Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi's regime.The president is coming before the American people and congress to explain himself on Monday night. I for one am interested to see adn hear just how he intends to justify American intervention in a civil war in Libya. I'd also like to hear him explain how and why his secretary of defense seems to be inspiring the same in Syria and other Arab nations.
In an interview with the Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, Mr al-Hasidi admitted that he had recruited "around 25" men from the Derna area in eastern Libya to fight against coalition troops in Iraq. Some of them, he said, are "today are on the front lines in Adjabiya".
Mr al-Hasidi insisted his fighters "are patriots and good Muslims, not terrorists," but added that the "members of al-Qaeda are also good Muslims and are fighting against the invader".
In a little over two years, Barack Obama has literally allowed the middle east to be set ablaze and in the end, the entire region will be made into a unified militant base of operations for continued strikes and terrorism against America.
Someone mentioned fundamental change? Well this is only part of it. The impact and aftermath that will be felt in America for generations is incalculable.
