If we are arming jihadists in Libya, jihadists who took up arms against America in Afghanistan and Iraq, in my view, that constitutes treason. At this point, we have no reason to believe that these rebels are really democracy loving locals and every reason to believe that they are not.
According to the lastest reports, this regime is sending our soldiers in to provide arms and air coverage to protect the very men who tried to kill them just a few short years ago. Aren’t the joint chiefs aware of this? Is anyone, besides the average American, even questioning the accuracy of these reports?
Denis Kucinich is the only congressman who’s even mentioned the “I” word and not in relation to this. In his attempt to wrap himself up as a Constitution loving American – “Whether you like President Obama or not is not the question. The question is: if you like the Constitution more” – he calls for the defunding of the Libyan action. I’d say that’s a little too little and a little too late, since the action’s been taken already. And Kucinich is cautiously using the “I” word in relation to Obama taking action without consulting congress first, not regarding providing “aid and comfort to the enemy.”
I’m hoping that congress will call for investigations into this. I can’t really imagine how our soldiers will feel if this is true. And if there are officials in the Pentagon who are aware and not questioning or who are aware and know this to be untrue, they need a forum in order to speak up.
