US Africa commander nominee: No 'grand strategy' to confront ISIS in Libya




The general tapped to lead U.S. Africa Command told Capitol Hill lawmakers Tuesday he did not know of any “overall grand strategy” to defeat ISIS in Libya. Marine Lt. Gen. Thomas D. Waldhauser made the comments under questioning from Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain, R-Ariz. “I am not aware of any overall grand strategy at this point,” Waldhauser said

It's whatever, you know? They're the JV team! They're contained! Who cares? What difference does it make?

There's been no real strategy to defeat [redacted] period, at best a strategy to contain them and limit their gains of new territory. Just an opinion on the obvious. They essentially handed Libya over to [omitted] after the fall of Gaddafi. Benghazi may have been one of their first coordinated and organized attack on Americans. We didn't help Libya to be liberated we handed it over to radical [omitted] terrorists...

imo

Maybe its true.

The war on terror was a hoax from the start and their goal and focus is Russia. I dont know but the way they arent using war on terror is just so clear.

Just my opinion.

Remember, the desire was to destabilize Libya, not improve it. The more infighting and killing going on the harder the struggle just to survive, the less people there will unify against their new overlords in NATO.

Al that talk of saving the people, remember that, deposing a brutal dictator, remember that?

Look, listen, learn.

Russia and the USA have been covertly and overtly involved on opposing sides in that region for a long time. Proxy wars.

If there was a "grand strategy", why in the hell do people expect him to reveal it in a public hearing (or even admit that there is one)?

There's "loose lips sink ships", and then there's downright retardation.

Well duh,

Isn't Obama's grand strategy to aid and abet ISIS, cause chaos in Libya, and enable certain corporate interests to run the Nabucco pipeline to Europe?

Seems ISIS is integral to the Grand Strategy of preventing the competing 'Friendship pipeline' from reaching Europe.

So Obama got a Nobel peace prize for supporting the murder of Khadaffy and turning Libya into a failed state causing untold suffering, leading the US policy that created ISIS and then shrinking from his duty to ameliorate these US created disasters

Distorts the reality of the problem by refusing to label the perpetuators of terrorism and murder for what they are and lastly deceiving the American people that he is a principled person while at the same time having caused this disastrous policy:

Obama-led drone strikes kill innocents 90% of the time: report


Drone strikes conducted by the United States during a 5-month-long campaign in Afghanistan caused the deaths of unintended targets nearly nine out of ten times, leaked intelligence documents suggest.

Yet at the time I’m sure they were delighted for help in destroying their country to get rid of Muammar and have ISIS and the other petty warlords ruin their country


The US plays the role of Satan to these stupid, backward ME war mongers and war lords who all think their Saladin come back to life

Libya and Benghazi were the launching pads for ISIS across Iraq and Syria.
They didn't care what happened to the country afterwards.. there were bigger plans in motion.

Now that Obama's effectively a seat warmer until the election, everything's going into a state of hibernation.

Hillary must win the election at all costs, there's a plan already agreed upon for Syria, Libya, Turkey, Iraq.... Its a continuation of the plans set in motion by Bush.

The Saudi's, Turkey, Big Banks, The military industrial complex, the Media.. they are all doing everything they can to ensure Hillary wins the election so the plans can be put into motion!

Hilary might not do it as brash as Bush did, but if she wins.. prepare for 8 years of absolute mayhem and turmoil.
