Clinton Denounced The Libyan Leader She Was Once “Actively Cozying Up” To

- November 13, 2015

Clinton: “We Had A Murderous Dictator, Gadhafi, Who Had American Blood On His Hands, As I’m Sure You Remember, Threatening To Massacre Large Numbers Of The Libyan People.” COOPER: “Secretary Clinton, on the campaign trail, Governor Webb has said that he would never have used military force in Libya and that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was inevitable. Should you have seen that attack coming?” CLINTON: “Well, let’s remember what was going on. We had a murderous dictator, Gadhafi, who had American blood on his hands, as I’m sure you remember, threatening to massacre large numbers of the Libyan people. We had our closest allies in Europe burning up the phone lines begging us to help them try to prevent what they saw as a mass genocide, in their words. And we had the Arabs standing by our side saying, ‘We want you to help us deal with Gadhafi.’ Our response, which I think was smart power at its best, is that the United States will not lead this. We will provide essential, unique capabilities that we have, but the Europeans and the Arabs had to be first over the line. We did not put one single American soldier on the ground in Libya. And I’ll say this for the Libyan people...” (Hillary Clinton, Democratic Primary Debate, Las Vegas, NV, 10/13/15)

As Secretary, Clinton Was “Actively Cozying Up” To Gadhafi

“Clinton’s Response Obscures A Largely Forgotten Moment In U.S. Diplomacy: A Period Less Than Two Years Earlier When She And The Obama Administration Were Actively Cozying Up To The ‘Murderous’ Gadhafi.” “But Clinton’s response obscures a largely forgotten moment in U.S. diplomacy: a period less than two years earlier when she and the Obama administration were actively cozying up to the ‘murderous’ Gadhafi. ‘I am very pleased to welcome Minister Gadhafi here to the State Department,’ she said, warmly greeting Mutassim Gadhafi, the Libyan dictator’s son and national security adviser, at the State Department in April, 2009. ‘We deeply value the relationship between the United States and Libya.’” (Michael Isikoff, “What Clinton Left Out About Her History With Gadhafi,” Yahoo, 10/14/15)

In April 2009, Clinton Welcomed Gadhafi’s Son And National Security Adviser To The State Department: “I Am Very Pleased To Welcome Minister Gadhafi Here To The State Department… We Deeply Value The Relationship Between The United States And Libya.” “But Clinton’s response obscures a largely forgotten moment in U.S. diplomacy: a period less than two years earlier when she and the Obama administration were actively cozying up to the ‘murderous’ Gadhafi. ‘I am very pleased to welcome Minister Gadhafi here to the State Department,’ she said, warmly greeting Mutassim Gadhafi, the Libyan dictator’s son and national security adviser, at the State Department in April, 2009. ‘We deeply value the relationship between the United States and Libya.’” (Michael Isikoff, “What Clinton Left Out About Her History With Gadhafi,” Yahoo, 10/14/15)

In A 2011 Email, Clinton Aide Jake Sullivan “Touted Clinton’s Role In ‘Tightening The Noose Around Qadhafi [Sic] And His Regime.’”  “In the aftermath of Gadhafi’s overthrow, Clinton’s aides celebrated her role in Libya. ‘It shows [Secretary Clinton’s] leadership/ownership/stewardship of this country’s Libya policy from start to finish,’ her top foreign policy adviser, Jake Sullivan, wrote to her chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, in an Aug. 22, 2011, email that touted Clinton’s role in ‘tightening the noose around Qadhafi [sic] and his regime.’” (Michael Isikoff, “What Clinton Left Out About Her History With Gadhafi,” Yahoo, 10/14/15)

“Sullivan’s Email Left Out The Real ‘Start’ Of Clinton’s Tenure At The State Department, When SheAnd Other U.S. Officials Were Embracing Gadhafi’s Regime, Not ‘Tightening The Noose.’” “And Sullivan’s email left out the real ‘start’ of Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, when she and other U.S. officials were embracing Gadhafi’s regime, not ‘tightening the noose.’” (Michael Isikoff, “What Clinton Left Out About Her History With Gadhafi,” Yahoo, 10/14/15)
