The “freedom fighters” that the U.S. launched to power in Libya after ousting former dictator Muammar Gadhafi are imposing, with the help of residual militias, a harsh brand of fundamentalist Islam which is helping to impoverish and subjugate the Libyan people. Salafis are attacking shop owners who sell alcohol and demolishing the tombs of saints where many local people worship. These are the same groups that hoisted the al-Qaeda flag in Benghazi after Gadhafi’s fall. They are now inflaming sectarian divides in Libya as many in America still manage to boast about bringing democracy to the country.
