Flashback to 2011 when now Speaker of the House Pelosi said Obama did not need authorization to use force in Libya. This contrasts with her current criticism of President Trumps decision to kill Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani.

Yeah, but George Soros and Obama and Hillary were stealing money out of Libya, so that made it OK.
You miss the point entirely. We have few interests in Libya, so it’s OK for a president to go muck with the place.
OTOH, we have significant interests in Iraq, so a president must be constrained.
Now, I hope it makes sense.
It doesn’t? I didn’t think that it would.
The era of double standards (and of Freepers making sarcastic comments about it because they’re scared to say anything else) will come to an end.
Obama’s unwarranted war on the recognized legal government of Libya was a war crime. That has lead to the “Refugee Invasion” of Europe a crime against humanity.
Democrats all suffer from selective amnesia.
Obama had bipartisan support from McCain, Graham and Rubio.
Won’t be reported by the MSM.
Just like democrats, Pelosi makes it up as she goes.
Stalinists lie. Always
Secretary of state Hillary Clinton claimed responsibility for the war crime murder of a POW named Momar Gadhafi.
Think about it.
Obama used drones to assassinate 27 hostiles, and if memory serves correctly, one of those 27 was a US citizen. Yet we heard not a peep from anyone from the Dems or the GOP about Obamas being an out of control war monger, who needed his War Powers limited by Congress. Obama went on to destroy a whole nation needlessly, without declaration of war from Congress: Libya, temporarily converting NATO into an imperialist power.There was not a peep. This was done because Libya was in the way of Obamas Arab Spring where the Muslim Brotherhood was to rise up and bring a utopian society to the Levant and North Africa. Gadaffi pounded the MB mercilessly because they were recruiting jihadhis in East Libya for Iraq. Obama offed Gadaffi and destroyed a complete country on the basis of his personal ideology, a tyrants wages,and nary a peep from Congress.
Particularly unnerving was this GOP RINO and Dem silence because Obama also destroyed one of the greatest hydrology projects in the history of mankind, thereby starving vast sweeps of the Southern Desert from the lack of water , and bringing an end to the greening and food production of Libyas Southern desert.NARY A PEEP from the swamp.
Now President Trump is effectively converting appeasement of Iran into deterrence , splatted one very bad foreign general who had no legitimate business in Iraq, splatted him all over a concrete wall at Baghdad airport, and the Dems and RINOS are screaming FOUL!.
I dont know how these leftist freaks and RINOS will be able to handle President Trumps landslide electoral victory in November. They will have to face outright violence from the public to shut them the F**K UP?
Someone in the Unfree Press now needs to call pantywaists like Lee and the perpetual mugging victim from Kentucky, Rand Paul, on their duplicity and caterwauling.
President Trump is doing an excellent job at keeping secret info secure and thereby protecting our military and other US personnel from the outright savagery of leaks which the Iranian Intel services are awaiting so they can do the dirty.The President is having none of it.Good for him.
