Libya-not

Run by a president whose election years ago was accompanied by violence, violation of press freedom, and multiple fraud allegations.  Uprisings against the government have since occured, with escalating clashes between the police and pro-government supporters versus the rag-tag rebel groups, who may have been being run by Al Queda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

This had resulted in violent crackdowns on the population by the folks running the government.  The government and its security enforcement forces were widely corrupt and  had been responsible for torture, inhumane treatment, extrajudicial executions, arbitrary searches of citizens and their homes, prolonged detention without charges, restriction of the press, religion, and speech

Didn’t we just overthrow them?

It’s not Libya.  It’s our 2nd bestest buddy in the Middle East and a close ally in the war against terror, Yemen
