Clinton: ‘We didn’t lose a single person’ in Libya


Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton argued late Monday that U.S. involvement in deposing Libya leader Moammar Gadhafi had not cost any American lives.

“Libya was a different kind of calculation,” she said of military involvement there in 2011 compared with current efforts in Syria during a MSNBC town hall in Springfield, Ill.

“We didn’t lose a single person,” the former secretary of State added. “We didn’t have a problem in supporting our European and Arab allies in working with NATO.
“We’ve got to continue to support the Libya people, to give them a chance, because otherwise you see what happened in Syria, with the consequences of millions of people flooding out of Syria, with more than 250,000 people killed, with terrorist groups like [the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria] taking up almost – huge blocks of territory, as big as some of the states in that area.”

Clinton also charged that the U.S. owed its foreign allies after their cooperation in the invasion of Afghanistan.

America placed Moammar Gadhafi in power via the CIA. Than he became expendable. she is so stupid and illiterate but she is the new white hope for this country-redneck hillbilly trash. The stupidity is so profound and overwhelming, but political correctness is the subjugation of the masses. she has complete outright ignorance, hostility and contempt for the American people-like the muslim pres.

Ambassador Stevens could not be reached for comment.

What is her problem ?

If you don’t give her money, you are not a person.

She didn’t have any classified information on her computer either.

She could show you the statistics showing what a success our efforts in Libya have been, but she deleted them.

Hey, would she LIE?

@Bill: This could also be a ploy. Both Trump and Cruz stated that if elected they would have her indicted and prosecuted. Perhaps she figures that in the event she loses the election, she can use her statement as part of an insanity defense.

@DrJohn: Actually, more like anyone that causes her some political embarrassment are not considered people.

Hillary pushed for the toppling of Qadaffi because she hoped to make Libya the poster child for the Obama-Clinton administration’s touted “Arab Spring”. Gregory Hicks, the No. 2 official in Libya at the time of the Benghazi attack that killed Ambassador Stevens and three others, testified before the House Oversight Committee on the real reason Stevens was in Benghazi that tragic night. As Investor’s Business Daily said of Benghazi and its aftermath:

The disgraceful cover-up afterwards is rivaled by the disgraceful lack of security provided to the mission, which was set up to be a permanent diplomatic post at which Clinton would arrive to celebrate the triumph of the Obama administration’s Middle East policy.

Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, the day he died in the terrorist attack, because Clinton ordered him there. Hicks said Stephens wanted to have the Benghazi complex upgraded to a permanent constituent post so Clinton could make this announcement in her planned visit to Libya before the end of 2012.

Ah, the Arab Spring. Strongly supported and defended by Obama and Hillary which has led to chaos in Egypt, Syria, Libya and the growth in strength of radical Islam.

That Obama… what a political genius. He really knows how to pick em.
