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.
Barack Obama has a new plan for those individuals we don’t like: kill them.
Usama bin Laden has been killed. The U.S. is poised to begin withdrawing troops from Afghanistan. And the Obama administration’s shift in counterterrorism strategy from land wars to precision strikes and raids is raising concerns that the White House has adopted a policy of targeting killings for terror suspects.
About a month ago I put up a post
Candidate Obama would demand impeachment of President Obama
In it I argued that Libya was in middle of a civil war and I did not and do not feel we have any business being involved in a civil war especially since was no direct threat to the United States. I noted that not once has Obama honestly described the situation in Libya. Like him or not, Moammar Gaddafi is/was facing an armed insurrection. Obama has referred to the rebels repeatedly as “peaceful protesters” when in fact they are armed revolutionaries.
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.
Over and over we have been told
We are not putting any ground forces into Libya.
Last night we learn
The reasons for Barack Obama’s intervention in Libya has never been really clear- or honest. The most commonly offered explanation given for bombing Libya has been the prevention of a humanitarian disaster. Sunday morning, Obama’s Abbott and Costello foreign policy team said that Libya was a direct threat to US national interest and at the same time that it was not. Of course, that does not explain why we interfere in Libya but not in other regions in which human rights are being oppressed- like North Korea, Iran or China.
Jim Geraghty said that all of Barack Obama’s statements come with an expiration date, and frequent readers of FA know I cite that all the time. Truer words were arguably never written. There is simply no question that Obama is an inherently dishonest man and events prove it time and time again. In a previous post it was shown that Senator Obama would have sought the impeachment of President Obama. This could be called Part II but it’s more than that. It just keeps getting worse.
