"Barack Obama recently said that his biggest blunder was 'failing to plan for the day after' his intervention in Libya. While he defended the intervention itself, the president cannot deny that his reckless war has had disastrous consequences, including a growing ISIS presence in Libya. Hillary Clinton eagerly pressured the president to overthrow Moammar Gaddafi. Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates recalls that, 'The president told me that it was one of the closest decisions he'd ever made, sort of 51-49, and I'm not sure that he would've made that decision if Secretary Clinton hadn't supported it.' After overthrowing Gaddafi, Clinton proclaimed triumph, saying 'We came. We saw. He died.' The U.S. intervention killed a dictator, but it certainly didn’t bring freedom or security to Libya."
