Person of the Week: Abdel Fattah Younes, the recently assassinated Military Chief of Libyan rebels


“I don’t think the investigation will lead anywhere.  They don’t dare to touch the Islamists.”  Reportedly so says one Libyan rebel commander about the announced plan to investigate whomever killed Mr Younes —  because the faction suspected  of the killing are Al Qaeda Islamists… 

Troubled waters in libya, from the beginning, and now more uncertainty since more inter/intra rebel bloodshed will likely follow … .   For America’s sake, hopefully the death of Abdel Fattah Younes does not portend that America’s involvement eventually will have helped the Islamists win control in Libya.

Is Obama simply whistling-in-the dark to make himself look macho: Campaign 2012?


Certainly appears like it…   He doesn’t seem to understand that there are 3 Branches of government and each has its own duties and responsibilities…  He and his surrogates  call Congress,  juvenile, unlike, he says, his children. [ …  Brings to mind  poor ol’  Jimmy Carter. … ]

Mr. President,  regardless of what your Campaign 2012 handlers  might have told you, you cannot make friends and win over people, nor gain stature, by belittling    your partners in government…   Partners. … You are not an omnipotent potentate… 

Oh, and by the by, Obama continually is described as a “constitutional scholar”. …  Hard to believe….   Just sayin’…
