(Note: the story about how Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails pointed out ethnic cleansing in Libya has been circulating for over a month. I decided to repeat some of it here since the press, for the most part, has ignored it.)
“Libyan people don’t like people with dark skins, though some of them may be innocent.”
A Libyan militia leader made that statement in 2011 as a way to somewhat explain why all dark-skinned Libyans or African migrants stand accused of being Muammar Gaddafi-hired mercenaries and subjected to arrest, torture and execution.
For example, Libyan rebels and militia members attacked the town of Tawergha, known for its majority Black population, during that same year. The town was emptied of its residents shortly after.
This is a textbook definition of ethnic cleansing.
And the extermination of dark-skinned Africans in Libya adds clarity to an email Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of State, received from private adviser Sydney Blumenthal on March 27, 2011 — eight days after the US and NATO launched air strikes in Libya to protect civilians from a Gaddafi-led slaughter — where he mentioned a certain rebel commander’s “troops continue to summarily execute all foreign mercenaries captured in the fighting.”
In case you don’t think the phrase “summarily execute” should set off a trigger in Hillary’s brain that targeted killings were taking place in Libya, or that battlefield executions can only be seen as war crimes, check out the BBC’s report of the murderous racial targeting in 2011 (emphasis mine):
In the past week, the phrase “African mercenaries” has been repeated by Libyan citizens and rolling news, eyewitnesses to the violence in Tripoli have spat the word “African” with venomous hatred.
In the violence of the last fortnight, the colonel’s African connections have only served to rekindle a deep-rooted racism between Arabs and black Africans.
As mercenaries, reputedly from Chad and Mali fight for him, a million African refugees and thousands of African migrant workers stand the risk of being murdered for their tenuous link to him.
And now this:
One Turkish construction worker told the BBC: “We had 70-80 people from Chad working for our company. They were cut dead with pruning shears and axes, attackers saying: ‘You are providing troops for Gaddafi.’ The Sudanese were also massacred. We saw it for ourselves.”
My only intelligence-gathring tool is Google, and I knew back in 2011 that the same Libyan rebels Clinton supported to overthrow Gaddafi were ethnically cleansing Libyan cities of Black Africans.
Therefore, It’s difficult for Clinton — with all her advisers and spy teams — to not realize that she backed the military aims of rebels, who in turn backed genocide.
Subsequent to the US-led invasion of Libya which resulted in the death of Muammar Gaddafi, Secretary Clinton summarized her country’s actions — which were praised by many media outlets — as necessary and correct:
[W]e set into motion a policy that was on the right side of history, on the right side of our values, on the right side of our strategic interests in the region.
The recent email disclosure provides evidence of Clinton being aware that Egyptian and Western Special Forces troops were training and arming Libyan militia groups near Libya’s border — prior to country’s peaceful demonstrations turning violent.
These militia groups were known to have been infiltrated by al-Qaeda operatives, according to the same email. This means Team Hillary — well, Team Obama, more broadly — knowingly supported Libyan insurgents who had terrorist ties.
A few of us already knew that Clinton’s “Bomb to protect” justification to attack Libya was premised on a lie.
But Blumenthal’s April 3, 2011 email to Secretary Clinton’s private email server identifies familiar reasons for why the West wanted to oust Gaddafi — fear of a rising East:
The result of this violent chicanery: one of Africa’s most prosperous countries has been thrown into bloody chaos with al-Qaeda and Islamic State (ISIL) expanding into the territory for control.
The entire Libya fiasco is another reason why I thought the partisan-decorated Senate hearings over Clinton’s emails were a joke. Red State vs. Blue State is only a head fake for couch-surfing political junkies who aspire to be CNN analysts. The game is all about Deep State, which matters more than Black and Olive lives ever will. And Clinton is Deep State’s pick for President …
