No “Vital National Interest”

Reading Time: 1 minutes

ABC News is not known as President Obama’s loudest critic.  More like his Amen corner. So it’s headline screams even louder:

AdriftDefense Secretary: Libya Did Not Pose Threat to U.S., Was Not ‘Vital National Interest’ to Intervene

The rest of Jake Tapper’s story gets more disturbing.

  • The President and the Defense Secretary seem to disagree on national interest
  • The Secretary of State cannot articulate a consistent US policy
  • Hillary Clinton seems to believe that the UN is a legal alternative to the US Congress

More than week into a war that lacks even the thinnest thread of Constitutionality, Barack Obama seems clueless.  To the rest of the world, our whole country must look adrift.

Indeed, we are.
