Hillary’s Libya: The Second Time as Farce

Amidst the welter of commentary on Hillary Clinton’s June 2 foreign policy speech in which she allegedly eviscerated Donald Trump as the most unreliable leader since Caligula (projection?), I couldn’t avoid thinking of Karl Marx’s oft-quoted line from The 18th Brumaire of Louis Napoleon: “History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce.”

I’m no Marxist, but there’s no question the bearded Prussian inadvertently was accurately describing not Trump’s erratic remarks but Hillary Clinton’s actual outrageous actions regarding Libya when writing, in 1852, of Louis-Napoleon’s coup of the previous year.

    I listened to part of her speech and you could take every one of her supposed attacks at Trump and write a two page rebuttal against her like Mr. Simon did. The best one is when she said Trump wants to give Syria to isis, when that is what she tried to do running guns through Benghazi. It is going to be a long hot summer for Cruella de Vil .
