Gadhafi is coming out of this smelling like a rose... Wow I just cannot believe what a complete cluster%uck this is. This intervention, what, put together over lunch and a few pencils/napkins? Obama just said ok, and didn’t even bother to mention it to America? Totally insane, hope it costs Obama any slim hope of being elected.
Like Carter, Obama is making a huge mess out of foreign policy, and I can only hope we wind up getting 12-16 yrs of conservatives running the W/H because of him.
Did barrack just kill NATO?
It was a very HOPEFUL failure though
