Gingrich: U.S. At War With Libya

Gingrich: U.S. At War With Libya
UPI
Terrorists attacked the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

In a scathing rebuke of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, former House Speaker and failed Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich described the events in Benghazi, Libya, and other U.S. consulates throughout the Arab world last week as acts of war.

Responding to Obama’s speech following the news of the murder of the U.S. ambassador to Libya in which he described the deadly Libya protest as a “senseless act of violence,” Gingrich writes in a recent op-ed:

These are not acts of senseless violence.

These are acts of war.

Our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were not killed by a senseless mob. They were killed by a purposeful group of men armed with sophisticated weapons. These killers had tracked Ambassador Chris Stevens down to the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, where he was much more vulnerable to attack and had less protection. They waged a coordinated, military-style assault.

Our four dead are combat casualties as much as anyone in Iraq or Afghanistan.

While American involvement in the overthrow of the Libyan government took place without much fanfare, the United States is definitely at war with Libya. Experts agree that it is the same type of endless military conflict in which the Nation has been entangled for the past decade in Afghanistan.
