Despite what the Obamas have said, Hillary Clinton is not – by any stretch of the imagination – the most qualified person to ever seek the presidency. When you dig behind the highlights of her resume, in fact, you find that although Hillary has all of the requisite “experience,” the fruit of that experience has been almost uniformly rotten.
Hillary’s only serious foreign policy experience comes from her four-year tenure as secretary of state, and it is there that we see how spectacularly unfit she is to sit in the Oval Office. Not everything that happened during that time can be blamed on her – the Russian “reset,” the Iranian nuclear agreement, and the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq are primarily Obama’s mistakes, not Hillary’s. Her fingerprints are there, but they are secondary.
However, when it comes to the disaster that was the Libyan coup, Hillary Clinton deserves every ounce of criticism she gets.
According to many insider accounts, Obama deferred to Hillary’s judgment when it came to the U.S.’s involvement in Libya’s Arab Spring. With an administration split on the right course of action, Obama gave Secretary Clinton the call. She chose intervention, presented to the public as NATO “protection.” This “protection” went on for nearly seven months, culminating in the death of Qaddafi.
“We came, we saw, he died,” Hillary said in 2011, after learning that Qaddafi was killed by a drone strike. Later, she justified that remark by explaining that she was simply glad the mission “had achieved its end.”
Alas, the public was never told that assassinating Qaddafi was the “end” goal of this mission. Supposedly, we were only there to protect the Libyan people from getting killed in a rebellion. And furthermore, we were only there in a supporting role to NATO.
But now, looking at the failed state our interference has left behind, we know the truth. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama put America’s military might behind an Islamic insurgence and gave the world another wretched pocket of chaos where terrorism can thrive.
And that doesn’t even get into the attack on the American embassy in Benghazi, a tragedy that could only have happened after Hillary’s terrible judgment paved the way.
Earlier this year, Donald Trump accused Hillary and Obama of being the co-founders of ISIS.
Whether or not that description is accurate, there’s no denying that both of them made it much, much easier for ISIS to grow. That alone should disqualify this woman from becoming president.
