For eight years, Barack Obama ravaged this country.
He was perhaps the worst President of all time.
And one shocking video that just came out is sure to prove that and destroy his legacy for good.
Newly released videos of men and women being sold as a part of the slave trade in Libya are making experts question Obama’s role in the instability of North Africa.
It was six years ago that he ordered an intervention there, and many are blaming the overthrow of Gaddafi for causing the situation there to deteriorate to this point.
Obama actually somewhat agrees, stating that the overthrow of Gaddafi was the “worst mistake” of his presidency.
And experts agree.
Alan J. Kuperman, associate professor at the University of Texas at Austin stated:
“The responsibility is on Barack Obama’s administration . . . He made the decision to overthrow Gaddafi.”
As reported by Newsweek:
“Videos of men and women being sold in Libya have led experts to question the role the Obama administration played in the North African country’s instability six years after the president ordered an intervention there.
Obama has called the aftermath of the 2011 intervention, when Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown, the “worst mistake” of his presidency—and some experts agree.
“The responsibility is on Barack Obama’s administration,” Alan J. Kuperman, associate professor at the University of Texas at Austin, told Newsweek. “He made the decision to overthrow Gaddafi.”
Human rights violations—including the Libyan slave trade revealed in a CNN investigation—are a result of U.S. interference, according to some experts. CNN released a video of migrants being sold for about $400 in an auction, though there have been accounts of slaves being sold for as little as $200.
The U.S., as part of a coalition with NATO, launched an operation in Libya in 2011, hoping to save civilians in Benghazi, Libya, who were targeted by Gaddafi’s forces and prevent the “wholesale massacres of innocent civilians.” Protesters inspired by the Arab Spring took to the streets in Libya against Gaddafi, who later sent planes to bomb them.
Kuperman said the overthrowing and killing of Gaddafi led to many of the problems Libya is dealing with today, including the slave trade and its unraveling into a failed state.
“When you break a state and then don’t stick around to rebuild it, you create a failed state,” the professor, who has written several papers on Libya, said. “I’m not sure the worst thing going on in Libya is the slave trade.””
The video of men and women being sold in Libya has been going viral online.
Check out the video here:
The overthrow of Gaddafi in Libya made their situation much worse.
Not only did he overthrow him, but after doing so, and breaking up the state, Obama refused to stick around and rebuild it.
The slave trade is just one of the many problems, and this video is highlighting it.
But some experts, like Professor Kuperman, believe the slave trade might not be the worst thing going on in Libya.
Do you agree that the issues in Libya are Obama’s fault?
