  •  Thanks Edgar. (5+ / 0-)

    The Libya adventure seemed a little funny to me from its inception.

    •  You're welcome (6+ / 0-)

      Multiple sources are always needed to fact check - your carefullness is a good thing.

      It's Edger, btw, not Edgar... inspired by a Hunter Thompson quote, among other things:

      "The Edge... There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over."

      came about at just the right time.

      You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!

        like Ed Schultz are so bent out of shape about something that happened 24 years ago that it has become their rationale for this intervention. Was Ed equally outraged in 2006 when shrub elevated Ghadaffi to "best buds" status? From Time:

        On Monday, Gaddafi accomplished one of history's great diplomatic turnarounds when Secretary of State Condeleezza Rice announced that the U.S. was restoring full diplomatic relations with Libya and held up the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya as "a model" for others to follow. Rice attributed the ending of the U.S.'s long break in diplomatic relations to Gaddafi's historic decision in 2003 to dismantle weapons of mass destruction and renounce terrorism as well as Libya's "excellent cooperation in response to common global threats faced by the civilized world since September 11, 2001."

        The reason they were the good old days: we were neither good nor old.
