Benghazi hearing part three.
What got the US there in Lybia in the first place ?
Was Lybia posing a threat to the US and to peace in the region ?
Was Qaddafi threatening his own people ?
According to the French president unofficial advisor, Bernard Henry Lévi and the friend of the Secr. of State in the US, Blumenthal, the other unofficial advisor, YES.
Were was the proof of that ? Benghazi rebels calls and accusations. The same rebels fabricated by the accusers of Gaddafi. It is trendy to mount a rebellion, either orange (Ukraine), in Benghazi or in Syrian first so as to better justify your intervention afterwards.
Who went in Benghazi to assess this was the truth ? Nobody except a partial crew led by Senator Mc Cain.
Frankly, with retrospect, when you look how things went on for the Arab Spring to Syria and Ukraine, who can believe the Opposition in those nations ? Ukrainian Maïdan complaints were a hijack of democracy. Syrian rebels morphing into an out-of -control group, ISIS or Daesh with a surprising caliphate project tells the same story.
No outsider committee or intervention should be in a position to oust a sitting president without the consent, not of his opposition, but of his own people. That is why the Burundi case was so difficult to respond to. In the past, any intrusion has ended dramatically. Watch South Sudan savage split suffering famine and hunger. The new born nation, created under George Clooney patronage, the special envoy of president Barack Obama and John Kerry in the region, in response to Bechir divisive rule is home for oil. But, its inhabitants are dying of starvation. Women, babies and children are the most affected.
America’s first mistake is the decision-making to join the European Machiavelic croisage in Lybia.
From all accounts, this decision was a Clinton personal building which ends up collapsing.
During the hearing, we learnt that the president of the US has sent Hillary in Europe to assess the call of the europeans asking for the US assistance for the Lybian campaign. Many obstacles were lying on the road. Hillary personally conducted the operations, puling down the obstacles one by one. She even succeeded in convincing Russia to vote the 1973 resolution. In exchange of what ? Only the then Russian president, Dmitri Medvedev knows. The intensity of the first bombs dropped onto Lybia immediately brought remorse into his mind. He declared the no-fly-zone a « medieval croisade ». But it was too late to change his vote. The no-fly-zone has overrided its mission. Even the U.N. found themselves helpless.
The 1973 was meant to prevent Gaddafi to bomb the insiders rebels armed by the West. In theory, they had to monitor the Lybian sky and block any military intervention of Tripoli to Benghazi. In practice, the strategy was a plan to split Lybian into two parts, just like they did in Sudan, with the best part under their obedience. In Sudan, the South and in Lybia, it was the East part. Those two parts are rich with oil.
No leader can stand by to watch his nation being killed the colonialist way again. Lybia was an independent state the french-built coalition wanted to send back to another recolonisation and oil spoliation.
Was Clinton aware of this post-Gaddafi plan ?
Certainly Yes, she was. Not that she was a poor Secr. as a whole – this was not the issue of the committee- but, on Benghazi, many gaps are widening by the days and throughout the hearings.
a) a wrong decision
b) generated by poor advisors – either official or unofficial – looking at their personal interests.
c) and carried out by intelligence entities deficiencies or indifference
d) Security concerns were secondary on the agenda, Rep. Peter Roskam noted. That is the explainer to the absence of a post-Gaddafi agenda and the poor security handling that cost Ambassador Stevens and other diplomats lives.
e) a lot was done for Secr. Hillary image promotion in the Washington post and in the medias.
Ambassador Chris Stevens was sacrified on the altar of what cynics in politics and in economy name « REAL POLITICS » which is the pursue of State’s or Wealthy people personal interests at any costs. The essence of that real politics is coldness.
WITH COLDNESS COMES NEGLIGENCE – SOMETIMES GROSS NEGLIGENCE – AND INDIFFERENCE.
SECRETARY HILLARY IS A GOOD FIGURE BUT HER ACCOUNT OF FACTS, WHEN IT COMES TO DEALING WITH HUMAN RELATIONSHIP WITH HER AMBASSADORS AND PERSONAL IS TROUBLESOME.
SO IS THE RECOUNTING OF FACTS. THIS COMMITTEE WAS ABOUT FACT CHECKING AND FACT FINDINGS. DEMOCRATS ATTACKS SUGGESTING IT WAS ABOUT INQUISITION OR LOOKING LIKE INQUISITORIAL WERE NOT FAIR.
Part four. Fact checkings and fact findings.
