The Libya Lie

Almost everything we’ve been told about Libya, including the terrorist attack on the Benghazi consulate, is a lie. These two articles lay the blame for the lie squarely on President Barack Obama.

The reason Libyan streets aren’t safe and the country is ruled by roving gangs of militia is due to the U.S. bombing last year, writes Judge Andrew Napolitano on LewRockwell.com.

“In an unconstitutional act of war, the president alone ordered the bombing. It destroyed the Libyan military, national and local police, roads, bridges, and private homes. It facilitated the murder of our former ally Col. Gadhafi and ensured the replacement of him by a government that cannot govern.”

Libya wasn’t “liberated” but plunged into the chaos of tribal payback, observes Victor David Hanson in the National Review.

“Former Qaddafi supporters and African mercenaries were executed by those we helped. Islamists began consolidating power, desecrating a British military cemetery and driving out Westerners.”
