CLASH POLL: Should Trump Make HILLARY Our Ambassador To LIBYA?

Is it time for Trump to stop talking about ‘locking her up’ and instead give her a sweet deal as an Ambassador?

She could be right there, on the ground, and know if there were ‘terrorists’ or a ‘spontaneous protest about a YouTube video’.

Hillary doesn’t regret her position on Libya:

…[I]n speaking with Clinton’s closest aides and advisors, it’s clear that she has already formulated a detailed defense. Clinton, they say, does not see the Libya intervention as a failure, but as a work in progress. The key lesson she has drawn from Libya is not that the United States should always avoid intervention or steer clear from the Middle East altogether, but that it needs to deepen its commitment to the region and find longer-term ways to engage with it. Whether or not the American public accepts that argument, it has clearly shaped Clinton’s present thinking on foreign policy.

On the campaign trail, Clinton has not shied from defending her decision to support the intervention that toppled dictator Muammar al-Qaddafi. “I think President Obama made the right decision at the time,” she said in the first Democratic debate in October as she pointed to the 2012 General Assembly elections in which Libyans voted mostly for moderate parties

But that answer focused on the more promising days of 2012 – before the killing of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and the country’s descent into civil war. We are now, of course, in 2016. How does Clinton make sense of what went wrong in Libya in the years since she left the State Department? Her answer to that question is one of the keys to understanding how she will approach the Middle East if she makes it to the White House.

“[The Republicans] are going to make a big effort to suggest that the current instability in Libya reflects on the secretary,” one Clinton campaign aide told me. “But the secretary feels confident … people will see that her decision-making and her leadership helped save us from a scenario where it could have come become another Syria.”

The last part of that statement raises a key question: Are Clinton aides saying that Obama should have intervened in Syria?

Trump has said that her actions in the Middle East as Secretary of State made her a ‘co-founder of ISIS’.
Documents released under FOIA requests show that Obama and Hillary knew that their actions would disrupt the Middle East.

WikiLeaks showed that Hillary armed ISIS.

Hillary built that!

Should she live there now?

Share if you think Hillary should live in Benghazi, because, after all, ‘What difference, at this point, does it make?’
