There is one constant in Obama's foreign policy: he has consistently sided with our worst enemies throughout his disastrous presidency. This is very thoroughly explained and meticulously documented in my book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America.
Why Libya? It would be one thing if Obama had been fighting the forces of jihad through a muscular foreign policy.
News has "leaked" that Obama authorized a secret war in Libya weeks ago -- imagine if a Republican ever pulled a fatal stunt like that. And if it was secret, why is Obama leaking it?
Why wasn't such action taken when millions took to the streets in Iran, so as to cut off the head of the snake?
June 17th, 2009: BACKING THE MULLAHS: OBAMA'S COWARDICE AND HYPOCRISY IN IRAN
Iran has been supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the unrest in Bahrain, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc. You don't go to war at once, you go to war at last. And Iran has been at war with us and the free world for decades.
Instead, our finest, bravest Americans are risking their lives to fight alongside al qaeda in Libya. What could possibly be the end game here, whilst Al-Qaeda is snatching missiles in Libya? The "rebels" that Obama has secretly authorized to arm sold Hizballah and Hamas chemical shells.
I am not a fan of Gaddafi -- there are no heroes in this story -- but Saddam Hussein made Gaddafi look like Angelina Jolie, and yet the left is still whining and hand wringing about that war. But they support this. What is their premise? Bush went to Congress and went to the UN (and gave Saddam, the butcher of Baghdad, a year to move and/or destroy his weapons of mass destruction). Obama just went to war -- without Congress, without even discussing it with the American people. And again I ask, as I have repeatedly for weeks, why? Why Libya? Why Gaddafi?
Assad in Syria is much worse than, say, Mubarak in Egypt, but Obama vows not to interfere in that vassal of Iran, despite the slaughter of their people. And Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood, which is steadily taking control in Egypt. To what end?
Why hasn't Obama taken such action against the jihad pirates in Somalia? Why not a "secret war" in Ethiopia to aid their fight against the jihad? Or aid for the fight against jihad in Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia? Because we can't be everywhere, nor should we be. So we pick our fights based on where we could do the most good and remove the biggest evil.
Iran should have been the target. The mullahcracy should have been removed.
WASHINGTON (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.
Obama signed the order, known as a presidential "finding", within the last two or three weeks, according to four U.S. government sources familiar with the matter.
Such findings are a principal form of presidential directive used to authorize secret operations by the Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA and the White House declined immediate comment.
News that Obama had given the authorization surfaced as the President and other U.S. and allied officials spoke openly about the possibility of sending arms supplies to Gaddafi's opponents, who are fighting better-equipped government forces.
