We have no congressionally certified entrance or exit strategy. UN Security Council Russian, Chinese, Indian, Brazilian and German members don’t support this. Defense Secretary Robert Gates himself warned against this. This whole thing could have been avoided by judicious CIA pressure on Gaddafi weeks ago before the killing started. Obama is now trying to wash his hands of this mission by handing, can you imagine, control of our US military over to some international political steering committee. All this during a time period when the US is already in two Middle Eastern wars, we are already in financial in dire straits, and Muslim nations worldwide are already significantly anti-US.
Has Obama even considered that he is unintended-consequence-like aligning with anti-Gaddafi Libyan al-Qaeda affiliates? After Obama specifically campaigned on his constitutional law professor opinion that US presidents do not have the power under our constitution to unilaterally authorize military attacks? The graphic of this make-it-up-as-you-go plan is a complicated embedded venn-diagram-like clusterfuckturducken.
