sachs debacle and the pro-Muslim Brotherhood bent of Hillary and Obama and you wind up with exactly what happened.

    Politicians only own what sticks to them and Hillary’s a great Teflon Donna. We’re no longer asking ‘who lost Europe’, where we allowed the Russians to suck up half of Europe post-Yalta. A few irritating Moslem-filled countries with nothing much to offer us except oil and great beach potential, countries most Americans can’t even find on a map, shouldn’t be that much of an issue. As for the dead Americans, we lose that many in New Orleans on a good weekend without a squeak from the public so why should dead American thousands of miles away distract the public’s attention from the various bits of shiny things thrown in front of it daily?
    The pols know that the longer they draw out any issue the more the public’s limited attention span stays with it. Some help, at the calculated moment, by late-night network comedians who’ll gladly make the deaths the brunt of comedy and it goes away even more. Hillary’s supporters who see her as a source of things they want that the Hillary government will give them wouldn’t care if she pulled the trigger herself.
    The question of Libya’s gold’s interesting – there’s been a lot of quite international gold movement over the last 10 years or so, lost of gold the US Fed has been ‘holding’ for foreign countries is being repatriated and/or moved to other non-US repositories. Countries like Russia, China and even Mexico have been quietly buying up tones of gold as European countries who thought their gold was safer in the US than at home are now moving much of that gold home. Hmmmmmmm – what do they know about our pols that we don’t?

    Nice write up. Although I think it’s more that the Administration chose to ignore the history of Benghazi, Derna & Eastern Libya, and in the spirt of the Cairo Speech & the first inaugural, they convinced themselves that if we offered to help the “oppressed” determine their own destiny (from a distance) then they would change their view of us as evil imperialists.

    The reason I say “chose to ignore” rather than passing it off as naïveté, or wishful thinking, is that in 2007 US Army Rangers raided an al Qaeda compound near Sinjar on the Syria-Iraq border and discovered what became known as the “al-Qaeda Rolodex” for foreign fighters entering Iraq.

    Analysis of the Rolodex proved that outside of Saudi Arabia, Benghazi and Derna- the two biggest cities in Eastern Libya- were responsible for sending the largest number of foreign fighters into Iraq during the Insurgency. The Sinjar raid also provided evidence of Derna serving as logistics hub for AQ recruits coming in from all over the world. Once arriving in Derna, they would be shippe via rat lines to Iraq, Afghanistan, Mali, Somalia, Kenya, Yemen, etc.

    Given that information, the only reasonable conclusion is that the Obama Administration willfully ignored what should’ve been clear warnings about the intentions of many of the anti Qaddafi fighters in Eastern Libya.

    One other point to add is the question of why Europe suddenly turned on Qaddafi after all the concessions he made in the aftermath of the Iraq invasion in 2003…. From my understanding, all of Libya’s energy export companies are located in Eastern Libya, whereas Qaddafi’s power was centered in the western half of Libya- Tripoli.

    Europe depends on Libyan oil for a large amount of its energy needs. It seems that once Qaddafi was challenged they immediately focused on defending their energy interests above all else. That meant abandoning Gaddafi in the hopes of gaining favor w/ the east & maintaining the energy interests. There is surely a lot more to that story to come out in the years to come.

    The Libyan debacle is Mostly Hillary’s but also Barack’s responsibility since it started with the Arab spring (Obama) then Libya (Hillary) and the CIA State Department gun running operation that lead directly to Hillary as Stevens was coordinating it with all the parties involved in Benghazi. The video was the cover for the CIA operation and Obama wanting a second term. So the four that died were sacrificed to get Obama elected; so Hillary was right this is political. Only it was made so by her and Barack not the Republicans.

    The video Hillary emailed Huma about on the morning of Sept 11, 2012 was a French documentary called, “Le Serment du Tobrouk,” shown at the Cannes Film festival the previous May. Her buddy, Harvey Weinstein, bought the English rights and planned to use it to glorify Hillary’s triumph in Libya.

