When he first sought to justify his undeclared, unauthorized war in Libya, President Barack Obama reassured members of Congress that the conflict, or the “heavy kinetic activity” as I guess we’re calling the incineration of poor foreigners these days, would last “days, not weeks,” as multiple media outlets reported at the time. The line was repeated by one of Obama’s national security advisers and by the president himself at a news conference.
That was in March, more than a dozen weeks ago. That is to say — and say it with me liberals — Barack Obama misled his country into an illegal war.
“Obama Lied, People Died,” is a chant I expect to hear at the next Democratic National Convention — unless, of course, those Democrats who claimed to oppose lying their country into war when a Republican was in power were, and are, liars too.
