WaPo ^ | July 15, 2011 | Felicia Sonmez

Four of the Senate’s top voices on foreign policy voiced their support Friday for the Obama administration’s move to formally recognize rebel leaders as the legitimate governing authority of Libya.

“We welcome the Administration’s decision to recognize the Transitional National Council (TNC) as the legitimate governing authority of Libya,” said Republican Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman (Conn.) in a statement.

Yep, I’ve been telling people for weeks now, the bloom is off the rose. Rubio also openly vowed to vote versus Ryan’s budget when it was unveiled and has made sympathetic noises re “comprehensive immigration reform.” It looks like he’s on board the McCain/Grahmnesty trains.

Buahahahahahahahaha! At least John Kerry learned his lesson and was absent.

I will continue to root for Gadhafi and his Bedouin tribesmen even if they have to take to the depths of the desert.

These senators are absolutely nuts.They are supporting Al Qaeda, and Obama has them jumping through hoops.Where are the Israelis ? Why was Nethanyahu not there?Buahahahahahahaha! These guys are the same as Hamas.

Rubio has made a terrible mistake.

Its all about these Senators helping the so called Transitional Council spend trillions of dollars of Gadhafi’s hitherto frozen assets.The arms dealers are circling like vultures.They need recommendations from these Senators.And a lot of money will go to solar power for the Libyan desert? Buahahahahahahahahaha!

Rubio is nesting with these crocodiles? SHAME.He is either naive, or too ready to line his pockets with Libyan Lucre. Hey. Money talks, Gadhafi walks.What a bunch of sharks.

Same here. I have been all along. I mean Qaddafi was kind of cleaning up his image and even becoming anti-terror, then... boom. Ubama regime is beyond clueless.

Well, Rubio is better than Crist, but not a whole lot better, it would seem.

I remember saying shortly after he was elected that it was TOO EARLY to say that he would be a great presidential candidate. Let’s see how he does in his current job, first.

Evidently not too well. Disappointing.

Its not only clueless. Its a plan to have the Muslim Brotherhood in charge of Yemen,Somalia, Sudan, Kenya ( Obama helped Odinga in 2006/2007), Egypt, Libya,and the rest of Africa, the resurrection of the old Caliphate with the help of Iranian nukes to come.

Israel and the Saudis will be last as they retake Medina and Mecca.

This is Obama’s “lasting” legacy.

Libya is key, it is the gateway to Africa and the expansion of the Islamists into such places as Nigeria, where they are already blowing up schools and government buildings.

Obama has two Muslin Brotherhood policy advisors on his Whote House staff, unreproted by the MSM, but a retired CIA agent squeeled.

I wonder what dirt they found on Rubio? He’s either
stupid, lied too or compromised. Or maybe Graham and McClam
said they would retire. They probably got Lieberman with a
pint of Jack.

Of the four Senators, McCain and Lieberman were prominent in cheerleading clinton’s “humanitarian war” against the Serbs in 1999. Now there doing a similar thing with the obama/Hillary/Samantha Power “humanitarian war” in Libya.

I guess the other two Senators are just hangers-on. But no one should want to be a hanger-on of evil!

The West’s war on Islam continues; each day brings more volunteers to thei ranks while thinning those of the West. Like Saddam, Qaddafi was preferable as the devil we know; the current situation in Iraq speaks for itself.

I don’t believe that Rubio knows shet from Shinola about the Muslim Brotherhood, Libya, Qaddafi, Islamists, the Sannusiya or the Sharia. I don’t think he could tell you the difference between Tripoli and Tripolitania. It just sounds good to go along and get along with the rebels. He will look like a fool as this Libya issue continues to drag along and the thing ends a stalemate.

Clueless? This is exactly what you'd expect a radical Muslim to do, support Al Qaeda in Libya to get power. You do know Obama is a Muslim traitor, don't you? He was placed in power to do as much damage as he can and America is still clueless.

Isn't it obvious or do you need to see Obama Nuc Tel Avi first?

Very, very disappointing.

I am not surprised at McCain, Graham or Leiberman.

