The Nation: Obama Fails To Explain An Unjust WarSubmitted by radiofriendly on Tue, 03/29/2011 - 08:46
From NPR/The Nation: President Obama finally got around to speaking to the American people about the fact that he has led the country into a third war.
The speech was, to no one's surprise, ably delivered...
He explained how there are times "when our safety is not directly threatened, but our interests and values are..."
Unfortunately, he also spoke about how he had initiated the way on his own: "I ordered warships into the Mediterranean." I refused to let that happen." "I authorized military action ..." "At my direction ..."
The problem is that presidents are not supposed to start wars, especially wars of whim that are offensive rather than defensive in nature...
