Obama Lied, People Died

Gee.  Besides knifing the Constitution with his Adventure in Libya, Obozo also caused some 'collateral deaths.'

EVIDENCE IS now in that President Barack Obama grossly exaggerated the humanitarian threat to justify military action in Libya. The president claimed that intervention was necessary to prevent a "bloodbath'' in Benghazi, Libya's second-largest city and last rebel stronghold.
But Human Rights Watch has released data on Misurata, the next-biggest city in Libya and scene of protracted fighting, revealing that Moammar Khadafy is not deliberately massacring civilians but rather narrowly targeting the armed rebels who fight against his government.
--AmSpec quoting A. Kuperman

No, Obozo's not the first President to lie like Hell about mythological 'enemies of humanity.'  It would be very nice, however, if he were the last.

So President Obama's most successful foreign policy has been an illegal war started on a lie which may end up creating an unstable Islamist-oriented state with jihadists in positions of power.  Along the way, noted Kuperman, U.S. intervention "prolonged Libya's civil war and the resultant suffering of innocents."  Truly an extraordinary achievement!

And the asshole promised "Change."

It's refreshing to see your embracing of Human Rights Watch as a reputable source of record.

HR Watch has been pretty good, overall. Not perfect. But, ya' know, I'm not a member of the War Party under any circumstances.
