Where’s President Obama?
You’ve read the headlines on the United Nation’s attack on Muammar al-Qaddafi and yet it remains unclear where the President stands on the issue of expelling the aggressive Libyan dictator. “Obama did nothing for weeks to promote a no-fly zone over Libya,” an angry Hannity shared with his audience Monday, “I don’t know what changed his mind but when the French are moving in more heavy handed than the United States, President Present finally decided to make a stand.”
So, Why Libya?
“In Iraq, Al Qaeda’s second biggest suppliers of foreign fighters were from Libya and the leader of Al Qaeda’s North African branch has urged Libyans not to trust America,” began Sean, “Al Qaeda is lobbying for Qaddafi to be overthrown.” It’s clear that there isn’t a good solution to the issues in Libya. While it’s important that the world stands up against militant dictators like Muammar al-Qaddafi, it’s equally important that we have a long term strategy for political stabilization in the area. It’s not clear what President Obama has in mind, or if he has any plan at all. One thing is for certain, the efforts by NATO forces were somewhat successful in sending the message that the world is angry with Qaddafi.
Col. Oliver North
Colonel Oliver North, the man whose family was targeted for assassination by Libyan dictator Muammar al-Qaddafi, joined Sean to talk about that experience and why it’s so important to send the right message to the world’s militant dictators. “The Rebels had Qaddafi on the ropes,” questioned Hannity, “If we were going to take any action that was the time and not when he’s pretty much beaten back any opposition he’s going to have.” Col. North quickly laughed and sarcastically said, “Thank God the leader of the free world, Nicolas Sarkozy, stood up and did the right thing.” North quickly added to that, “We lack a Command-in-Chief who can lead and successful operation of simply supporting the Libyan people who are trying to oust a brutal despot who’s brutalized them for forty years.” President Obama had a clear opportunity to join the world leadership and yet he waivered and now seems as though he’s bringing the United States into a follower’s role within the international community. That’s certainly not a place where we belong.
