That Kevin Drum is the clearest sign of blind allegiance that anyone could have read!
If that IS a real person, then we see the ignorance the learned are up against… if not, it is a clear case of a shill / lackey doing their job of muddying the waters.

Mr. Fish actually has a brain, unlike this retard who comes straight out of “Animal Farm”:
“So what should I think about [the war in Libya]? If it had been my call, I wouldn’t have gone into Libya. But the reason I voted for Obama in 2008 is because I trust his judgment. And not in any merely abstract way, either: I mean that if he and I were in a room and disagreed about some issue on which I had any doubt at all, I’d literally trust his judgment over my own. I think he’s smarter than me, better informed, better able to understand the consequences of his actions, and more farsighted.”
—Kevin Drum, Friday, in Mother Jones

Washington DC, March 24, 2011 — The current military attack on Libya has
been motivated by UN Security Council resolution 1973 with the need to
protect civilians. Statements by President Obama, British Prime Minister
Cameron, French President Sarkozy, and other leaders have stressed the
humanitarian nature of the intervention, which is said to aim at preventing a
massacre of pro-democracy forces and human rights advocates by the Qaddafi

There’s something in the white house that causes the occupant’s brain to atrophy so that he forgets everything beyond yesterday and is unable to learn from the past. What this reminds me of is how Carter and Reagan funded the rebel troops fighting the Russians in Afghanistan which led to Al Queda and the Taliban. When the chickens come home to roost they shit all over everything.
