ISIS savages have shot to death and beheaded Christians in Libya in two separate batches of executions. And what comment about this has been made by President Obama -- who in 2011 led a NATO coalition into Libya that resulted in Mummer Gaddafi's violent death? You guessed it, absolutely nothing. Following his typical pattern, Obama likes to kill from afar, often from a drone attack from the air, then he likes to get out of Dodge and let the region disintegrate into chaos. He is the first President we have ever had who can kill the leader of a nation then feel no responsibility to help that nation rebuild itself into a law-abiding democracy.
Today, Libya is more wild and undisciplined that our wild, wild west ever was in a Hollywood movie. ISIS filled the vacuum that Obama left when he assisted in Gaddafi's death and then pulled up out. In what we will predict will be just a matter of weeks, Libya will be another Islamic state and part of the ISIS caliphate. In fact, they already call themselves the "Barqa" provincial division in Libya.
Another failure on the part of Obama with a high price tag attached to it.

A video purporting to show the killing of Ethiopian Christians by Islamic State-affiliated militants in Libyahas been released online.
The 29-minute video appears to show militants holding two groups of captives, one by an affiliate in eastern Libya known as Barka Province and the other by the Fazzan Province, an affiliate in the south.
A masked fighter wielding a pistol says Christians must convert to Islam or pay a special tax prescribed by the Quran, before the captives in the south are shown being shot dead and the captives in the east are beheaded on a beach.
In January, militants loyal to the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS and ISIL, claimed responsibility for an attack on the Corinthia hotel in the Libyan capital of Tripolithat left 10 people including an American and four other foreigners dead.
Extremist groups, including some that have pledged allegiance to ISIL, have risen in the country since the overthrow of dictator Moammar Gadhafi in 2011.
In February, Egypt began airstrikes against ISIL targets in Libya hours after militants released a video purporting to show the mass beheading of Egyptian Christian hostages.
SIL controls vast swaths of Syria and neighboring Iraq. The extremists were recently driven out of Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit by Iraqi forces and allied Shiite militias, helped by U.S.-led coalition airstrikes.
The battle for Tikrit was seen as a key step toward driving the militants out of Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city.
