    February 2, 2015—Truth is the first casualty in war, but in Libya it’s resurrecting. There was never any evidence to support President Obama’s and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s claims to oust the Muammar Gaddafi government in Libya.

    Just released audio tapes reveal the hurry to war was all propaganda. Pentagon and Congressional personnel privy to reality worked in secret to prevent the U.S. intervention in Libya that lasted over seven months.

    From the article at the Washington Times:

    “It was an intelligence-light decision,” said one senior U.S. intelligence official directly familiar with the Libyan matter, who spoke to The Washington Times only on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to reporters.

    The official’s sentiments were echoed by nearly a dozen other key players inside the intelligence and military communities who described to The Times a frustrating period during which the concerns of senior military leaders, including Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen, were repeatedly cast aside.

    Speculative arguments often trumped reporting from the ground, the officials added.

    Dubbed “Hillary’s War,” the 2011 Libya intervention garnered bipartisan support from pro-war elements in Congress. But then there was Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH). Coordinating in secret with the Pentagon, Kucinich and an emissary met and spoke with Libyan government officials. From the Washington Times article:

    “It was like the WMDs in Iraq. It was based on a false report,” Seif Gadhafi, the son of the Libyan leader, said in a May 2011 phone call with Mr. Kucinich. “Libyan airplanes bombing demonstrators, Libyan airplanes bombing districts in Tripoli, Libyan army killed thousands, etc., etc., and now the whole world found there is no single evidence that such things happened in Libya.”
