Sen. Webb critical of Obama’s Libya operation: ‘This isn’t the way that our system is supposed to work’

Daily Caller

If we’re going to discuss what’s going on in Libya now and in the future, we have to start with three basic considerations, The first is we have a military operation that’s been put to play, but we do not have a clear diplomatic policy or clear statement of foreign policy that has accompanied this military operation.

The second and the questions you were just asking are some that I’ve asked on the Foreign Relations Committee and the Armed Forces Committee, we know we don’t like the Gaddafi regime, but we do not have a picture of who the opposition movement really is. I’ve asked this repeated to State Department officials including Sec. [Hillary] Clinton in the past couple of weeks. And the third is yes, we got a vote from the Security Council, the United Nations Security Council in order to put this into play...we have not put this issue in front of the American people in any meaningful way.

The president is in Rio. The Congress is out of session. So before we even get in to the command structure of this, I think it’s very clear to put the marker down that moving forward we need to get more involved in terms of anything that goes from this point forward.”

More Democrats speaking out about Obama. Hoping they keep it up, stay upset and be sure to let your voters know how disappointed you are in this jerk obama.

Sen. Webb is exactly right. We don't know who the rebels are. However, it is not far fetched to think that the muslim brotherhood may be playing a big role in that opposition.

Spot on Tom, the MB has increased its influence in the white house. They got berry to support the rebels in Egypt and now the ones in Lybia. muslim is as muslim does.

Someone as smart as Webb is suppose to be you'd think he could have seen this long ago. But wearing blinders like the rest of the democrats, he is blinded or just didn't want to see, obama is no different than Joe Stalin was.

Tom, I bet your right, he favors the muslim brotherhood.

Mark, I agree, and I hope more and more of the dems in Washington speak out. I have a feeling some of them have not liked obama for a long time. Not that they are conservatives, but his attitude is not one to win people over, plus he off the charts on the left.
