“Obama dithered for weeks while thousands died in a Ghaddaffi slaughter. Then the president was dragged kicking and screaming to the United Nations. After the U.N. approved force Obama managed to delay again.
“And, no sooner were our planes in the air, Obama was promising their imminent departure. Precipitously announcing our departure will stiffen the resistance of Ghaddaffi’s forces. Is this Obama’s way of ‘leading’ as ‘commander-in-chief?’
“You don’t ‘protect’ people by telling their adversaries you are already packing up and leaving in a few hours or days. That is no way to prevail. That’s the surest way to prolong the conflict.
“The Arab League, taking note of Obama’s vaciliaion, is also trying to have it both ways: first approving and requesting force, and then protesting the use of force.
“It seems everyone wants to tell the American military what to do and how to do it except Obama himself. While the UN’s mandate was indeed limited and specific, we need to rely on military judgment to get the job done, not the demands of Arab politicians. The Arab League does not determine American military tactics. If they don’t like our approach we can pack up and go home. And by the way, why aren’t Egyptian and Saudi pilots part of the coalition? They fly the same planes we do. Obama’s weak leadership creates confusion and hesitation.
“It does not appear, however, that the Libyans themselves are protesting the coalition’s tactics. Somebody appreciates our efforts.
“Announcing our departure prematurely undermines the mission and leaves Obama looking like an ‘Anti-American’ president who was forced into using force and wants to avoid any use of that force which projects power in a decisive manner.”
Martin has scheduled a “meet-and-greet” with Georgia Republicans for Monday afternoon before the Georgia GOP Presidents’ Day Dinner. Tuesday morning Martin will hold a news conference to announce his plan of attack on “presidential explorer” Newton Gingrich, a former
