“America is now at war to protect a Libyan province that’s been an epicenter of anti-American jihad”
“Obama’s bombing of Libya is aiding the jihadists. Confirmation from an unlikely source of what I wrote here. “U.S. Bombs Libya, Helps… Jihadists?!,” by Tim Dickinson in Rolling Stone (of all places), March 21:
America is now at war to protect a Libyan province that’s been an epicenter of anti-American jihad.
In recent years, at mosques throughout eastern Libya, radical imams have been “urging worshippers to support jihad in Iraq and elsewhere,” according to WikiLeaked cables. More troubling: The city of Derna, east of Benghazi, was a “wellspring” of suicide bombers that targeted U.S. troops in Iraq.”
“A surprisingly readable cable titled “Die Hard in Derna” makes clear that the city “takes great pride” in having sent so many of its sons to kill American soldiers in Iraq, quoting one resident as saying: “It’s jihad — it’s our duty, and you’re talking about people who don’t have much else to be proud of.”
