The report from the House Benghazi Committee discloses a previously unknown but incredibly instructive footnote to the story of the Obama administration’s disastrous foreign policy toward Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi.

It was Gadhafi loyalists who rescued the Americans who bravely fought for their lives through the night of Sept. 11, 2012 against the Islamist onslaught on the Benghazi Mission compound.

The Salafi-jihadist Muslim Brotherhood-inspired groups – whom the U.S. trained, equipped and supported in overthrowing and assassinating Gadhafi – actively participated in the assault and murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

Why did former Gadhafi elements, who disappeared underground for fear of assassination after he fell, assist the same government that had betrayed them only months earlier?

Like their former boss, they understood the need to defeat the common Islamist enemy of the U.S. and Libya. Gadhafi warned me of the true threat to global stability when I met with him on three occasions during the 2000s.

The interim report from the Citizens Commission on Benghazi contains findings that do not look good for President Barack Obama or then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Sen. Barack Obama with Rev. Jeremiah Wright

JERUSALEM – As pressure mounts on the White House to intervene to stop Moammar Gadhafi’s bloody crackdown in Libya, many commentators have been wondering why Barack Obama has been cautious in his criticism of the dictator after the U.S. president so fervently supported the removal from office of U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak of Egypt.

But Gadhafi has been tied to Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s spiritual adviser for more than 23 years.

The Libyan dictator also has financed and strongly supported the Nation of Islam and its leader, Louis Farrakhan. Obama has ties to Farrakhan and his controversial group.

So far, White House officials have called for an end to the violence but have seemingly ruled out any unilateral action in Libya. Despite Gadhafi’s reported ordering of massacres that reportedly have killed hundreds of civilians in recent days, Obama hasn’t called on Gadhafi to leave office.
