DID OBAMA BUNGLE LIBYA?

March 29, 2011

What is as important as what Obama said last night in his speech is what he did not say.

Obama did not explain why it was important to save unarmed civilians in Libya and not important to save unarmed vililians being shot down in Syria and Yemen.

Obama did not explain why it was important that the U.S.  take the lead in libya, then turn around and hand over the lead to someone else.

Obama said earlier that Gadhafi had to go but he gave no explanation as to how this was to be done.

Obama gave no coherent explanation of what an exit strategy would  look like.

Has Obama bungled Libya?

What do you think?
