Is Obama waiting til US Nationals out of Libya?A Point of View, Middle East & North Africa, Politics | Sandra | February 22, 2011 at 21:10
I see Hillary‘s face. She knows about the evil in the streets of Libya. She wants to send in the Marines. She looks like she’s really holding herself back when speaking as Secretary of State Clinton. It’s wearing on her.
Obama probably reflects the same sentiments – he just expresses it differently. And he is President of the United States and might just be a little worried that something he says might tick off madman Gaddafi and he’d order his henchmen to go after Americans.
You can’t put anything past Gaddafi.
I am starting to sense this when I hear the news of the ferry to sail Americans from Tripoli to Malta tomorrow. I like the way it’s presented: “First Come, First Serve.” The strongest survive! That’s America. Those with medical conditions go first. I’d guess that’s be followed by women and children. Like who goes on a life raft when the ship is sinking?
What I don’t understand is why they don’t send two ferries and assure everyone of a place. They must have good numbers on the Americans in Libya. No one would be crazy enough to be there without registering at the Embassy. Well, maybe a couple of adventurers here and there. But they’re probably way way south in the desert.
