I find it fascinating that it is harder to find what time the president’s speech is going to be than whether or not Lindsay Lohan is dropping her last name, especially if you are checking out CNN for the information. However, according to Yahoo! News, “Obama to lay out his case on Libya to nation” is at 7:30 pm EDT tonight.
Up until now, there has been tension between President Barak Obama and Congress due to a lack of communication (according to Congress). For one thing, conflicting statements have been made about the goal in Libya. Is it to take out Moammar Gadhafi or not?
Newt Gingrich thinks it should be, according to the above article. The sad fact is that if we do not take him out, now that we are committed militarily, then it will show once again how weak our resolve is in the minds of extremists.
Like Iraq, I have to question if anyone has really thought this one through. There seems to be disagreement amongst NATO, Europe and even to some degree in the president’s administration. How will history view this, given the admission from Defense Secretary Robert Gates that Libya was “not a vital interest to the United States”?
