The lie……..at the 2:38 mark the reporter states “And Wolf one of the reasons why the people there (at the refugee camps) are so afraid that a massacre could take place if Gaddafi forces do prevail is that they’re even shooting at humanitarian aid ships”
Note that earlier in the video all the refugees are black sub-saharan Africans.
It is now very well known that black africans who primarily came from sub-saharan poor countries to work in Libya due to the readily available oil work and irrigation jobs have now been hunted and slaughtered by US and NATO backed radical jihadist groups that were used to overthrow the country. The majority of Libyan refugee drowning deaths in the Mediterranean are black sub-saharan refugees attempting to flee the slaughter in NATO destabilized Libya. Being black in Libya right now is a death sentence due to the racist hateful views of the US backed radicals who saw the black workers as a threat to their own jobs when Gaddafi was in power. Once Gaddafi was removed it became hunting season on black refugees.

RACISM AND REVOLUTION: THE PLIGHT OF BLACK AFRICANS IN LIBYA
by Shaimaa Abul Hajj
Last Thursday as many as 350 migrants, mainly from sub-Saharan Africa, died as they tried to reach Italy by boat. But as the world continues to reel from the shock of the Lampedusa tragedy, the spotlight is turning towards Libya, the point of the boat’s departure. More than 30,000 migrants and refugees have arrived in Italy by sea this year alone, according to the United Nations – mainly from Libya.
What are they running from?
In their home countries, which are mainly Eritrea, Somalia and increasingly, Syria, the answer is conflict, repression and persecution. But Libya has also long been a base for guest workers from all over Africa who were attracted by its booming oil economy to find decent work. For years they were welcomed by Muammar Gaddafi, but now, many of those same migrants are scrambling to flee Libya’s instability and deadly discrimination.
As the second anniversary of the death of Gaddafi approaches, peace still eludes Libya.
Equal Times met with some of the black African migrants trying to survive in Libya.
A group of Sudanese immigrants close to the eastern border with Egypt told us that following the 2011 February revolution, armed Libyans went from door-to-door looking for ‘Africans’. “We were chased everywhere we went,” said J.Kawasili who originally comes from Somalia. “They said we supported Gaddafi and killed rebels and assaulted women.”
Kawasili says that he and the other migrants were forced to leave town and that while trying to escape, a 15-year-old Sudanese girl was raped by the rebels. He also says their identity documents were destroyed by the militia. The exact number of sub-Saharan African refugees, asylum seekers and economic migrants in Libya is unknown. However, some reports puts that figure at around 18,000.
Libya is the main point of departure for African migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea in order to reach Italy and other parts of southern Europe. But the Italian government, working with the European border agency Frontex, has been criticised for using harsh methods to try and stop the flow of migrants rather than trying to give the help that refugees are entitled to under international law. Methods include intercepting the small, fishing boats which carry them, while at sea, thus forcing them back to North Africa.

