So, what's it going to be today?


The White House suggested Tuesday the mission in Libya is one of regime change, despite emphatic statements from President Obama and military brass that the goal is not to remove Moammar Gadhafi from power.

According to a White House readout of a Monday night call between Obama and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the two leaders "underscored their shared commitment to the goal of helping provide the Libyan people an opportunity to transform their country, by installing a democratic system that respects the people’s will."

The term "installing" suggests the goal of regime change.

The White House was emphatic Tuesday in insisting there was no change to the U.S. military mission.



* We tried to do an image search for "President Obama" but the likeness of the previous President was all that kept popping up. True story.

How is getting rid of Gadhafi and implimenting a democratic government NOT regime change, something he specifically denounced in his 2009 speech to the Arab world?

I saw the Steering Committee thing. Unbelievable.
