Obama blamed for Libyan slave trade as shocking video goes viral

Former President Barack Obama has come under criticism after a series of videos showing men and women being sold in a renewed slave trade have gone viral in recent weeks.

Some critics have begun questioning how much the Obama administration contributed to the problem with its 2011 intervention in Libya. Obama has acknowledged the issue before, calling it the “worst mistake” of his presidency.

But as videos showing humans being sold into slavery shocks people around the world, the scrutiny has been renewed.

“The responsibility is on Barack Obama’s administration,” University of Texas professor, Alan J. Kuperman, said in an interview with Newsweek.

The United States launched an operation in Libya with NATO in 2011 in an attempt to save civilians who were targeted to be massacred by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.

Kuperman claims overthrowing Gadhafi led to many of the failed nation’s issues, including the slave trade.

An investigation from CNN showed migrants being sold for as little as $400 at auction. Thousands of immigrants have fled Libya for Europe in an attempt to escape violence and instability.

Since 2014, 22,500 migrants have died or disappeared according to the International Organization for Migration.

President Trump has been accused of waffling on his position on the U.S. intervention in Libya, but he did share one prophetic thought on the matter in a tweet in 2011.

“As bad as Qaddafi was—what comes next in Libya will be worse—just watch,” he said at the time.

The “Arab Spring” was fomented on purpose by Obama, Clinton and the powers that be for the purpose of destabilizing the region. This caused a predictable power vacuum which led to the formation of the ISIS Caliphate, on purpose. During their reign of terror, ISIS was making over a billion dollars a year selling black market oil from the Iraqi oil fields. Many of the ISIS Jihadi’s have now dispersed out of the caliphate, having received training, weapons, fake IDs and money. There is another chapter of their terrorism yet to unfold. Ask yourself, what kind of weapons could they… Read more »

Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton and John Kerry are responsible for the loss of hundreds of thousands of lives during their tenure due to their reluctance to lead (not from behind) and to act forcefully. The damage that was done to the position and prestige of the United States will not be rebuilt for decades.
