Libya: Obama’s Proxy War – The Blundered Beginning of the would-be Beginning of the End

Libya: Obama’s War

Why didn’t Obama retaliate after the red line was crossed? Because he crossed it.

TLDR

  • Clinton and Obama overthrew the Libyan government, sending Libya into chaos.
  • We lost track of Gadhafi’s weapons, including chemical weapons. It turns out he had more than we knew about.
  • Obama and Clinton gave many of them to ISIS using a Qatari arms trafficking network. The rest were up for grabs.
  • Obama approved the transfer of 20,000 tons of weapons from Qatar to… Well we’re not exactly sure who still. Basically everyone.
  • Some of Gadhafi’s Sarin gas was taken to Syria.
  • Since then, The Obama Administration has approved over $9 billion in US arms exports to Qatar.
