“We came, we saw, he died,” quipped Hillary Clinton as she tried to parlay what liberals believed were the successes of the Obama administration to a third-term with her at the helm, but as it turned out, ousting Libyan strongman, Muammar Gaddafi, created not only chaos in the region, but a humanitarian disaster of epic magnitude.

The liberal mainstream media remains averse to openly criticizing liberal policies or politicians, so it is no surprise that the current situation in Libya is not getting widespread coverage.

But the ugly truth is that for black Africans, life after Gaddafi is far worse than anything experienced in the time of the dictator who had been kept largely docile for a period of years before Obama and Clinton decided he needed to go.

In fact, recent video from Libya aired on CNN has shown blacks from sub-Saharan Africa being sold as slaves in outdoor markets.

Young men are being auctioned in such marketplaces to work as slaves on farms and, according to the BBC, “Libya has been beset by chaos since NATO-backed forces overthrew long-serving ruler Col. Muammar Gadhafi in October 2011.”

That action took place at the behest of President Obama’s first Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who took a Cabinet position in the Obama administration following her loss to him in the 2008 Democrat primaries.

Gaddafi had relied on a 2003 deal with President George W. Bush that allowed him to continue his rule if he voluntarily stopped the development of weapons of mass destruction.

That agreement held as long as Bush remained president, but Obama was urged by Clinton to break it in 2011, which threw the Middle Eastern county into spasms of civil war and destabilization.

Millions of Libyans were displaced from their homes and have sought refuge in Europe, spreading even more pain and suffering beyond the country’s border.

Clinton’s adviser, Sidney Blumenthal, actually told her to brag about “the successful strategy” in her campaign for the presidency, thinking it would be seen as a brilliant defeat of an enemy.

Instead, it is now seen as emboldening North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un by demonstrating that the U.S. cannot be trusted to keep its promises and hence removing any incentive the communist country might have to enter into a similar agreement in much the same way as President Obama’s “red line” warning to Syria that came and went without enforcement.

Clinton has escaped criticism from pundits or the media even as people are sold at slave auctions on a daily basis thanks to her policies that she jokes about so freely now.

Should Hillary Clinton be held accountable in the press for her advice to President Obama advocating the overthrow of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi that has led to a humanitarian crisis in that country that includes slave auctions?
