Charles Krauthammer About Obama on Libya: He Says Nothing


"This is a president who went around the world in the first year in office saying how he would-he was raising the moral standard of the United States in the world after the travesties as he saw it or the Bush Administration.

Here he is, he has said nothing on what's happening in Libya which is a case of brutality and mere genocide to use the word of one of Qaddafi's own diplomats. The shooting of demonstrators from helicopter gunships, the strafing of demonstrators from bombers, astonishing, it doesn't happen to anyone else

Here was a president, our president who went out there on television again and again on Egypt which in comparison on what's happening in Libya was Boy Scout treatment of those demonstrations...

Why can't the president find a voice, for reasons of morality simply of upholding our traditions. Secondly, our of strategic interests. Here are the most anti-American regimes and he says nothing"

Wild Thing's comment......

Glad he pointed this out. Obama has his favorites and Remember Qaddafi is the one that said several times...."Obama is a Muslim".

Yeah, and all Bush did was invade Iraq and Lybia gave up his Nukes. But obama has no guts at all unless there is something in it for him. Worst Leader ever, in the entire world, ever.

obama is in way over his head(above his pay scale?). His picked advisors and State Dept. only know how to operate the crooked Chicago way. None of them can function in worldly matters.

It doesn't help American policy that obama is a muslim. I just wonder if obama is a sunni or a shiite.

Tom, hmmm I have no idea, good question.
