The biggest fireworks on New Year’s Eve weren’t any glowing in the night sky above millions of giddy revelers worldwide, but instead came tucked away in another batch of Hillary’s infamous emails made public — and the contents are so explosive, she could be charged with war crimes.
Buried in the former Secretary of State’s emails are evidence of extrajudicial killings by U.S.-allied rebels, the embedding of al-Qaeda affiliated fighters amongst those same rebel forces, and even substantiation that Western motives for warring with Libya had more to do with gold, silver, and oil than anything else.