So to quickly put things into perspective, Muammar Gadaffi was supplying over 20,000 sub-saharan Africans with jobs and livelihood for a better life and once NATO overthrew the government by supporting radical jihadist groups those very same sub-saharan Africans were hunted and killed and made refugees, a large amount of which died by drowning on a perilous journey towards Europe by crossing the daunting Mediterranean Sea. In the above video from 2011, CNN states that those poor people (who have now most likely lost their lives) are in danger from being killed by Gaddafi, the man that provided them jobs and security. The outright lying by the CNN reporter is plain to see and now, 5 years later, the world knows what really happened in Libya. The US, UK, and French governments with the aid of their propaganda channels such as CNN and the BBC turned Libya into a hell on Earth, especially for black sub-saharan Africans.
Now let take a look at what Hillary Clinton knew about the summary executions of black skinned people in Libya…..
On New Year’s Eve, the State Department released 3,000 new Hillary Clinton emails from her tenure as secretary of state. While much of the corporate media dove into investigating pointless gossip, Brad Hoff at the Levant Report decided to look for more clues into understanding the epic failure that was the 2011 war on Libya by the US and NATO.
What Hoff discovered in the emails was Secretary Clinton being briefed by a trusted advisor, Sidney Blumenthal, on a events in Libya where Clinton’s public statements appear to contradict her private understanding. The issues range from the early presence of special forces and al Qaida-linked militants on the ground to the material motivations of France (gold, oil). And, of course, more evidence that Clinton knew the claims about Qaddafi issuing Viagra to troops for rapes were bogus. But, perhaps, the most troubling revelation is that Secretary Clinton was being explicitly told that the Libyan rebel forces were conducting racially charged massacres of black Africans under the rationale of labeling them “foreign mercenaries.”
In an email on March 27, 2011 [PDF], Blumenthal informs Secretary Clinton that a Libyan rebel commander told him that “his troops continue to summarily execute all foreign mercenaries captured in the fighting.” Summarily execute is a nice way of saying they are straight up killing anyone they see, who they think could be a “foreign mercenary.” So, you ask, how are the rebels determining who are (and are not) foreign mercenaries based merely on sight? The answer is based on the color of their skin. But the killings were not just cases of mistaken identity, they were part of a racial grudge connected to perceived favoritism by the Gaddafi government.
As the BBC reported in 2011, the war for the rebels extended to black Libyan civilians and sub-Saharan contract workers. The town of Tawergha, whose residents were descendants of black slaves, was “cleansed” by the rebels. The 30,000 people who lived in Tawergha were forced to flee, many unable to outrun the rebels and subjected to beatings, rape, and those summary executions Blumenthal mentioned.
A 2011 report from Human Rights Watch accuses rebels of terrorizing the people of Tawergha. After setting their homes on fire, the rebels captured the black Libyans and subjected them to “torture and severe beatings, sometimes leading to death.”

Another UK story related to the plight of black Africans in Libya:
A video that reportedly showing black Africans being forced to eat the former Libyan flag inside a cage by Libyan rebels has surfaced on the Internet.
In the following CNN video the reporter does recognize that a young dark skinned African man is being kidnapped, however, he leaves out the fact that the young man will most likely be killed by the US backed terrorists that took over the country.
It was Hillary Clinton who led the charge for the war in Libya and today she relies on the vote of African Americans in order to get into the US presidential office. I hope all people of all race and colors will recognize that the plight of black people did not matter one iota to Mrs, Hillary Clinton when it came to the war in Libya and its horrific blood soaked after shocks. Regarding Gaddafi who protected and helped black people, she simply laughed and stated “We came, we saw, he died”. Those are the words of a real sociopath, possibly a psychopath, whose direct actions led to the deaths of tens of thousands of innocent people. People who deserved better than to die in such a manner.
In 2011, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton led the charge by the Obama Administration to begin a military campaign in Libya. US and NATO forces helped Libyan rebels overthrow the government led by Muammar Gaddafi. The justification was to prevent a massacre that was supposedly imminent in Benghazi, Libya.
Clinton maneuvered behind the scenes to keep the NATO coalition together, as well as promote regime change as the ultimate goal. After the war, she claimed that “we set into motion a policy that was on the right side of history, on the right side of our values, on the right side of our strategic interests in the region.”
Gaddafi, who fled after the fall of his government, was eventually found, then tortured and killed by the rebels — something Clinton apparently found amusing when, in an interview with CBS News, she paraphrased Julius Caesar in regards to Gaddafi, chuckling “We came, we saw, he died.” Once again, Hillary Clinton had backed the violent overthrow of a government in the Middle East, and, once again, the results would ultimately be a nightmare for both the region and the US.

Watching the above videos should give anyone who supported Hillary Clinton serious pause for thought. Her claiming to care about the plight of dark skinned people is all a ploy. The videos and information above clearly show that her actions regarding the overthrow of the government of once stable Libya led to the deaths of tens of thousands of innocent and helpless dark skinned people.
