Jeb: Removing Gaddafi ‘Was A Good Thing’ But US Didn’t Engage To Create Stability Afterwards

GOP presidential candidate former Florida Governor Jeb Bush argued that removing Muammar Gaddafi from power in Libya “was a good thing for the world” but that there was a failure to create stability after he was removed on Friday’s “Sean Hannity Show.”

Jeb began by criticizing President Obama’s and Democratic candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s handling of Iraq, accusing the president of playing politics with Iraq and Hillary of outsourcing Iraq to others. He continued that current actions against ISIS are “all incremental” actions designed to “run out the clock.”

He further stated, “Taking out Gaddafi was a good thing for the world for sure, but not engaging to create stability in Libya in the aftermath now has created a[n] ungovernable state.”
