Beheading presidents: Chelsea Clinton is not laughing so much now

Hillary Clinton once famously said "We came, we saw, he died" cackling about the murder of Muammar Ghaddafi of Libya her country unleashed. But her daughter Chelsea for one, does not appreciate gags about killing presidents:

    US Sectretary of State Clinton was a key architect of the disastrous NATO intervention in Libya and a law professor considers her a war criminal under international law.

    ISIS terrorist invaders have ruled Libya since President Obama and Clinton conspired with NATO to forcibly remove Gaddafi from power in 2011. Clinton’s attack on Libya is the most serious of her many violations of the law.

    Beyond breaking US Federal law, her war on Libya left a trail of blood which continues to this day where ISIS beheadings of Christians have shocked the world. In February 2015, ISIS released a report in their online magazine Dabiq showing photos of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christian construction workers they had kidnapped in the city of Sirte, Libya, and beheaded. A caption in their gruesome, terrible video called the captives the “people of the cross”.

    US comedian Kathy Griffin confessed on Friday that she intended to “get in trouble” when she posed for a photo holding up a fake bloody severed head of President Donald Trump.

    So it came as no surprise when her employer CNN, the American public, and the First Family as well as the US Secret Service interpreted it as a death threat targeting the president.

    At a press conference defending herself from the powerful political backlash as a result of her “joke”, Griffin who had been caught on tape, had to admit that she had planned to get in trouble all along: “It was the end of the day, we’d been doing all these silly photos, and I said, as I said on the tape, ‘Alright, let’s get in trouble. Let’s give them something to talk about.’”

    But even Chelsea Clinton could find nothing to cackle about in an image similar to the real Mohammed Emwazi, the British national known by the pseudonym “Jihadi John”, who was seen in several videos showing the beheading of Islamic State hostages.

    Griffin’s idea of “joking” about ISIS-like beheadings was not very original either. German news magazine Der Spiegel sparked controversy in February this year with a cover depicting US President Donald Trump holding the severed head of the Statue of Liberty in one hand and a bloodied knife in the other.

    “On our cover the American president beheads the symbol which has welcomed migrants and refugees to the United States since 1886, and with democracy and freedom,” Spiegel’s chief editor Klaus Brinkbaeumer explained to German news agency DPA.

    But speaking to Bild, the vice-president of the European Parliament, Alexander Graf Lambsdorff of Germany’s liberal Free Democrats, slammed the image which “plays on the lives of terror victims in a very nasty manner”.

    The US administration’s support of terrorism which has spread from Libya, is perhaps best summarized by the 2007 report “The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” written by Seymour Hersh, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist in the New Yorker.

    The US State Department itself would admit that Al Qaeda’s Syrian franchise, Jabhat al-Nusra, an offshoot of ISIS, was among the most prominent armed militant groups fighting the Syrian government. In an official press statement titled, “Terrorist Designations of the al-Nusrah Front as an Alias for al-Qa’ida in Iraq,” it stated so explicitly.

    According to Francis Anthony Boyle, a professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law, with a degree magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, and A.M. and Ph.D. degrees in Political Science from Harvard University: “Obama’s unconstitutional war against Libya, violated the War Powers clause of the Constitution, and the War Powers resolution of 1973. And Obama even sent up his lawyer, Harold Koh, now back teaching at the Yale Law School with the other war criminals on that faculty, to justify it. And his justification, even Speaker Boehner said, did not pass the straight-face test.”

    In the early 1990s, Boyle represented Colonel Gaddafi at the World Court in a successful legal case which restrained the United States and Britain from taking military action against Libya.
