He has been posting intermittently for a while, but seems to be back with a vengeance with the eruption of this whole kinetic deal in Libya we’ve got going. Here is a taste, from yesterday: In six weeks, Obama fails miserably at what Bush père did so very well in one. My favorite part, I think, is in an update:
Oh, yes, I definitely saw this coming:
President Barack Obama told congressional leaders there are no plans to use the U.S. military to assassinate Libyan strongman Muammar Qadhafi — despite the administration’s policy of seeking regime change in the North African country — according to sources familiar with a Friday White House Situation Room briefing.
“There was a discussion of how we have other ways of regime change,” Maryland Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee told POLITICO. “It’s not our role to do anything at this point from a kinetic point of view. It is our goal for regime change, but we’re not going to do it from a kinetic point of view.”
So yeah, add that to Adm. Gortney’s “guarantee” that Kadafi is “not on the target list” and I think you’ve pretty much got the picture here. We’re going to keep all of our options right out on the table, including holding our breath until we turn blue and we get really dizzy. Except the one option which would really work, right away. That one we’ve ruled out repeatedly.
Kadafi’s possibly the safest person in Libya, at least for tonight. He’s got Obama’s word on it. Even if Obama could just push the button and Kadafi would magically, instantly, disappear without a hair being harmed on any other LIbyan’s head, Obama wouldn’t do it.
Yeah, we’re going over there in large part because he is killing his citizens, so let’s fight a war (did I say that out loud?) and kill the little people . . . but for goodness’ sakes, let’s not kill him! (By the way, John Bolton, as you might guess, disagrees.)
As Beldar indicates, he most definitely did see this coming. Just go to his main page and keep scrolling.
P.S. You know who has no problem with targeted killings? Qadhafi!
