Hillary’s Libya Policy Debacle
Last week, the New York Times reported on Hilary Clinton’s allies efforts to define her legacy at the State Department ahead of a 2016 campaign. The first “accomplishment” they cited? Her 13 trips to Libya in 2011 helping head up a coalition that sought regime change in the country.
Today the masterminds behind this attack enjoy leisurely public meals in Libya. Ahmed Abu Khattalla, the alleged ringleader, spent 2 hours with the New York Times sipping on a strawberry frappe. In August he met a CNN reporter at a popular coffee shop in Benghazi. In October he met with the Times of London.
How successful was Clinton’s Libya policy? As we stand today our ambassador has been murdered, his attackers roam free in the country, and our government is unwilling to capture him for fear of future retribution. A far cry from Sec. Clinton’s vow to “bring them to justice.”
