On Saturday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton again justified the 2011 U.S. policy of regime change in Libya, citing, at least in part, the fact that dictator Moammar Gadhafi had killed Americans.

“We have to continue to do what is necessary when someone like Gadhafi, a despot with American blood on his hands, is overturned,” Clinton said during the weekend’s Democratic presidential debate in Manchester, New Hampshire. “But I’ll tell you what would have happened if we had not joined with our European partners and our Arab partners to assist the people in Libya, you would be looking at Syria.”

Clinton made a similar point in a previous Democratic debate, when she asserted, “We had a murderous dictator, Gadhafi, who had American blood on his hands.”

But early in the administration, Clinton had championed an allegiance with the Libyan regime under Gadhafi, during a time when some of the major U.S. corporations doing business in Libya were also donating heavy sums to the Clinton Foundation.

In April 2009, Clinton met with the tyrant’s son, Mutassim Gadhafi, then Libya’s national security adviser, at the State Department and announced, “We deeply value the relationship between the United States and Libya.”
