COLUMN: You Can Thank Hillary Clinton For The Emerging Slave Markets In Libya

Hillary

You may not have heard it reported in the mainstream media, but a new slave market is emerging in Libya. Africans, mostly fleeing refugees, are being taken prisoner by bad men and sold into slavery.

According to Law Professor Glenn Reynolds, much of the blame for this situation lies with Hillary Clinton.

He writes at USA Today:

Africans are being sold at Libyan slave markets. Thanks, Hillary Clinton.

Black Africans are being sold in open-air slave markets, and it’s Hillary Clinton’s fault. But you won’t hear much about that from the news media or the foreign-policy pundits, so let me explain.

Footage from Libya, released recently by CNN, showed young men from sub-Saharan Africa being auctioned off as farm workers in slave markets.

And how did we get to this point? As the BBC reported back in May, “Libya has been beset by chaos since NATO-backed forces overthrew long-serving ruler Col. Moammar Gadhafi in October 2011.”

And who was behind that overthrow? None other than then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Under President George W. Bush in 2003, the United States negotiated an agreement with Libyan strongman Gadhafi. The deal: He would give up his weapons of mass destruction peacefully, and we wouldn’t try to depose him.

That seemed a good deal at the time, but the Obama administration didn’t stick to it. Instead, in an operation spearheaded by Clinton, the United States went ahead and toppled him anyway.

Reynolds goes on to suggest the situation in Libya became unstable as a direct result of foreign policy carried out on Hillary’s watch as Secretary of State which led to the current situation. He makes an excellent case.
