Barack Obama has ended his presidential career doing what he does best: dropping bombs. This time, Obama decided to target an ISIS camp in Libya, with initial estimates suggesting over 80 militants (or 80 people, depending on the source) were killed.
Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook told reporters that the fighters training in the camp, located just outside the Libyan city of Sirte, “posed a security risk to Libya, to its neighbors, to our allies in Africa and Europe, and to the United States.”Continue reading »
(ANTIWAR) Gen. Khalifa Hifter, the head of the self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA), has had a long list of allies. Starting as a participant in Gadhafi’s 1969 military coup, he rose steadily through the ranks before being captured by Chad during the 1987 war. He was disavowed by Gadhafi, but by 1988 was a top figure in the CIA-backed rebels. Continue reading »
Even though Trump has said he won’t pursue a criminal investigation of Hillary’s email situation, her past demons just won’t seem to fade quietly into the night. One federal case that is still open was filed by the mothers of the Benghazi soldiers who claim Hillary intentionally lied to them to progress a convenient political narrative and subsequently attacked their character when that narrative was revealed to be completely fabricated. While Hillary has requested that the lawsuit be dropped, the Plaintiffs’ lawyers have blasted the request saying that it would be just another “special favor” to the “political elite.” Per WND: Continue reading »
Pet monkey pulled off girl’s headscarf igniting days of tribal fighting in the south, killing at least 16 people.
Days of deadly tribal clashes have erupted in southern Libya after a pet monkey attacked a high school girl.
Abdel-Rahman Areish, the head of Sabha city hospital, told the Associated Press news agency on Sunday 20 people have been killed and 50 wounded. Reuters said at least 16 people died in four days of fighting. Continue reading »
In the latest revelation certain to reignite accusations of collusion between the Clinton campaign and the DOJ, among the recent batch of hacked emails released by Wikileaks, we learn that one day after Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi tesimony last October, John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chairman met for dinner with a small group of well-connected friends, including top DOJ official Peter Kadzik.
Why do we hear only of the “humanitarian crisis in Aleppo” and not of the humanitarian crisis everywhere else in Syria where the evil that rules in Washington has unleashed its ISIL mercenaries to slaughter the Syrian people? Why do we not hear about the humanitarian crisis in Yemen where the US and its Saudi Arabian vassal are slaughtering Yemeni women and children? Why don’t we hear about the humanitarian crisis in Libya where Washington destroyed a country leaving chaos in its place? Why don’t we hear about the humanitarian crisis in Iraq, ongoing now for 13 years, or the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan now 15 years old?
The answer is that the crisis in Aleppo is the crisis of Washington losing its ISIL mercenaries to the Syrian army and Russian air force. The jihadists sent by Obama and the killer bitch Hillary (“We came, we saw, he died”) to destroy Syria are being themselves destroyed. The Obama regime and the Western presstitutes are trying to save the jihadists by covering them in the blanket of “humanitarian crisis.” Continue reading »
Parliamentary Report Confirms What the Alternative Media Has Been Saying for Years
The UK Parliament just confirmed what the alternative media has been saying for years.
Specifically, a new report from the bipartisan House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee – based on interviews with all of the key British decision-makers, review of documents, and on-the-ground investigations in Africa – found that Libyan war was based on lies, that it destroyed the country, and that it spread terrorism far and wide.
The War Based On Bogus Intelligence … Like the Iraq War
Initially, the report finds that the threat to civilians from Libyan government forces was dramatically overstated: Continue reading »
The head of the UN Support Mission in Libya, Martin Kobler, has warned that there are 235,000 migrants in Libya “just waiting for the opportunity to go to Italy, which they will.”
In an interview Thursday with the Italian daily La Stampa, Kobler said that new waves of migrants will soon be hitting Italy’s shores, adding to the nearly 300,000 migrants that have arrived into Europe by sea since the first of the year. Continue reading »
The UK strategy in Libya was based on erroneous facts, and the operation to protect civilians turned into “regime change by military means,” a report by UK Foreign Affairs Select Committee said, adding that ex-PM David Cameron is “ultimately responsible.”
The report dubbed “Libya: Examination of intervention and collapse and the United Kingdom’s future policy options” was released on Wednesday.
“In March 2011, the United Kingdom and France, with the support of the United States, led the international community to support an intervention in Libya to protect civilians from attacks by forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi,” the report stated.
However, this policy was not informed “by accurate intelligence” and a limited intervention “to protect civilians drifted into a policy of regime change by military means.”Continue reading »
… sometime within the 6 days after a call with “President Clinton’s Staff,” the server was wiped clean using BleachBit despite the subpoena from the House Select Committee on Benghazi received weeks earlier on March 4, 2016.
When asked what surprised him the most about Hillary Clinton’s thousands of emails, Assange said the “most interesting and serious” information on Hillary Clinton is yet to be released.
Assange then proceeded to nudge viewers towards the direction of an already released email thread call the “Libya Tick Tock”…a stream of emails which clearly certifies Hillary’s lead position in the Libyan disaster.
Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton may have thought she could breathe a sigh of relief when FBI Director James Comey did not recommend charges be filed against her in connection with her unprecedented secret server set-up, but she hadn’t counted on federal judges, who are not quite as forgiving.
Perhaps in indirect response to the Kahn family attacks on Donald Trump, Pat Smith and Charles Woods, parents of Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods who were killed in the Benghazi terrorist attacks on September 11, 2012, have filed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton alleging, among other things, that her “negligent and reckless” actions with regard to her private email server resulted in the “wrongful death” of their sons. The lawsuit, filed in the District of Columbia, also accuses Clinton of “defamation” and “intentional infliction of emotional distress” as they claim she has launched a “smear campaign” against the Plaintiffs in an effort to cover up the facts and save her Presidential campaign.
The suit alleges that Clinton’s use of a private email server is what allowed terrorist groups in Libya to obtain the whereabouts of Ambassador Christopher Stevens which ultimately led to the “wrongful death” of their sons: Continue reading »
While so many rumors, accusations, and scandals surround the 2013 incident in Benghazi where a number of U.S. ambassadorial staff as well as Ambassador Chris Stevens were murdered by Islamic extremists, the question almost always arises “How much was known about Stevens’ mission of supporting terrorists in Syria and who knew it?”
While discussion of how Stevens was killed, how he was killed, or if anyone knew what was going to happen to Stevens is outside of the scope of this article, the question of whether or not it was known that Stevens was essentially working as a conduit between terrorists in Libya and those in Syria, as well as a facilitator of arms to those terrorists, is well worth mentioning. Indeed, it is important to note that documents obtained by Judicial Watch from the Department of Defense and Department of State reveal that the Obama administration as well as the State Department, i.e. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, were all well aware of the fact that weapons were being shipped to terrorists in Syria via Benghazi, Libya.

