Gaddafi and Obama: One of them was fighting Islamist terrorists in Libya

Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi warned the West about the Islamic extremists in the months before his murder by a mob.  In a series of phone calls, Gaddafi told Britain’s ex-prime minister, Tony Blair, that the Libyan unrest was because of “[a] campaign of colonization; we have to defy the colonization.”

And he predicted that after North Africa was overtaken, the radical Islamists would go after Europe.  Gaddafi’s words are now reality.

This warning is contained in the transcripts of calls between Blair and Gaddafi in February 2011.  Gaddafi died a horrible death in October of that year.  

In the transcripts released by the U.K. government, Blair is trying to get Gaddafi to have a peaceful transition – to “[e]ngage in a process that brings about peaceful change.”

Gaddafi tells him, “The al-Qaeda elements are not for change – this is not their demand. ... Europe and the whole world these armed groups are using the situation as justification – and we shall fight them.”

“Those people are from Guantanamo, we know them by name, they support al-Qaeda.”

U.S. President Obama met Gaddafi in 2009. shaking his hand at the G-8 Summit in Italy. 

One cannot help but wonder if Gaddafi warned Obama, too.  Even if Gaddafi didn’t warn Obama, as president of the U.S. with all the listening and surveillance on even our allies, surely Gaddafi’s warnings to Blair would have reached Obama’s ears.  And yet Obama continued to feed the Islamic serpent, as Paul Schnee so adroitly stated in these American Thinker pages.

Not only does he feed the serpent, but Obama is actively pushing to bring the serpents here.  Gaddafi’s warning is ignored.  Women are raped all over Europe in an orgy of horror unseen in the West, and this too is ignored.  (Hello, Rolling Stone Magazine.)

Not only bringing the serpent to our shores, Obama wants to disarm us.  His tear shed over gun violence was every bit as sincere as the tear shed in the movie Broadcast News by the unethical reporter who went on to become the network anchor.  Obama has gone on to become president of the United States with all the sincerity of a movie character. 

Obama appeared on Jay Leno’s show October 26, 2011, less than a week after Gaddafi’s death.  Obama took up the subject:

Nudged by Leno in a notably sober first segment, Mr Obama reflected on the meaning of Gaddafi's death, a gruesome and chaotic demise recorded on cellphone video for all the world to see. The president argued that Gaddafi had had an opportunity to let Libya move on a path toward democracy peacefully.

"He wouldn't do it," Mr Obama said. "And, obviously, you never like to see anybody come to the kind of end that he did, but I think it obviously sends a strong message around the world to dictators that people long to be free, and they need to respect the human rights and the universal aspirations of people."

Knowing now that Gaddafi was battling those Obama let out of Guantanamo, and other radical Islamists, Obama’s words have a distinct chill to them.  There is some sort of braggadocio about his words – almost as though he’s warning others to bow to his will or face the same end as Gaddafi.  “Path toward democracy peacefully”?  Obama hasn’t helped one nation on a “path toward democracy,” and certainly not peacefully.  The world is in utter chaos since his elevation.

I could never quite figure out why we bombed Libya.  Now I understand.  Gaddafi was fighting the serpent.  Obama is feeding the serpent, and we’re on the menu.  Thank God for the 2nd Amendment.
