White House won’t talk about Libya, while Peru does
White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters on Air Force One that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will speak about Libya at 2:30 p.m. He referred questions on Libya to “earlier statements,” the pool reports.
Carney added that he didn’t anticipate Obama speaking about Libya.
Therefore, Politico started its article with the advice, “Be patient”.
Patient, as in, the American hostages held by the Somali pirates,
More notes from the pool report: President Obama authorized the use of force over the weekend against the Somali pirates in the Gulf of Aden if a threat to hostages was imminent, Carney said.
How did that work out?
Counterterrorism adviser John Brennan told Obama of the four hostages’ deaths at 4:42 a.m., he said.
Third world countries are more decisive than the Obama administration,
Peru, on the other hand, has decided that its best not to deal with Libya at all, becoming the first country to completely cut ties with Qaddafi’s regime. Meanwhile, a day after two Libyan air force jets landed in Malta, their pilots refusing orders to fire on protesting citizens, a Libyan warship ordered to bombard the breakaway city of Benghazi has also defected to the Mediterranean country.
Peru, Malta. Not the USA.
