Thanks, Obama! The people of Libya are trying to get rid of the militias, but the government has been unable to stop them, as they have gotten stronger. Just as in Syria, Libya is bordering on becoming an al-Qaeda state. All traced back to the great “diplomacy” of Obama’s killing of Gaddafi.
BENGHAZI, LIBYA — Every week, about a dozen Syrians arrive at Benghazi’s airport for what’s described as insurgent training. When they fly out, they’re carrying fake Libyan passports, according to three officials familiar with the comings and goings of foreigners at the airport.
The accounts of the officials, who asked to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the topic, are more evidence that this city in Libya has become a regional hub for Islamist extremists seeking to hone their combat skills.
Fighters from Tunisia and Algeria also are thought to be training here, driving across Libya’s borders to reach Benghazi, the birthplace of the uprising that, with NATO’s help, toppled Moammar Gadhafi two years ago. But the Syrians’ routine arrival and departure by air indicates that the training process is better organized and financed than had been realized.
