Report: Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton Deserves Credit For Gaddafi Ouster

On Fox News’ America’s Newsroom this morning, reporter David Piper, tuning in from Tripoli, shared that some people “in the know” are suggesting that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton played a vital role in the eventual capture of ousted — and now deceased — Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

A European diplomat has come forward to share that it was Clinton who held the NATO alliance together as French mirage jets flew over Libya. It seems that the Italians, he added, had been particularly upset over that course of action.

As for what Gaddafi’s death might mean for the future of Libya’s relationship to the United States: It probably couldn’t be as bad than, say, having the U.S. embassy firebombed under Gaddafi’s watch, opined Piper. That said, it is certain that Libya will be a “very different place.”
