Clare Lopez of the Center for Security Policy, a member of the Benghazi Citizen’s Commission and former CIA intelligence officer, exposes Benghazi as a complete national security disaster resulting from the lack of leadership from President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
In part one, Lopez explains in simple detail exactly how the United States, led by Clinton, aligned itself with the Muslim Brotherhood in a way that defies common sense and basic principles of foreign policy. The United West presents this three-part series as a national security context to better understand the blockbuster Hollywood movie,“13 Hours, the Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.“
Central to Lopez’s geopolitical views is her strong demonization of Islam. “Shi’ite and Sunni are doomed to internecine combat over the centuries because both Islamic sects are bound to an ideology based on dominance, not good faith mutual concessions or participatory collaboration,” she wrote in a 2013 attempt to explain sectarian violence in the Middle East. “The name of this power-obsessed ideology is Islam.” She added, “With assassination, banditry, genocide, hatred-of-other, polygamy, rape, pillage, and slavery all divinely sanctioned in scriptures believed to be revealed by Allah himself, the world is not likely to see an end to Islam’s ‘bloody borders’ or ‘bloody innards’ any time soon.”
