Obama ignorant of his choices

William D. Zeranski
The American and Allied ‘no-fly zone' was on!  But along with keeping Gaddaffi's planes out of the air, all sorts of ground targets were being obliterated. Why?  No one knows.  Not even the man in the White House, but then again, no one asked him, so we don't know if he would ever have had an answer.   But the opposition started winning and gaining ground again, so it didn't seem to matter.

Questions were asked if going after Gaddaffi was one of the goals, but no, no attempts were being made to kill the dictator.  But you could sense many in the MSM crossing their fingers and making wishes, but the dictator, everyone in the MSM said was in his final days-weeks ago, is still here.  The long ruling leader has more staying power than anyone want thought, and airpower won't take him out.  New MSM reports state that Gaddafi's ‘inner circle' is crumbling, yet again.  His foreign minster is hitting the high road to defection in London, but the MSM reported that same kind of crumbling four weeks ago, too, and the "Libyan leader [...] replaced two of his ministers who had defected to support the anti- government protests"

The problem isn't really Gaddafi anymore.   After spending days and millions-and millions of dollars weapons, Tomahawk missiles cost a million and a half each, along with every plane that leaves the flight deck of a carrier, the president has decided to learn something about the opposition-those ‘rebels' he has thrown his support to. 

And of course there's a hitch, as Nato's Supreme Allied Commander, Admiral James Stavridis, has stated that
‘flickers' have been noted that the "Libyan rebel forces may have been infiltrated by al-Qaeda fighters, a senior American military commander has warned."

Well, thanks Admiral, but you would think that an investigation or vetting, if you will, of the ‘rebels' is a coming a bit late, being that "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."  Rebel forces who maybe al-Qaeda lead. 

All may not be lost:

Nato chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Thursday he opposed arming Libyan rebels, stressing Nato had intervened to protect and not to arm Libyans.

"We are there to protect the Libyan people, not to arm the Libyan people," Rasmussen told reporters.

"As far as Nato is concerned, and I speak on behalf of Nato, we will focus on the enforcement of the arms embargo and the clear purpose of an arms embargo is to stop the flow of weapons into the country," he said.

"Nato will fully implement that part of the UN Security Council resolution," Rasmussen said, noting the alliance had "taken note of ongoing discussions in different countries" about arming the rebels.

NATO just may save the American president from rushing in where ignorance never fears to tread.