(MEE) President Barack Obama has authorized a month-long bombing campaign against the Islamic State group in Libya, as questions remain over possible UK and European military involvement in the country.
In fresh air attacks on Tuesday, a US Marine Corps Harrier jet launched from amphibious assault ship USS Wasp, and US drones operating from Jordan, struck at least two Islamic State targets in the coastal city of Sirte, after Obama said he had authorized US forces to carry out a 30-day mission.

In what comes as the most expected geopolitical development in recent years, moments ago the United States announced that it had launched multiple airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Libya on Monday, opening a new, more persistent front against the group at the request of the United Nations-backed government, Libyan and U.S. officials said.
The strikes, which allegedly targeted an Islamic State tank and vehicles, come amid growing concerns about the group’s increased threat to Europe and its ability to inspire attacks across the region. “The presidency council, as the general army commander, has made a request for direct U.S. support to carry out specific airstrikes,” Serraj said. “The first strikes started today in positions in Sirte, causing major casualties.” Continue reading »
Libya’s national investment fund is attempting to claw back $1.2 billion from nine trades it carried out with Goldman Sachs in 2008, which supposedly came about after the bank used prostitutes, private jets, and five star hotels to secure contracts.

Weird things are happening in the Mediterranean Sea. Almost simultaneously three countries in the Mediterranean have closed their airspace and territories for aircraft departing from Libya. The exceptions are very few and involve the transport of military and evacuees. At the same time, three NATO exercises are taking place but the airspace closure and directly little to do with that.
In retrospect, Obama’s intervention in Libya was an abject failure, judged even by its own standards. Libya has not only failed to evolve into a democracy; it has devolved into a failed state. Violent deaths and other human rights abuses have increased severalfold. Rather than helping the United States combat terrorism, as Qaddafi did during his last decade in power, Libya now serves as a safe haven for militias affiliated with both al Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). The Libya intervention has harmed other U.S. interests as well: undermining nuclear nonproliferation, chilling Russian cooperation at the UN, and fueling Syria’s civil war.?
As bad as Libya’s human rights situation was under Qaddafi, it has gotten worse since NATO ousted him. Immediately after taking power, the rebels perpetrated scores of reprisal killings, in addition to torturing, beating, and arbitrarily detaining thousands of suspected Qaddafi supporters. The rebels also expelled 30,000 mostly black residents from the town of Tawergha and burned or looted their homes and shops, on the grounds that some of them supposedly had been mercenaries. Six months after the war, Human Rights Watch declared that the abuses “appear to be so widespread and systematic that they may amount to crimes against humanity.”?
As a consequence of such pervasive violence, the UN estimates that roughly 400,000 Libyans have fled their homes, a quarter of whom have left the country altogether. ?
Earlier today, The Guardian published an article detailing how foreign leaders were gathering in Vienna to discuss how to address the humanitarian disaster/ISIS haven they themselves created in Libya. As usual, the key agenda item revolved around whether the U.S. and its allies should ship weapons into the arena to inspire, you know, freedom and democracy.
Reading the piece leaves you with a clear sense of what a quagmire it really is. For example:Continue reading »
Now stop imagining and take a look at the situation in Libya, where the central bank chief sits in Eastern Libya, while the headquarters is further West in Tripoli, and despite Tripoli sending $23.5 million each month to Eastern Libya, it’s only a fraction of what central bank governor Ali El Hibri says is needed to pay the bills ($257 million to be exact).
The situation becomes even more strange when the fact that Eastern Libya actually does have a significant amount of gold and silver that it could use to sell and convert to cash, but it’s in a vault that requires a five-number access code that nobody seems to have. Nobody that is, except for El Hibri’s counterparts in Tripoli that is, and they won’t give the code out.Continue reading »
Clinton told Egyptian PM “We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film”
A transcript of a telephone conversation released by The State Department proves once and for all that Hillary Clinton knowingly lied about the Benghazi attack on the American diplomatic compound there in 2012.
The transcript, obtained under a FOIA request by Judicial Watch, details a call immediately after the attack between the then-secretary of state and then-Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil. Continue reading »
30/03/2016 – Libya – 800,000 migrants waiting to sail
Austrian paper Kronen Zeitung reports that over 800,000 migrants have collected at the coast in Libya ready to cross into Europe at any time. French Interior Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian admitted to press that hundreds of thousands will likely come and that the EU currently has no plan to deal with the problem.
