March Angryness

Remember when the Obama administration stated we no longer were in a war on terror, we were conducting an overseas contingency operation. Then they changed global warming to global climate disruption. And my favorite was when Janet Napolitano declared terrorism was out and man-caused disaster was in. She was proved wrong on many levels but most specifically here.

White House National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes in explaining our role in Libya: “I think what we are doing is enforcing a resolution that has a very clear set of goals, which is protecting the Libyan people, averting a humanitarian crisis, and setting up a no-fly zone,” Rhodes said. “Obviously that involves kinetic military action, particularly on the front end.”

If I remember my physics it’s nice to know we are involved in Kinetic Military Action as opposed to the potential military action that this administration is much more fond of espousing. He may have used this oblique phrasing to allow CNN to be able to report it.
