Highlight/Context

Thanks to Obama and Hillary Clinton’s overthrow of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, black Africans are now being sold in Libya at auction for $400 per person.
”The responsibility is on Barack Obama’s administration,” University of Texas professor, Alan J. Kuperman, said in an interview with Newsweek.

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.




Yahoo News:

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.
