The real Benghazi scandal was Obama's drive-by war in Libya | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


The real Benghazi scandal was Obama's drive-by war in Libya

There is a real Benghazi scandal and it's this: President Obama illegally invaded Libya, overthrew Moammar Gadhafi, and then--due to politics--left a power vacuum that terrorists filled, turning Libya into a hotbed of jihadist groups. The 2012 attack that killed four Americans was a consequence of the disorder and violence the administration left in the wake of its drive-by war.

Obama’s drive-by strategy in Libya was a disaster—morally and strategically.

CNN reported "Libya's government has been unable to impose its authority over a myriad of militia groups that have grown in power and influence since the 2011 revolution that toppled longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi."

Libya's latest prime minister was driven into hiding by violent threats. Much of the country is utterly ungoverned and, as the Daily Beast's national security writer Eli Lake put it, “its lawless regions provide an ideal haven for al Qaeda affiliates and fellow travelers."

Four different terrorist groups have shown their faces in Libya since Gadhafi was deposed, Lake reported: al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, Al-Mulathameen Brigade, and Ansar al-Sharia.

Which brings the story back to Benghazi. Ansar al-Sharia played a role in the deadly 2012 raid of the U.S. diplomatic facility there. Obama's insistence on "no boots on the ground" may have left the American diplomats and intelligence operators less protected than they needed to be.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...Less protected than they needed to be."?!? My ASTROLABE!!

These people were sitting ducks, with no real protection at all.

President Obama and Hillary Clinton could have done something about this, but chose not to.

Plainly put, the aftermath of Obama's intervention in Libya has been nothing but one, big, fat, hairy epic fail, leaving the country in a critically failed state condition, and a jihad-magnet, on top of everything else.

And why did Obama and Hillary Clinton believe that they needed, desperately and immediately, to assassinate Moammar Gadhafi, and regime change the country?!?

A declassified email exchange between former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her adviser Sid Blumenthal shows that Clinton was up to her eyeballs in the Western conspiracy against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and his Pan-African "Gold Dinar" currency, F. William Engdahl narrates. A recently declassified email from the illegal private server used by ex-Secretary of State and Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton during the Washington-orchestrated war against Muammar Gaddafi sheds some light on the US establishment's genuine motivation. "In a newly declassified Clinton email from Sid Blumenthal to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton dated April 2, 2011, Blumenthal reveals the reason that Gaddafi must be eliminated," F. William Engdahl, American author, researcher and risk strategic consultant, writes in his article for New Eastern Outlook. "Using the pretext of citing an unidentified 'high source' Blumenthal writes to Clinton, 'According to sensitive information available to this source, Gaddafi's government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver… This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar," the researcher exposes. Gaddafi was not the only Arabian leader who sought to divert its oil revenues into state-controlled funds, rather than trusting it to New York and London bankers, following the US war on terror kicked off in the Middle East and Central Asia. "By 2008 the prospect of sovereign control by a growing number of African and Arab oil states of their state oil and gas revenues was causing serious concern in Wall Street as well as the City of London. It was huge liquidity, in the trillions, they potentially no longer controlled," Engdahl continues. Meanwhile, in 2009 Gaddafi, then President of the African Union, offered the states of the continent to shift to a new currency, independent from the US dollar, the so-called "Gold Dinar." According to the researcher, the idea, voiced by the Libyan leader, received high praise from Tunisia's Ben Ali and Mubarak's Egypt. Gaddafi called upon African nations to create a currency alliance making the gold dinar the primary means of payment for oil and other resources. "Along with the Arab OPEC sovereign wealth funds for their oil, other African oil nations, specifically Angola and Nigeria, were moving to create their own national oil wealth funds at the time of the 2011 NATO bombing of Libya," Engdahl writes, adding that those sovereign national funds were supposed to make Africa independent from colonial monetary control.
