Look… I get to be racist and sexist all in one post.
To avoid this…I will just say pontificating idiot from DC.
Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) on Thursday praised the Obama administration’s cautious approach to Libya and its attempts to avoid a repeat of the Iraq War, the ‘œmost catastrophic war’ of the 20th century.
Her remarks were made during a House Oversight Committee hearing on the White House’s handling of the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi that claimed the lives of four Americans.
‘œIt’s interesting to note,’ she said in reference to the Obama administration’s handling of the volatile situation in Libya, ‘œwhen we intervened in Iraq, where the consequences were ‘¦ where we could have prevented by simply letting the monitors on the ground continue to look for weapons of mass destructions, we just went in willy-nilly.’
‘œWe didn’t have anything like that in Libya,’ she added. ‘œAnd of course in Iraq ‘¦ we went in headfirst. Perhaps the most catastrophic war of the 20th century; invasion by the United States of America.’
The U.S. invaded Iraq in 2003, three years after the start of the 21st century.
So..WW2 was 20 times more catastrophic in the 20th century…did she mean 21st century?…this was the most catastrophic war of that last 14 years…ok..I will agree with that. Hope the next 80 years are rainbows and peace parties (but I doubt it).
So during a hearing on how badly this administration handled the murder of a US diplomat in Libya…She’s praising the administration for how well it was handled… by trashing the guy before him that liberated and entire country?
