On December 7th, 2007 Barack Obama said "The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation" ~ another broken promise thrown into the trash can of history as President Obama orchestrates regime change in Libya under the guise of humanitarian intervention.
Robert Greenwald, Reader Supported News, nails our current illegal pre-emptive action in Libya perfectly ~ " President Obama's decision to participate in the strikes in Libya has already cost US taxpayers "well over $100 million," according to the National Journal . The Journal also relayed that, "the initial stages of taking out Libya's air defenses could ultimately cost ... coalition forces between $400 million and $800 million." The administration launched this new war (and yes, it is a war) with no official congressional authorization, little public debate and with a vague, possibly even non-existent, endgame in mind . It's as if the lessons of the last decade are completely lost on policymakers in the United States ."
