For Hillary some lives don’t count

For Hillary some lives dont count

Yesterday, at a townhall hosted by MSNBC, Hillary Clinton defended her reckless interventionist policy to oust Gaddafi in Libya.

“Libya was a different kind of calculation. And we didn’t lose a single person. We didn’t have a problem in supporting our European and Arab allies in working with NATO.”

We didn’t lose a single person?

Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were unavailable for comment.

The often confused former Miss Rodham went on:

“Now, is Libya perfect? It isn’t. But did they have two elections that were free and fair where they voted for moderates. Yes, they did. So you know, changing from a dictator who has hollowed out your country to something resembling a functioning state and even hopefully more of a democratic one doesn’t happen overnight. And we’ve got to continue to support the Libyan people, to give them a chance, because otherwise you see what has 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 ISIS taking up almost — huge blocks of territory, as big as some of the states in that area.”

Hillary fails to mention that Libya has also been taken over by ISIS. Because apparently those moderates that were elected in a “free and fair” election were unable to actually cobble together a functioning state.

What’s remarkable about this crazy-ass comment is Hillary’s complete unwillingness to acknowledge that lives were lost. Turmoil erupted in Libya almost immediately after the United States helped these rebels overthrow the Gaddafi regime. And it has gotten steadily worse in the last five years.

Politico gives Hillary the benefit of the doubt, saying:

Clinton may have been referring strictly to the U.S.-backed overthrow of Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi in 2011, which indeed saw no loss of American lives and cost just around $1 billion. But her comments ignore the 2012 attacks at the U.S. mission and CIA outpost in Benghazi, which killed four people including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.

Okay, fine, Politico. But let’s keep in mind one thing. But for the fact that Hillary pushed for this “regime change” in Libya, the situation on the ground in Benghazi wouldn’t have been what it was. With Gaddafi gone, Benghazi became a volatile, deadly place. Obama and Hillary’s interventionist policies in Libya led directly to the night of September 11, 2012.

She built that. She made that happen.

For her to selectively edit out the deaths of four Americans as if they don’t count isn’t just disingenuous. It is downright despicable.
