His cheerleaders in the lapdog media have talked of an Obama Doctrine and, yes, it is true, he illustrated it tonight. Like everything else the Obama Regime does, the Obama Doctrine can be summed up in three letters - W.T.F.
From studying history and witnessing in my lifetime involvement in Grenada, Central America, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iraq (again), I must say I cannot recall a President ever having to re-explain to a nation (again) why we are risking the lives of our fighting men and women, assets and treasure into a "kinetic military action" where the goals and security threats to the United States were never outlined in the beginning to the nation. Why no answers to questions about the "rebels" we are assisting? Many of these "rebels" claim links to al-Queda.
Humanitarian crisis? Then why no involvement in Syria, Bahrain, or Iran? Saddam Hussein, who is currently pushing up daisies, brutalized his people, killed and tortured political enemies, and also used weapons of mass destruction on the Kurds. However, in 2002, Barack Hussein Obama called any involvement in getting rid of Hussein "a dumb war," even though Saddam was suspected of having WMDs (long before George W. Bush was President) and suspected of having ties to terrorism.
And, if Libyan Dictator Moammar Gadadfi (how his name is spelled this week) was the bad buy Obama said he was tonight (and I don't deny he is), then why did the Obama Regime give Gaddafi $400,000 in US money in 2009? Andrew McCarthy asked that question, and had reported on it back in September 2009.
The Obama administration has notified Congress of the State Department's intention to contribute $400,000 to foundations run by Muammar Qaddafi's two children — $200,000 each for daughter Aisha and son Saif. Saif, you may recall, is the son who escorted the Lockerbie terrorist Abdel Baset al-Megrahi home to a hero's welcome in Libya after President Obama sternly "warned" Qaddafi that there was to be no hero's welcome.Then Rep. Mark Kirk wanted the grant withdrawn.
First, Gaddafi had to go, then he could stay, now tonight, he needs to go again. The Defense Secretary said on Meet the Depressed yesterday that involvement in Libya was not in our interest, until Hillary took over the interview. Obama had the chance to end the confusion and answer legitimate questions about our involvement in Libya.
Once again, he failed to do that.
Lapdog media outlet AP even shoots holes in Obama's claims made in his speech tonight.
