It would be a real comedy movie if it wasn’t so serious...

If we have special forces on the ground to “help” the rebels, why don’t we ask them to get him out and fly him back to the US on one of our military planes “as a humanitarian effort to keep him safe”...after all, we are such a caring country, we sure wouldn’t want anything to happen to this guy.

Your post should read: “African Muslim, POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama backed rebels are not giving him up? “ IMHO, all Freepers should address and title Obama as he really is, “African Muslim, POTUS Barack Hussein Obama”. Obama is not an American Black, never was and never will be. Shucks Obama stands by while his rebels slaughter Christian Black African innocents and Gaddafi’s military. It’s called murder!!!

That’s OK, maybe we can send him some flowers. Just find his address and a drone will deliver. He’ll have to sign for them.
