Say Hello To Armed Drones Flying Over Libya

Mission creep, anyone?

President Obama has approved the use of armed Predator drone aircraft in the skies over Libya, The Associated Press reports, adding that Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced the news at a Pentagon news conference.

According to the AP, “Marine Gen. James Cartwright, speaking alongside Gates, said the first Predator mission was scheduled for Thursday but it was scratched due to poor weather. Cartwright said the Predators allow low-level precision attacks on Libyan government forces.”

Wait, I thought Obama said we were pretty much done with Libya?

The Lefties at Firedoglake aren’t particularly happy about this turn of events, but, just can’t find it in themselves to condemn The One.

    Lemme guess – they’re to “protect the rebels”, but nobody would ever think of sending some after El Daffo Maximo.

  2. Well, there’s no need, since El President Obama gave a speech telling G’daffy he had to go.

    As long as they aren’t taken from the contingent that are assigned to “watching” the UN building.

    And Reported that Paul Ryans Budget was Radical.

    Meanwhile LEftist thugs break into offices and steal recall petitions of democratic senators and the MSM reports that Republicans are Radicals.

    As the leftist demand we return to the 12th century the MSM reports that Republicans are Racists.

    And the MSM………shouted AMEN!!!

    In 2002-2003 leading up to the invasion of Iraq the MSM said afterwards that they were complicit in helping beat the drums of war.

    Today they are complicit in helping fan the flames of civil strife.

    In 10 years as wars rage in the streets in America……assuming we dont go up in flames by Yellowstone erupting in 2012…….the MSM will be shouting AMEN.


    And president George Soros dispatched his VP Michael Moore to war torn California to investigate claims that La Raza is using guantanamo style gulags to incarcerate Conservatives without trials.
