Obama Ignores Request for Diplomacy: Obama promised in 2008 that he would depart from the “Bush aggression policies” as a “diplomatic” tool and rely on direct talks with even our enemies. Well, I guess we did not get the memo that this does not apply to Libya and Moammar Gadhafi. Gadhafi sent Obama a letter directly in April of 2011 asking for a cease-fire and direct talks with the US. This request went unanswered unless you consider Cruise Missiles and Airstrikes as a form of communication.
Gadhafi Asks Congress and the President for Talks: On June 9th, Moammar Gadhafi send a second letter and also included Congress on the addressee list. Apparently he is hoping that someone in Congress can get this administration to live up to their “diplomacy first” policy. Moammar, don’t hold your breath; the Congress is as poorly informed as the American public of what Obama is doing in Libya. Maybe if you do get a meeting with the Pres you can hold a press conference and let us know. Maybe even address Congress like the PM of Israel. That seems to be the only way we can learn what is going on in our own country.
Why Not Talk to Gadhafi? Regardless of whether you think that Moammar Gadhafi is serious in his pleas for diplomacy, what do we have to lose? We are about to burn through the first Billion $$$ dollars in our War with Libya with no real end in sight. NATO command has no idea what is going on either and the poor outgoing Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, had no clue why we were there in the first place.
Obama Ignores Congress-Won’t Negotiate with Congress Either!: Obama is in direct violation of the War Powers Act 1973. The left media continues to give him a pass saying that every president since its enactment believed that the law was unconstitutional. What the wacky left neglects to say is that every president since the enactment of the War Powers Act has followed the law, except Obama. If this arrogant placeholder in the White House thinks the law is unconstitutional, then he should follow the law and challenge it in the courts, as REQUIRED BY OUR CONSTITUTION. So now, Obama has many of us siding with Moammar Gadhafi against the US as Moammar Gadhafi’s position seems more reasonable than ours.
MAYBE BOEHNER CAN DISCUSS THIS WITH OBAMA WHEN THEY PLAY GOLF!
