Mark my words, if President Trump declares a national emergency in order to build the wall, Democrats will say he does not have that right, but Obama did it, only much worse. President Trump is trying to make Americans safe, but when Obama did it, four Americans died. Obama declared an emergency in Libya.
Exactly, what strategic interest was this to the United States? None, but it was in the interest of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation and her best bud Sidney Blumenthal. As a result of Obama’s declaration, he armed ISIS fighters who killed Qadhafi, who had been supplying the Pentagon with valuable information for years. Libya has been suffering at the hands of the terrorists who got their weapons from Obama ever since.
Obama’s national emergency lasted his entire term and was renewed up through January of 2017, shortly before President Trump’s inauguration. Obama, in a letter to the House of Representatives, stated upon the 2017 renewal –
I have sent to the Federal Register for publication the enclosed notice stating that the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13566 of February 25, 2011, with respect to Libya is to continue in effect beyond February 25, 2017.
Colonel Muammar Qadhafi, his government, and close associates took extreme measures against the people of Libya, including by using weapons of war, mercenaries, and wanton violence against unarmed civilians. In addition, there was a serious risk that Libyan state assets would be misappropriated by Qadhafi, members of his government, members of his family, or his close associates if those assets were not protected. The foregoing circumstances, the prolonged attacks, and the increased numbers of Libyans seeking refuge in other countries caused a deterioration in the security of Libya, posed a serious risk to its stability, and led me to declare a national emergency to deal with this threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.
The Government of National Accord (GNA), which was established through the Libyan-led and U.N.-facilitated Libyan Political Dialogue, has sought to bolster its support in Libya but continues to face obstacles from spoilers and hardliners. The House of Representatives in eastern Libya, which the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA) stipulates should function as the GNA’s legislature, continues its attempts to compete with, rather than work with, the GNA. GNA-aligned forces, backed by air strikes and intelligence support from the U.S. military, successfully ousted the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) from Sirte; however, ISIL and other terrorist groups continue to pose a threat to Libyan stability as well as U.S. and allied interests outside Libya. Recent clashes between militias highlight the continued threat of violence in Libya and the potential for renewed fighting over the country’s resources, and we run the risk of further destabilization if sanctions do not remain in effect.
Many have said that the terrorists who attacked the Benghazi compound used weapons from the Obama provided weapon stockpile.
