Barack Obama said this about Muammar Gaddafi’s death:
For four decades, the Qaddafi regime ruled the Libyan people with an iron fist. Basic human rights were denied. Innocent civilians were detained, beaten and killed. And Libya’s wealth was squandered. The enormous potential of the Libyan people was held back, and terror was used as a political weapon.
The path to Gaddafi’s end has been a very strange one.
This sort of thing really warms the heart:

You an an idiot to believe anything Barack Obama says
Despite repeated assurances from President Obama and military leaders that the U.S. would not send uniformed military personnel into Libya, four U.S. service members arrived on the ground in Tripoli over the weekend.
Word comes that Barack Obama has engaged the United States into a fourth war- in Yemen. Once again this is done without the advice or consent of Congress. This diminutive property on the Arabian Peninsula is clearly an imminent threat to the United States. As the costs for Barack’s Libyan adventure spiral to who knows where Obama finds another swamp in which to mire the United States. The guy who was dead set against the war in Iraq has now initiated two of his own wars. The guy who said “Change in the region will not and cannot be imposed by the United States or any foreign power” has toppled one government in the Middle East and is waging war on two more.
“We don’t trot out this stuff as trophies” said Obama.
“…we don’t need to spike the football” said Obama.
And he added:
Curt pointed out the “unrepentant” Terry Jones to us here. Jones held a mock trial and burned a Quran on March 20. The reaction in the Muslin world has been as uncivilized, vicious and barbaric as it was predictable.
This was the reaction in anticipation of the Quran burning in September:
Muslims around the world called for Barack Obama’s death at protests to denounce a US church’s plans to burn the Islamic holy book on the anniversary of 9/11
The price of oil reached a 30 month high of $108 per barrel on April 1.
Almost as if a signal was given, a host of articles appeared recently all saying exactly the same thing.

It’s over in Libya.
As the civilian casualties mount and a coalition strike has killed 12 in Brega, including three medical students, Libyan rebels are in retreat.
Libyan rebels have called for a cease fire in the confluence of events.
- Barack Obama gave up on using force to remove Gaddafi.
Hillary Clinton has declared that Barack Obama is now above the Constitution of the United States. The person who as candidate for President said:
“The President has the solemn duty to defend our Nation. If the country is under truly imminent threat of attack, of course the President must take appropriate action to defend us. At the same time, the Constitution requires Congress to authorize war. I do not believe that the President can take military action — including any kind of strategic bombing — against Iran without congressional authorization.
