As Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton supported the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood against Libya’s Qaddafi government, it has been revealed.
According to US Rear Admiral Charles R. Kubic, Clinton met with Muslim Brotherhood leaders in Paris in 2011 to commit support to their “revolution.”
Writing in an article in the National Interest, Rear Admiral Kubic—who served as a senior policy analyst in the Reagan White House, and who was appointed in March 2016 as a National Security Policy Advisor to Donald Trump—detailed exactly how Clinton’s policy had destroyed US interests in North Africa.
Prior to the February 17, 2011, “Day of Rage” in Libya, Admiral Kubic wrote, Libya “was a secure, prospering, secular Islamic country and a critical ally providing intelligence on terrorist activity post–September 11, 2001.”
Qaddafi was, he continued, “no longer a threat to the United States. Yet Secretary of State Hillary Clinton strongly advocated and succeeded in convincing the administration to support the Libyan rebels with a no-fly zone, intended to prevent a possible humanitarian disaster that turned quickly into all-out war.”
He revealed that there had been two valid ceasefire opportunities made available “within weeks of the revolution” starting, one of which he had been personally involved in.
“Both opportunities were rejected and shut down by Secretary Clinton,” he continued.
“On March 14, 2011, Secretary Clinton had already met with rebel leaders in Paris, including Mahmoud Jibril, number two in the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood, and had committed to support their revolution.
“Despite valid ceasefire opportunities to prevent ‘bloodshed in Benghazi,’ at the onset of hostilities, Secretary Clinton intervened and quickly pushed her foreign policy in support of a revolution led by the Muslim Brotherhood and known terrorists in the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.”
Admiral Kubic pointed out that one of the “Libyan Rebel Brigade commanders, Ahmed Abu Khattala, would later be involved in the terrorist attack in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.”
He said “Secretary Clinton’s war” led to “a very real and very tragic humanitarian disaster.
“Her bad judgment and failed policy resulted in the arming of terrorists, months of war and tens of thousands of causalities, the murder of the American ambassador and the deaths of three other brave Americans, continued civil war and the collapse of the Libyan economy, and a failed nation-state contributing to a tragic European migrant crisis.”
He then detailed the disaster which followed the end of the Clinton-driven “revolution”:
The revolution ended October 23, 2011, and Libya held its first democratic election on July 7, 2012.
A second election was held on June 25, 2014. Despite efforts made by peaceful Libyan officials to establish a strong secular nation, radical Islamic elements rejected the election results and used military force to subvert the will of the Libyan people.
As a direct consequence of the chaos caused by Secretary Clinton’s failed policy, there are now four entities competing for control of Libya:
(1) the twice-elected democratic secular parliamentary government forced into exile in Tobruk by Islamist attacks,
(2) the unelected radical Islamist-controlled government in Tripoli,
(3) the savage ISIS terrorists who control the city of Sirte and
(4) the UN-imposed Government of National Accord (GNA) recently placed ashore in abandoned buildings in Tripoli.
