Ms Clinton and Libya


For John, BLUFBenghazi isn't Ms Clinton's real Libya Problem.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



At CNN on Monday, Reporter Stephen Collinson talks to "Hillary Clinton's real Libya problem".  Note, not FOX News, but CNN.

Hillary Clinton has another Libya problem.

She's already grappling with the political headaches from deleted emails and from the terror attack that left four Americans dead in Benghazi.

But she'll face a broader challenge in what's become of the North African country since, as secretary of state in 2011, she was the public face of the U.S. intervention to push out its longtime strongman, Moammar Gadhafi.

Libya's lapse into the chaos of failed statehood has provided a breeding ground for terror and a haven for groups such as ISIS.  Its plight is also creating an opening for Republican presidential candidates to question Clinton's strategic acumen and to undermine her diplomatic credentials, which will be at the center of her pitch that only she has the global experience needed to be president in a turbulent time.

I do think the real issue with regard to Benghazi is the violation of the First Amendment.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

Sauce for the goose, considering the culpability of just about the entire Congress running blindly along with our previous blind squirrel, Mr. Dubya, in creating a far more extensive problem in what will eventually no longer be possible to call Iraq. (For the inevitability of its disintegration). We have to stop pretending we have two major political parties here, and come to grips with the truth that it's all one big tax-and-spend war machine.
