Former Democratic Senator from Virginia Jim Webb, who said that his “views on many issues are not compatible with the power structure and nominating base of the Democratic Party” as he dropped out of the party’s 2016 presidential primary, is still considering launching an independent run for the White House.

On Saturday, he unleashed an attack via Facebook on Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy record as Secretary of State, saying, “Hillary Clinton should be called to account for her inept leadership that brought about the chaos in Libya, and the power vacuums that resulted in the rest of the region. She’ll need better answers than the recent nonsensical comment that she advocated taking out Muammar Qadaffi in Libya in order to avert a situation like Syria. The predictable chaos in Libya was bad enough, but it also helped bring about the disaster in Syria. Who is taking her to task for this?

Webb added, “Clinton talked at this last DNC debate about her failure as Secretary of State as if she was successful. While she held that office, the U.S. spent about $2 billion backing the Libyan uprising against Qadaffi. The uprising, which was part of the Arab Spring, led directly to Qaddafi being removed from power and killed by rebel forces in 2011. Now some 2,000 ISIS terrorists have established a foothold in Libya. Sophisticated weapons from Qaddafi’s arsenal—including up to 15,000 man-portable, surface-to-air missiles have apparently fallen into the hands of radical Islamists throughout the region. For a Secretary of State (and a Presidential administration) this is foreign policy leadership at its worst.

Webb, a highly-decorated Vietnam War veteran, Emmy Award winning journalist, and former Secretary of the Navy and Assistant Secretary of Defense under Ronald Reagan, is expected to announce whether he will run for president as an independent at the beginning of 2016.

According to The Washington Post, in the key swing state of Virginia, a University of Mary Washington’s Center for Leadership and Media Studies poll found Webb at “between 13 and 19 percent” as an independent when pitted against theoretical Republican and Democratic challengers, suggesting that even a failed independent bid by Webb could impact the outcome of the 2016 presidential race.

Bloomberg Politics’ Ben Brody wrote, “Since dropping out of the race for the Democratic nomination, Webb has continued to maintain his Webb2016 website, which he has updated with posts about the possibilities of an independent run. On Twitter, he and his fans have been promoting a #WebbNation hashtag. A run by Webb, who often manages his own social media accounts and has also used them recently to promote a petition in favor of his run and to deliver kudos to Bernie Sanders in his battles with the Democratic National Committee (‘nothing more than an arm for the Clinton campaign,’ Webb tweeted), could further complicate the already unpredictable 2016 election.
