Is Libya Now a Terrorist Stronghold?

(Worthy News) - CIA chieftains were caught off guard by the spiraling Islamic violence in postwar Libya, suddenly realizing that analysts had never brainstormed what the country would look like and that the White House had not asked.

The agency also acknowledged in a classified report that Moammar Gadhafi, Libya’s U.S.-deposed dictator, had long suppressed a variety of radical Islamic groups, including al Qaeda, from taking root in his country and endangering North Africa.

Today, absent Gadhafi’s iron fist since October 2011, Libya is in a civil war and has become a coveted destination for Islamic extremists, including the Islamic State in and around Benghazi. Based in Syria and Iraq, the Islamic State boasts its largest franchise in Libya, where it wants to destabilize a fledgling democratic government in the capital of Tripoli and export terrorism. President Obama, who approved the intervention, has called Libya a “mess.” [ Source ]

  1. "CIA chieftains" but out the other side of his Janus face Obama warns both the US and UK not to fall prey to "the nativism" of Trump and "Brexiteers."
    (I think I actually like this his newest invention; "Brexiteers," there's an idea).

    Our world has been devolving into tribalisms for decades now, not just in the countries now ISIS strongholds. It's more than nationalisms, or theocracies. Christianity's own Hebrew Roots movement trying to revive the faith of our Father, and Messianic Judaism giving them once more Hope, is nothing less. Tribalism is biblical. It's which tribe that matters. Do we follow the Lion of Judah, nor not? It becomes as simple as that.
