Judge Napolitano: US Military Strikes in Libya 'Unlikely' Based on Secretary of State Clinton's Statements
Judge Andrew Napolitano sat down with Fox and Friends to analyze the situation in the Middle East.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday the attack that killed US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three of his American staff members was committed by a "small and savage group," not the government of Libya.
Judge Napolitano pointed out
that Clinton has a political interest in not blaming the Libyan government.
"She encouraged the president to bomb Libya, to rid the country of the dictator Qaddafi... appointed the ambassador and permitted the people to come in who now run the government of Libya. They are not pro-Western, they are not pro-American," he said.
"If she's right (that the government was not involved) then as horrific as this is - under the law, it is not an act of war. That doesn't mean we can't defend our property, it doesn't mean we can't pursue the people who did it. But it does mean it would be unlikely that the United States government would use the military to attack military targets in Libya."
