Libya Has A Flourishing Slave Trade Today Thanks To Hillary Clinton [VIDEO]

Two weeks ago CNN published a report about Libya’s slave trade. No, the report wasn’t a historical retrospective. It was about people being auctioned off as slaves in 2017.

“Eight hundred,” says the auctioneer. “900 … 1,000 … 1,100 …” Sold. For 1,200 Libyan dinars — the equivalent of $800.

Not a used car, a piece of land, or an item of furniture. Not “merchandise” at all, but two human beings. One of the unidentified men being sold in the grainy cell phone video obtained by CNN is Nigerian. He appears to be in his twenties and is wearing a pale shirt and sweatpants.

He has been offered up for sale as one of a group of “big strong boys for farm work,” according to the auctioneer, who remains off camera. Only his hand — resting proprietorially on the man’s shoulder — is visible in the brief clip.

In this day and age, how is this happening? Why is slavery flourishing? The short answer for the how is that evil takes advantage of chaos. Chaos that has been present in Libya since Col. Moammar Gaddafi was overthrown in 2011. Chaos that led to ISIS and others gaining momentum and which led to the Benghazi attack in 2012.

The why involves identifying those to blame for the chaos that is now Libya. Don’t get me wrong, the slave traders are very much at fault.

However, as Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds points out, a former Secretary of State is ALSO to blame.

Hillary Clinton was the one who pushed for the U.S. to join NATO in advocating that Gaddafi’s forces be bombed in 2011. She is the one that got Obama to agree to doing so and once the bombing was completed, took a victory lap around Libya. Not long after that victory lap, Gaddafi was killed and his government was overthrown.

Awwww, that’s sweet! NOT. Want to know how much damage Hillary did with this Libya gambit of hers? Want to know what a miserable failure this aspect of her foreign policy is? Take a look.

But the new Western-backed government proved incapable of uniting Libya. And in the end, the strongman’s death led to chaos. When four Americans were killed by terrorists in Benghazi in 2012, it revealed just how bad things had gotten. Colonel Gaddafi’s huge arsenal of weapons has shown up in the hands of terrorists in places like Gaza, Syria, Nigeria and Mali. Hundreds of thousands of migrants have fled through Libya on boats. Many have drowned. And the power vacuum has allowed ISIS to build its most dangerous outpost on the Libyan coast. Today, just 300 miles from Europe, Libya is a failed state.

NATO should share the blame as well. However, Hillary Clinton really needs to be asked why, when Libya was much more stable than Syria or Yemen, when she along with Susan Rice and Sidney Blumenthal, sold NATO’s intervention in Libya as the only way to solve the supposedly horrendous humanitarian crisis. However, to this day, there is not a shred of evidence to back up Hillary’s claim that a bloodbath in Benghazi or Libya as a whole was imminent.

Does Hillary have anything to say about the slave trade in Libya? Nope. First of all she hasn’t been asked. Secondly, she’s pretty busy with her ‘What Happened’ blame tour.

As for others in this country who are so quick to lay blame for racism? Where are they regarding this?

There are quite a few folks who desperately want Hillary to run in 2020. Well, should that happen, which it had better not, this particular foreign policy failure of hers should be front and center news.

Hillary pushed hard for intervention in Libya. She got what she wanted. That set off a chain of events from Gaddafi’s death to Benghazi and now to the atrocities of slavery.

You want to know ‘What Happened’ in Libya? Hillary Clinton happened.
