Okay, so, Obama decided that we had to support the Western coalition that wanted to offer air cover to the rebels in Libya. I think I’m alright with that. I remain okay with that even though I have friends who are against that very action.
However, we sent our dog into that fight with the explicit expectation that we were gonna simply remove the ability of the government mow down it’s people using airplanes and helicopters.
More and more we are seeing the scope of the mission increase until finally today we see this:
(Reuters) – President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing covert U.S. government support for rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, government officials told Reuters on Wednesday.
I don’t like Obama, never have. However, I have tried to find aspects of his governing that I can accept; Libya was one. But by signing these secret orders I can’t defend his actions. I can’t say that he is acting with that “global coalition” that gave him some moral standing.
If you wanna take out a leader of a corrupt State – have at it. Just say it. Plain and simple. So simple that maybe even a real life guy in Texas could understand.
