This isn’t what we’re told of course. But it is sadly all too true. And the military industrial complex likes the “progressives” right back.
Another one of those “no biggie” moments we’re all getting so used to.
(From The Washington Examiner)
For example, one email Clinton kept from the State Department indicates Libyan leaders were “well aware” of which “major oil companies and international banks” supported them during the rebellion, information they would “factor into decisions” about about who would be given access to the country’s rich oil reserves.
The email, which Clinton subsequently scrubbed from her server, indicated Clinton was aware that involvement in the controversial conflict could have a significant financial benefit to firms that were friendly to the Libyan rebels.
The New York Times reports on the the dealings of one Sidney Blumenthal, Bill Clinton White House confidant, who saw dollars to be made in a post Qaddafi Libya. He was advising Secretary of State Clinton at the time. (In an unofficial capacity.)
Mr. Blumenthal (it appears) was looking to cash in on his relationship with Ms. Clinton.
Not many fortunes made in Libya, aside from Qaddafi’s. Looks like Blumenthal learned this.
And let’s be real honest. They aren’t just lapdogs for Obama. They are lapdogs for Sheldon Adelson (Graham’s new sponsor) the billionaire head of Las Vegas Sands who hates Rand Paul and Paul’s father and anyone else who thinks that aid to Israel isn’t sacrosanct.
By the way, here’s a cute little picture of John McCain and Lindsey Graham, the 2 guys who say that Rand Paul is naive on matters of foreign policy,
It’s good to have friends in the State Department, particularly if that friend is Hillary Clinton. It’s also good to have friends in the shadowy underworld of private international intel, particularly if that friend is Sidney Blumenthal – apparently. Remember him from the 90s?
Good for 60 Minutes. Maybe there are still some real journalists out there in the #oldmedia.
Tony Blair used visits to Libya after he left office to lobby for business for JP Morgan.
