As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

State Department: Stay out of Libya

Well, looks like things are working out great in the wake of our Libya adventure.

The State Department has issued a “travel warning” telling Americans not to go┬áto Libya and advising those who are there to RUN FOR YOUR LIVES.

From the bulletin:

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against all travel to Libya and recommends that U.S. citizens currently in Libya depart immediately. Due to security concerns, the Department of State has limited staffing at Embassy Tripoli and is only able to offer very limited emergency services to U.S. citizens in Libya.

The security situation in Libya remains unpredictable and unstable. The Libyan government has not been able to adequately build its military and police forces and improve security following the 2011 revolution. Many military-grade weapons remain in the hands of private individuals, including antiaircraft weapons that may be used against civilian aviation.

Crime levels remain high in many parts of the country. In addition to the threat of crime, various groups have called for attacks against U.S. citizens and U.S. interests in Libya. Extremist groups in Libya have made several specific threats this year against U.S. government officials, citizens, and interests in Libya.

Now if I’m thinking, if I were an Islamist terrorist in need of some decent training, would I travel to Libya or Syria now, or wait until 2016 and go to Afghanistan?

  1. Even with our most powerful military, our govt. wouldn’t protect our own embassy people there.
    This is not the way it should be… And wasn’t obama’s speech yesterday at West Point a buncha hooey? Wonder how “inspired” our cadets were afterward. He has no clue of history or understanding our of military.He even seems to have lost the joy of his personal drone killing game he once delighted in. What an awful train wreck of a President he is.

    • His entire childhood and teen years were spent either out of the country entirely or in Hawaii where he was spoiled and coddled by grandparents and mentored by the likes of Frank Marshall Davis.
      Obama is as “American” as Putin.

      • How can ‘Barack Hussein Obam’ become a “US Senator” & “US President” with NO NATIONAL SECURITY BACKGROUND CHECKS…
        -Did ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ ever fill out/pass a “SF-86” form…???

        I am a USN Vet, and because of life/health issues I could never pass a “SF-86”

  2. This mess of a country is all on us, all the result of a clueless, stupid administration following a loony leftist with no experience in foreign affairs. The Obama foreign policy of what should be is the most dangerous and naively destructive approach to a dangerous world.

  3. Not to mention we have a Marine sitting in jail in Mexico for making a wrong turn. Any other P would be on the phone to have him released ASAP.
    A far as the West Point issue. I have never served in the Military. However the pride I have in the relatives who have served, I could have given a better speech.
    What he should have had the guts to say as well is. By the way Cadets I am going to cancel my concussion subject planned for tomorrow and get to the bottom of fixing the VA issue ASAP.
    Also Ol Gator mention the Embassy, He should have had the guts, and leadership to state: I am going to get to the bottom of that issue as well.

  4. Keith, your last sentence says it all.
    What a mess we are in!
    Yesterday’s insult to our West Point Cadets was the last straw.

  5. People have forgotten that aside from her role in Benghazi, Hillary Clinton took a very active role in ousting Kaddafi and installing the insurgents. Paraphrasing Julius Caesar, she said “We came, we saw, he died.” And, boy, didn’t he die in the most horrible manner. Not to take his side–he was a rotten man–but we had established a relationship with him and then abandoned him to people who have turned out to be more rotten than he was. It’s way too late for the State Department to act in some sort of a protective role of US citizens and for us to forget all that went on before.

    • Hillary’s gloating over the torture, sodomizing and brutal death of a former head of state – even one as evil as Muammar Gaddafi – was disgustingly unprofessional, but typical of Barry’s regime.
