The US policy, aimed at the creation of a coalition to topple Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who was then brutally murdered, was the right decision, US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said, speaking at a security forum, organized by the nonpartisan Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America on September 7.

“We were able to save lives [in Libya] we did not lose a single American in that action,” Clinton said. “Taking that action was the right decision,” she stressed.

According to Clinton, who served as US secretary of state under President Barack Obama in 2011, the “saved lives” would have been taken by the long-time Libyan leader, if he had reestablished his authority. For this reason, the US called on France and the UK to support rebels, seeking to dethrone Gaddafi in Libya.

Speaking about the Iraq war, Clinton accepted responsibility for her decision to support the US military campaign, while she was a Senator. However, the US Democratic presidential candidate noted that she had previously admitted her regret over the decision.

“We are not putting ground troops into Iraq ever again,” Clinton said.

The candidate also stressed that she does not support the idea of placing any US ground troops in Syria in order to strengthen the fight against the Islamic State (IS) terrorists in the country.

Clinton’s policies as the US secretary of state from 2009 to 2013 has been criticized for spread of the IS and deterioration of the situations in Iraq and Libya by US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

A US-led coalition, made up of more than 60 nations, has been conducting airstrikes against the IS in Iraq and Syria since 2014.

    Clinton is an abismal human being. A pyschopathic degenerate that should be done for crimes against humanity.

    She would still consider what was done in Libya the right choice for her and her bosses at the privately owned “federal” reserve. Ghadaffi had been working toward the launch of the gold dinar and was planning to start using the dinar in the oil trade. That would have hurt the petro dollar scheme and the western banking cartel so couldn’t be allowed. The gold which was to be used for this purpose has since disappeared. Even as nato is invading again the Libyan parliament has had a vote of no confidence in the so called “unity government” backed by the un and forced onto the Libyan people.
