Potential Hostage (or Worse) Americans Trapped in Libya: So far, true to his character, Obama sends in a ferry

And, I note, while on or around that ferry "stuck" in a Libyan port, all these Americans are sitting ducks for whatever faction decides to make a little trouble:
"We're in the 10th day of this blowup -- 10th day! And apparently the military, on its own initiative, is trying to provide options to the national governing authority that it has just as apparently not requested. Notice the wording in the very last sentence above. "Will provide" and "should he need them." That says to me he hasn't requested them and the military is trying to get ahead of the game without any guidance..... Instead, 11 days later those citizens get … a ferry? -- Americans left to take the ferry from war-torn Libya « Hot Air

Your Say

Obama promises to back the winning side. That should secure the safety of those on the ferry.

Oh! A ferry. I thought you were talking about DOMA for a second.

When you think about it, every time any sort of foreign-policy crisis (or even semi-crisis) has come up for which condemning Israel is unrelated, there has been an extreme level of detachment from the president.

Remember, this is a man whose record is voting "present." And he's staying true to form.

I heard a news report on the radio this afternoon that all Americans have been evacuated from Libya. I don't know whether that is true or not.

The carrier question is justified. Ollie North on Sean Hannity's radio show this afternoon said it was the first time in 31 years that no American carrier was in the Med. I assume he is in a position to know.