I am very active in the Tea Party in my area (Texas) and sent $$ to Marco’s campaign. It makes me wonder if we are having a positive affect in any way. I don’t expect 100 per cent agreement with any politician...but this seems to be pretty big.

I hadn’t heard about the Transitional Council. Thanks for the heads up on that. Rubio? I had hopes that he would be a breath of fresh air. He’s in with the wrong crowd here. The wrongest crowd.

John Kerry must have been at the VA Hospital for treatment of his war injuries, (He served in Vietnam, in case you hadn’t heard!) or he would have been johnny-on-the-spot to join his old comrade, McCain.

IMHO, each member of this Transiotional Council was hand picked by none other than Marxist CIA former director Leon Panetta.

A whole government’s resources is being ripped off by Obama. I wonder how much of Gadhafi’s Trillions will end up in the Obama campaign coffers? Neat way to grift Trillions to fund Obamagheddon, eh? We begin to see the reason for Obama’s war against Gadhafi.

The b__tard needs impeached yesterday.

With his hair matted in sweat and heavy bags under his eyes, Ali Tarhouni, the rebels’ minister of finance and oil, noted that the international recognition the rebels received Friday would not result in an immediate infusion of funds, which they desperately need.

This is from the article that was linked from the article above. It is the only name given associated with this Transitional Council. Who the heck are these people that they want to give tens of billions of dollars for arms? It has been four months now and the "rebels" still haven't been identified as to who/what they are other than an opposition to Gaddafi. This whole thing is nothing but a humongous grift.

Its a lie, they are getting infusions of that cash right into their numbered personal Swiss bank accounts so the media or the US public cannot trace it.

Why else do you think McCain, Rubio, Leibermann etc. are circling like vultures?

You are right. Huge grift. It beats the Reagan Iran Contra scam by several country miles. Ollie North must be spitting nickles.

Where is the press? Buahahahahahahahaha!

Billions into the Obmagheddon coffers to fund the Obama Fascist movement.

Oh, I’m sure the “rebels” will get a small, but nonetheless significant, cut of the take. If for no other reason than to create a public cover for the billions of dollar’s worth of military hardware they will get that U.S. taxpayers will actually foot the bill for.

The real grift could be billions into off shore accounts to fund Obamagheddon. I hope someone is watching that, like the FBI, CIA or Interpol.Certainly the Mossad would be weatching that.

You have to rememeber that Obama has the Swiss banking system quaking in fear. They do what he says these days.That means everyone in the USA is restricted in the use of Foreign Bank accounts except for those with “waivers” from the new foreign reporting laws of international bank accounts, i.e those from the fascist Obama regime and his supporters.

The CIA is out of it,among Obama's first acts in office was to put the entire agency under threat, and to cap it with Leon Panetta, an avowed Marxist.Panetta has damaged the CIA and got the senior officers qualing in fear and has left , handing an ineffective agency to a new fall guy.

THe real power behind Obama is a cartel of Arabs and Soros,those same ones who caused the crisis of a Bank Run on the fed to the tune of 500 billion in a few hours, on Sept 18th , 2007. The only surveillance on Obama are the 60 stalwart Tea Party Republicans in the House, perhaps a few small wings of the US military, and the Israelis. If we can simply get the facts on Obama out to the public before the election, we can be rid of him. I think the HOUSE should draw up articles of impeachment and investigate him publicly, so that information can get out to the public beyond the Obama propaganda MSM machine. That way Obama loses to the truth.The truth is long overdue.

60 Conservative Republicans in the House need to go on the offensive and begin drafting articles of impeachment.

The battle must be joined. They have an entire nation to save from the presidential usurper of our constitution and our way of life.

Thats the answer, or we will have to resort to force majeur as a people, yet again.

We’re supposed to care that Saudi women can’t drive; we live in a country where white men are losing their jobs to token (insert your preference) women/ethnic minorities - but not Asians - whatever. Are we supposed to care when this “culture” disappears? If we agree to tend to their pet cemeteries, will they shut the %&$# up and leave? Obviously God didn’t mean for them to inherit the Earth...

(I’ve multiplied - several times over)
