    it shows nothing of the kind.  All it shows is that he talked to them.

    Talking to someone is far, far from supporting them.  IN fact, I remember not so long ago a major party in this country trying to score points by intentionally conflating the two.

    Intelligent, passionate, perceptive people will always disagree, but we should not let that disagreement, however heartfelt, lead us to become deaf to those better angels of our nature.

      Only one of the info requests speaks directly to the question of US/NATO involvment:

      4-.Any evidence of Civilian deaths by NATO.

      All the rest only relate to NATO if you want to argue that NATO is on the wrong side, not that NATO should stay out of it. I breakdown his questions this way:

      Anti-opposition: 1-3, 5-7
      Anti-NATO: 4
      Pro-Qaddafi: 8-14

      So I think his RFC has a decidedly pro-dictatorship bent but you'll have to make up your own mind.

        I hadn't read it that way.  I was just imagining that he was going to argue that both sides are bad, so we should stay out.

        I don't have a lot of use for either position, since this is one of the times I'm fully in Obama's camp.

        Still, sure doesn't have Kucinich comin out looking good, that's for sure.

        Intelligent, passionate, perceptive people will always disagree, but we should not let that disagreement, however heartfelt, lead us to become deaf to those better angels of our nature.
