The Sunday talk shows are meant to be the ‘world stage’ were the reigning politicians parade around their reasons and rationales for current policies. Today, the Obama administration paraded out how deeply clueless they are on Libya:
Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen, in a series of Sunday morning television interviews, stressed that the U.S. military mission in Libya is “limited.”
But he also indicated that based on his orders from President Barack Obama, the mission can be considered “accomplished,” even while Moammar Qadhafi remains in power.
As I noted earlier, the implied purpose for all of this was to remove Qadaffi from power, but apparently not anymore. Before the first weekend of the war is completed our firm and resolute young president has once again changed his mind. Something he apparently does many times a day.
