Last week while she was visiting Libya, Hillary Clinton told an audience of students…
“We hope he [Gadhafi] can be captured or killed soon so that you don’t have to fear him any longer.”
She got her wish. Within days, Moammar Gadhafi was dragged out of a drain pipe like a common sewer rat, beaten by the people he’d terrorized for decades while they ignored his pleas for mercy (he’d taught them well), and put of out his misery with a bullet (or several) to the head.
There’s now debate over whether the rebels executed him on the spot, or he bled to death en route to the hospital. His body was seen in an ambulance by Holly Pickett, a freelance photojournalist.
You say tomato, I meow tomahto…
Hillary’s saying she backs a UN investigation into how it all went down.
Why? Who cares? Somebody offed the bad guy. He’s a national hero. You want to put HIM on trial?
You can’t have it both ways, Hillary. You wanted Gadhafi dead, so don’t start acting all concerned now about the circumstances. The world agreed he needed killing. It’s done.
It’s better than paying for his upkeep in prison for years while he just went crazier and used his trial as a stage to deny his greed and atrocities, claim he was still beloved by all, and just piss everybody off even more.
We all know that could only have ended with his execution.
So rather than miring the country for years in the phony game of “Justice for Gadhafi,” he’s history and they can begin RIGHT NOW to rebuild the country.
NATO and the UN should just let the sleeping dog lie.
