Full title: Emails show Qadaffi son offered talks but Clinton ordered top general to 'not take the call,' source says
Video at link.
Exclusive - New emails obtained by Fox News show that in March 2011, at the height of the Arab Spring revolution inside Libya, dictator Muammar Qaddafis son Saif was willing to talk peace from the ground in Libya but a source told Fox News the offer was rejected by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
In the years since Qaddafi was forced from power, Libya's government has collapsed, and extremist groups including ISIS have exploited the power vacuum. While the Obama administration has promoted the use of "soft power" and diplomacy, the documents suggest the option was not vigorously pursued here.
One key email describing the offer of talks was dated March 18, 2011 and sent at 7:27 a.m. EST to three members of The Joint Staff. It states, "Our contact will arrange a face-to-face meeting with Saif [Qaddafi], or a Skype/video-telecon [teleconference] to open communications if time does not permit ... A peaceful resolution is still possible that keeps Saif on our side without bloodshed in Benghazi."
The response from a senior policy adviser, on her government email account, was sent to 11 staff members at 7:57 a.m. The adviser writes, "Sirs, the JCSWG's [the Joint Chiefs of Staff's Working Group] contact is ready to arrange a meeting with Saif on a skype/video-telecon. Might be worth passing to folks who do this stuff routinely." These "working groups" are stood up to deal with specific issues or challenges.
Copied on that same email is then-Lt. Gen. Charles Jacoby. During March 2011, Jacoby served as director of strategy, plans and policy for The Joint Staff and was responsible for planning coalition and NATO operations in Libya.

Can’t be true. She is the smartest woman (spit) in the world.
Gee, this seems like an email that should not be on a private server.
The decision not to pursue peace had to have originated with Obama.
The Nobel Prize people are such fools.
Wonder why she left this important part out of her book! She opened up a can of worms.
She was thinking of her impending Prez run and remembered the one matter on which lib voters really gave Bill hell was the way he did nothing in Rwanda, when the Hutus and Tsutis had their rambunctuous machete/screwdriver orgies.
She didn’t care about the details really, but was only hearing, “And what role did YOU play, Hillary, in the Libyan civil war...?”
Actually she caused and then intensified it.
Hillary and Obama were not going to deterred from their goal of giving jihadi networks a path to power in Libya.
Yep, seems she’s had this selective memory all of her adult life.
I believe you nailed it. Her desire to become prez far outweighed her desire to do the right thing and serve her country.
Obama/Clinton purposely turned Libya into a failed state. They assassinated Khaddafi, looted the central bank, broke they country apart, started a civil war which has killed tens of thousands, and sent hundreds of thousands refugees across the Mediterranean
I only wonder - WHY?
They will say this is just another tactic of the conspiracy Republicans to make people pee their pants.
What happened to Kadaffis’s GOLD???
Gold? What gold? The Swiss know nothing about this gold you speak of :)
This was floating around months ago. Impressive that it finally made it to the mainstream media.
Message to the Middle East: If you are not affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood you will be destroyed no matter how moderate or secular you become....
How in the hell does an un-elected employee of the government get to make a decision like that!!!!!
The Secretary of State doesn’t get to make decisions like that!!! She was not elected by the American citizens.
What the hell is wrong with these jackasses?
Obama doesn’t get to pick and choose his duties. He begged to be our President. If he doesn’t want to make the tough calls, then resign!
How in the hell does a State Department employee get to tell Generals what they can or can’t do? She was not The Commander In Chief!
My God, it is going to take the detonation of a nuclear weapon on American soil before the American Press and the Democrat Party wakes up to the idiocy that is the Obama Administration.
Could this be the ‘three o’clock in the morning call’ she forgot to answer??????
