Lies About Libya

For me there are still 2 mysteries. 1. Why make up the video story? I don't think the American people would hold Obama responsible for a terrorist attack in Libya. Other embassy bombings had negligible political fallout. 2. Why did Obama just go to bed during this crisis? Is he that uninterested or was he stoned?

. We do not have the luxury of viewing an alternate course of history, but given Saddam Hussein’s record and expressed intentions, I am still open to the idea that the war, as costly as it was, still may have averted another terrible event, and ultimately been better for the world. The choice to go to war was reasonable and logical. Was it right? It is impossible to know.

Those who speak with such hindsight certitude reveal their own ignorance. The 9/11 attacks, which were unprovoked, inflicted almost incalculable economic and social damage on this country, which continues even today. As long as we are playing the “should have” game, we should ask if anything could have been done to prevent those attacks. Most agree that opportunities were missed during the Clinton administration that might have changed the course of history. At that time, it was universally felt, that we could not afford to fail again to prevent such a horrific attack on this country. It was not hard to imagine that the next attack would be nuclear or some other WMD, hence the concept of preemptive war.
The Obama campaign obviously thinks we are all morons. (perhaps a case of projection). Certainly, the intelligence and special forces services have done their utmost to trap OBL since 9/11. Credit is due those good men and women who made this happen. I cant' imagine that the change of Commander in Chief made any difference in the ongoing pursuit. The fact that the lucky break happened on Obama's (or any other president's) watch is the least significant part of the whole story. To see Obama and his liberal sycophants take bows for the event, when they have done their very best to shackle the military and intelligence services, is the pinnacle of hypocrisy. No, we are not stupid.
Obama must be referring to the federal court overturning California's prop 13. right?
