Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, July 27, 2014

The United States shuttered its embassy in Libya on Saturday and evacuated its diplomats to neighboring Tunisia under U.S. military escort as fighting intensified between rival militias. Secretary of State John Kerry said "free-wheeling militia violence" prompted the move. American personnel at the Tripoli embassy, which had already been operating with limited staffing, left the capital around dawn and travelled by road to Tunisia, with U.S. fighter jets and other aircraft providing protection, the State Department said. The mission was conducted without incident, and the entire operation lasted approximately five hours, officials said.

Tell us again what was the point in the USA taking out Ghadafi as a trouble maker as he committed to Bush not to seek nukes. The bad stuff in Libya has happened since Ghadafi the leader of a sovereign nation was overthrown. The USA would be better off cutting ties with Israel the real trouble maker and throwing their lobbyists out and instead supporting our citizens.

This is another one of those examples of a thread that would be 100 long if a Republican were the architect of this debacle.

Long live Assad.

Not because he is a nice guy, but because its a pretty safe bet that anything that replaces him would be worse.

Benghazi threads are too narrowly focused. The much bigger scandal should be that we destablized another country and made it a terrorist haven and should have known better. It gets swept under the rug as if it never happened.

Security = the American empire

insurgency = against the American empire

OMG!!!

You mean that the people of Libya don't think that of the American empire that invaded their country and installed a viceroy as liberators!?!?!?

They must hate us for our freedom.

Hope and change!

Except . . . that nobody in this administration did learn it.

They were running around for 6 years saying vis a vis Iraq, "See? This is what happens when you rush in without a strategy. This is what happens when you depose a strong leader and cede control of the country to rebels you don't know."

Then other morons got elected, and did the same thing in Egypt, Libya, and Syria. Tired of all the libbies saying that Obama is busy cleaning up W's messes, when every newspaper on earth is saying that he's actually multiplying them.