    What I have noticed is that the difference in what liberals expected out of the hearing. They expected her to slip up and admit that it was her fault. Short of that, they see her coming out well. They completely ignore the substance of what came to light during the hearings and have no idea what was really discussed and what conclusions must be drawn from the facts presented and what she stated.
    This is willful ignorance and its very tough to combat.
    Same thing goes for Trumps “racist statements”. If one listens to the media and ignore what he actually said, then one would totally think that he’s racist scum.
    This is today’s voting class and it exemplifies the power of the biased media and the ignorance of folks that consume only the mainstream media or their “brand” of media.

    I agree that HRC is responsible for the death of the four Americans in Benghazi, but she was SOS under Oevil. And though he was initially not seeing things her way, he went along under the pretense of R2P. The buck does stop with the Commander-In-Chief.

    The whole lot had been emboldened with his election and sought to fundamentally transform America. He didn’t have to be very explicit in his “orders” or desires for certain outcomes that fall under his radical left/Comminist/Anti-American ideology for his ilk and executors to feel called upon to advance their shared ideology.

    He must have known that HRC had always had her own WH ambitions, which he cut short with his own occupation of our WH; unstated agreements/understandings sometimes are just as “spoken” as plainly stated ones. All are culpable, the head of the lot being Oevil and her SOS White House-frustrated, first woman-president-wanna-be corrupt HRC, along with the rest of the players whom they so cleverly had positioned.

    This is why I think that no justice will ever be done under this administration. The DoJ and the FBI and the CIA and all other bodies/agencies that could bring up charges, have in a way told to “stand down.”

    I know it sounds very difficult to believe. But let’s realize that all levels of our vastly overgrow government have been infiltrated by people who hold the same ideology as Oevil and had for many decades started to oppose basic principles of government, and with the election of Oevil they had their ‘master’ at the helm and though he was not going to bark certain orders, they intuitively knew what his proclivities and preferences were. The moment these underlings heard the phrase the “fundamental transformation of America,” they heard it clearly and had, as it were, there marching orders.

    I am actually concerned that as things get more clear that this administration is culpable of many, many crimes they will try to deflect and find ways out. I just don’t even want to say it, but marshal law is not a far fetched tool in the hand of Oevil and his ilk. I pray I am wrong. I really do.
    Please tell me I am wrong on this marshal law possibility. Please.

    More insight into the mess in the Middle East…

    “Directive 11: Obama’s Secret Islamist Plan”, by Daniel Greenfield (June, 2015)

    http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/258089/directive-11-obamas-secret-islamist-plan-daniel-greenfield?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+FrontpageMag+%28FrontPage+Magazine+%C2%BB+FrontPage%29

    Behind the rise of ISIS, the Libyan Civil War, the unrest in Egypt, Yemen and across the region may be a single classified document.

    That document is Presidential Study Directive 11.

    Sundance’s post on PSD-11 from June, 2014…

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/06/19/foia-documents-reveal-obama-white-house-trying-to-coordinate-with-muslim-brotherhood-embarrassingly-misjudged-ideology-and-intent-of-muslim-brotherhood-in-2010-2011-2012/

    Remember, back in 2011, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was continually saying “we’re not sure who these rebels are“. She said they were continuing to try and identify their ideology. What these FOIA Documents reveal is that both President Obama and Secretary Hillary Clinton knew EXACTLY who the “rebels” were when they chose to support them.

    The administration had been studying them (Presidential Study Directive 11 – 2010) for over a year and even had meetings with them prior to the eruption of the Libyan crisis on Feb 14th of 2011. In the mind of the administration the Muslim Brotherhood was “moderate“.

    Article highlighted in Sundance’s post…

    http://gulfnews.com/news/mena/libya/us-document-reveals-cooperation-between-washington-and-brotherhood-1.1349207

    The Obama administration conducted an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2010 and 2011, beginning even before the events known as the “Arab Spring” erupted in Tunisia and in Egypt. The President personally issued Presidential Study Directive 11 (PSD-11) in 2010, ordering an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood and other “political Islamist” movements, including the ruling AKP in Turkey, ultimately concluding that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting “stability” in the Middle East and North Africa (that is, support for “stable regimes” even if they were authoritarian), to a policy of backing “moderate” Islamic political movements.
