So... remember Obama and Clinton ousting Gadafi?
* * *
Islamic State militants are establishing a dangerous foothold in Libya...
* OH... AND IF MEMORY SERVES... WASN'T MCCAIN WAS ON BOARD TOO?
* GREAT JOB, FOLKS!
The militants are taking advantage of the chaos that grew after Libyan leader Moammar Ghadafi was ousted and killed...
U.S. plans to help rebuild Libya after Ghadafi largely fell to the wayside amid growing violence and the 2012 terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
The Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS, has taken up residence in the coastal city of Sirte and is attempting to expand its influence in Libya.
“The worrisome thing is if ISIS central decides to pivot and pour more resources in, it could be worse," said Frederic Wehrey, an analyst at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The militants seem to be pressing south and east of Sirte to control oil facilities in the area, he said.
“Libya is probably right now the most significant threat to becoming a full-blown sanctuary” for the Islamic State, said Patrick Johnston, a counterterrorism analyst at RAND Corp.
* SERIOUSLY... FOLKS... HOW COULD ANYONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND SUPPORT HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON FOR PRESIDENT?
"I am convinced we’re making no headway on the spread of ISIS into other countries," House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, told USA TODAY. A foothold in oil-rich Libya could give the Islamic State the ability to increase revenue through the sale of oil, already a major source of funding for the terror group.
