President Barack Obama Congratulated the Libyan people for the second anniversary of the liberation of Libya, noting that US will continue to stand with the people of Libya and its government.
This came in a statement by the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry yesterday, on behalf of Obama, published by the American embassy in Libya on the occasion of the second anniversary of the liberation.
Few days ago, An Algerian security source says President Abdelaziz Bouteflika has officially ordered the army to launch military operations against “terrorists” operating near the border with Tunisia and Libya.

In 2003 Libya Gives Up Nuclear and Chemical Weapons. The decision was hailed by both London and Washington as a victory in the so-called war on terror. Few years later Qaddafi was killed like a dog in the street because he thought he might be a friend to US. It seems Saudi learned the lesson when Saudi officials in Riyadh increasingly regarded the U.S. as unreliable and would look elsewhere for their security. Washington Post Oct 23, 2013.

Did President Obama Congratulate the Libyan because their land became Al Qeada training camp? Who is truly the friend president Obama Congratulated?
What we have learned that early US involvement with the MB during the Cold War era in Chechnya or Afghanistan, is how myopic US leaders have been about the international political agenda of the Ikhwan .Hopes to use the MB in a "holy war" against Soviet Communism always backfired. Today this "holy war" is called sunni vs shiite and you might guess it right, Russia will be the winner.
When our leaders will learn from the history?
