... from the Washington Post. Which should be all one needs to know about the foundation upon which the adulation builds.
See "Clinton credited with key role in success of NATO airstrikes, Libyan rebels."
To be fair, if one judges Ms. Clinton's accomplishment solely on the basis of her achieving the simple goal of ousting Moammar Gaddafi, then she certainly deserves credit. She said we should, she applied our considerable might to the task, and Gaddafi is gone.
Problem is, nobody can tell us - even Ms. Hillary "Jack Bauer" Clinton - why it is we singled out Moammar Gaddafi for extermination.
Because he was a bad guy?
In a world chock full of bad guys?
Because of the human misery that was being inflicted upon the people of Libya?
Did she send the 101st Airborne to Darfur, or did I miss that righting of wrongs?
Why did the United States of America invade Libya?
The best they can come up with? Gaddafi threatened to kill rebels in Bengazi - "like rats."
So we killed his followers ... like rats.
And Gaddafi was summarily snuffed.
She did what she said she was going to do. No mistake about that.
Meanwhile, the body count is still being tallied. And her rebel army is still hunting down Libyan loyalists. Like rats.
Let's all cheer Hillary's remarkable ... success.
