He warned them. He said the Jihadis would take over if they took him out:

Muammar Gaddafi warned Tony Blair in two fraught phone conversations in 2011 that his removal from the Libyan leadership would open a space for al-Qaida to seize control of the country and even launch an invasion of Europe.

The transcripts of the conversations have been published with Blair’s agreement by the UK foreign affairs select committee, which is conducting an inquiry into the western air campaign that led to the ousting and killing of Gaddafi in October 2011.

In the two calls the former British prime minister pleaded with Gaddafi to stand aside or end the violence. The transcripts reveal the gulf in understanding between Gaddafi and the west over what was occurring in his country and the nature of the threat he was facing.

Gaddafi was in a box. He was under control. He was fighting the Islamists.

In the first call, at 11.15am on 25 February 2011, Gaddafi gave a warning in part borne out by future events: “They [jihadis] want to control the Mediterranean and then they will attack Europe.”

In the second call, at 3.25pm the same day, the Libyan leader said: “We are not fighting them, they are attacking us. I want to tell you the truth. It is not a difficult situation at all. The story is simply this: an organisation has laid down sleeping cells in north Africa. Called the al-Qaida organisation in north Africa … The sleeping cells in Libya are similar to dormant cells in America before 9/11.”

That wasn’t good enough.

barack obama, with hillary’s full support, toppled the Gaddafi regime. obama, ever the perennial liar, first claimed regime change was not the goal.

Obama also said ISIS was about finished.


He also said the Taliban was decimated.

hillary clinton found the death of Moammar Gaddafi quite amusing:

Proving that they learned absolutely nothing from Iraq, they knocked over a regime and had no plans for the aftermath. obama admitted that was his biggest mistake, although he was one of the only two people on Earth who didn’t know it was a yuge mistake at the time.

As they say, actions have consequences. That colossal screw-up has created a safe place- for ISIS. Donald Trump is getting done something barack obama never could do- put us on path to wipe out ISIS. It would be done much sooner if not for obama and hillary clinton’s establishing a new playground for ISIS.

As the Islamic State terror network loses territory across Iraq and Syria, analysts and experts assert that the terrorist outfit is increasingly capitalizing on the chaos of Libya, positioning the country as its point of resurgence.

The black-clad jihadist outfit is believed to be regrouping and recruiting in the rural regions south of the main east-to-west coastal highway and in the far-west town of Sabratha, which is poised just 60 miles from the Tunisian border, since being run out of its Libyan “caliphate” capital of Sirte late last year.

“The majority of their fighting force comes from Tunisia, so Sabratha is also a growing center,” prominent terrorism analyst Robert Young Pelton told Fox News. “ISIS in Libya can regenerate quickly.”

Col. Ahmed Almesmari, spokesperson for the self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA), told Fox News that ISIS first appeared in Libya at the end of 2013, even before its dominance in Iraq, borne out of “Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated militias” and Al Qaeda dissidents in Libya’s eastern port city of Derna near the Egyptian border.

And those attacks in Europe? Guess where the attackers were trained?

Manchester attacker Salman Abedi returned from Libya just days before he killed 22 people in the deadliest attack in Britain since 7/7, friends have revealed.

Up to 6,000 ISIS fighters are currently thought to operate out of dozens of camps around the country, which has become a popular destination for foreign radicals because it is easier to get into than Syria or Iraq.

The African nation has been a hotbed of ISIS activity since at least 2014, and while it is not known if Abedi was trained there, Sousse beach attacker Seifeddine Rezgui did visit Libyan camps before carrying out his own massacre in 2015.

Anis Amri, the Berlin truck attacker, is also thought to have had contact with people in training camps in Libya before his killing spree, though it is not clear if he actually went to the country.

Libya’s coast, located just across the Mediterranean from Italy, also provides the ideal staging point for attackers to be sent into Europe to carry out atrocities.

Jihadis capable of training such attackers have been flooding to Libya from Iraq and Syria as their stronghold of Mosul in Iraq falls to government troops, and their de-facto capital of Raqqa comes under threat.

American security services have been warning of the threat since ISIS first emerged in Libya, back in 2014, saying there were ‘several hundreds’ fighters entering training camps there at the time.

Initially, obama had no strategy for ISIS. In the end, he and hillary clinton had a terrible one that has lengthened the life of of a horrific organization.
