A Bright and Shining Libyan Lie

And, as VDH suggests, Obama thinks somehow his mixed racial heritage entitles him to a pass as militant Islamic fundamentalists exterminate Jews, Christians and apostate Moslems, he is fatally deluded. Literally and figuratively he'll sit on "free parking" while they hone the knives they intend to use to slit his throat. It is hard for me to imagine thay anyone with even a tenth of the education Obama claims to have can be so naive.

Almost everything we have been told about Libya over the last two years is untrue.

A free Libya was supposed to be proof of President Obama's enlightened reset Middle East policy. When insurgency broke out there, the United States joined France and Great Britain in bombing Muammar Gadhafi out of power -- and supposedly empowering a democratic Arab Spring. Not a single American life was lost.

Libyans, like most in the Arab World, were supposed to appreciate the new enlightened American foreign policy. Obama's June 2009 Cairo speech had praised Islam and apologized for the West. A new "lead from behind"...
