Obama Urged to Clear Up Confusion Over Libya Mission in Critical Address

President Obama faced mounting pressure Sunday to make crystal clear what the United States' intentions are in Libya, as he prepared to deliver an address to the nation that could go a long way toward determining whether the public views his actions as reckless or just.

Despite the planned address, the administration continued to send out mixed signals Sunday about the direction and purpose of the mission in Libya. Obama said Saturday that intervening in Libya was "in our national interest," but then Defense Secretary Robert Gates said the conflict, while of interest to the United States, was "not a vital national interest."

Then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the strife was, rather, a "vital" interest to the United States' allies in Europe.

The back-and-forth continued to complicate a messy administration message, one that insists Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi should relinquish power, but at the same time stresses that U.S. military might is not meant to achieve that goal.

He wants to go there and kinetically redistribute the oil wealth from the haves to the have nots.

Kinetic theory calls for the redistribution of the oil and accumulated wealth in the Mid East to the have not nations including the newest third world nation, the bankrupted US of A!

There is absolutely nothing that the madman can say to justify any of his actions. NOTHING. There is absolutely no justification.

Anyone who believes him or believes otherwise is truly a fool.

For Obama to clarify things, doesn’t he need to understand them himself?

And he lies.

But I’ll sign on to the premise.

I couldn’t agree with you more. Unfortunately, the sheep will eat any slop he feeds them.

Oh, we're going to hear such a line of cr** from Obama on Monday.

I'm really expecting Gates to resign at 9 AM tomorrow.

We get only a tad of oil from Libya. Kaddafhi didn't cut it off. France, Spain and Italy get about 25% of their oil.

So, here we are....the big helper....and we're gonna do what....loan them some of our oil??

Obama is nuts!!

He won’t even try to justify it. He will just lie. That is all he is able to do.
