Associated Press "fact check" of Obama Libya speech finds flaws in his "facts"


You know it's bad when even the left-leaning Associated Press broke down the President's speech from Monday night, and found it lacking facts.

Obama has broken his own word, once again.
As a Congressman, and on the campaign trail, he repeatedly railed against President Bush's military actions, but at least those were approved by Congress.

In his own book, "Audacity of Hope", he railed against prior military actions by the United States, saying the country would lack legitimacy if we use our military might "without a well-articulated strategy that the public supports and the world understands. Why invade Iraq and not North Korea or Burma? Why intervene in Bosnia and not Darfur?"

So, Mr. President, I ask;

Why Libya and not Yemen?

Why Libya and not Syria?

My answer is well known to my readers;

We need to stand down, and let these revolutions play themselves out, and only then can we even begin to know who we'll have to deal with.

The Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda are major players in all the countries in which there is currently unrest, and we should not be aiding and supporting either of them with our military, as we most assuredly are in Libya.
