This is from a story in the Atlantic back in April of 2016. Remember? No? Huh. Wonder why nobody remembers. Maybe because the press and the Democrats and the Republicans didn’t think telling the truth about shithole countries was a big deal:
“So we actually executed this plan as well as I could have expected: We got a UN mandate, we built a coalition, it cost us $1 billion — which, when it comes to military operations, is very cheap. We averted large-scale civilian casualties, we prevented what almost surely would have been a prolonged and bloody civil conflict. And despite all that, Libya is a mess.
Mess is the president’s diplomatic term; privately, he calls Libya a “shit show,” in part because it’s subsequently become an ISIS haven — one that he has already targeted with air strikes. It became a shit show, Obama believes, for reasons that had less to do with American incompetence than with the passivity of America’s allies and with the obdurate power of tribalism.”
But now that they’ve got nothing vis-a-vis Russia-collusion, they’ve got to manufacture phony remarks, courtesy of Little Dick…Durbin, in order to somehow paint Trump as a racist. Even then the logical leap is chasmatic – how the Democrats can justify conflating culture with race reveals them as stark, raving lunatics.
