Removing an ally who was conducting enhanced interrogations of suspected Al Qaeda members for the CIA ?
Or the mission of allowing Al Qaeda to use Libya as a base of operations ?
The mission of arms trafficking to Muslim extremest in Syria ?
The mission of regime change so the frogs could get a better deal for Libyan oil ?
The mission of challenging the War powers Act ?
The mission of forcing Qaddafi into a life of homosexuality by sodomizing him ?
2. The goal wasn't to turn Libya into a base of operations for al-Qaeda. The lack of concrete support for the Libyan government after the fall of Gaddafi has been shameful and reflects terribly on the administration and the international community.
3. Using Libya as a hub to direct whatever meagre support we've been willing to offer to worthy rebels is a laudable mission. We should do more.
4. What? You can't possibly believe that.
5. How did he challenge that?
In 2003 Qaddafi like all Muslims feared G.W. Bush and Qaddafi became a secret ally of the USA on it's war against Al Qaeda and Muslim extremest.
Libya destroyed it's WMD's, dismantled it's development of nuclear weapons and cut off all ties with terrorist organizations. Because the CIA was no longer allowed to use enhanced interrogations, Qaddafi's intelligence service took over that job for the CIA of captured Al Qaeda.
Qaddafi like Egypt's Mubarak kept the lid on North Africa, kept the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda from expanding in North Africa. There was no Al Qaeda black flag flying over Libya before Obama ****ed up.
Gaddafi was a deeply unstable psychopathic dictator who deserved everything he got. The great tragedy is that we didn't step into the breach to seriously help the new Libyan government.
Too bad we can't get Khadaffi back.
