Hennessy's View

Domine, non sum dignus

No “Vital National Interest”

ABC News is not known as President Obama’s loudest critic. More like his Amen corner. So it’s headline screams even louder:

Defense Secretary: Libya Did Not Pose Threat to U.S., Was Not ‘Vital National Interest’ to Intervene

The rest of Jake Tapper’s story gets more disturbing.

* The President and the Defense Secretary seem to disagree on national interest      * The Secretary of State cannot articulate a consistent US policy      * Hillary Clinton seems to believe that the UN is a legal alternative to the US Congress  

More than week into a war that lacks even the thinnest thread of Constitutionality, Barack Obama seems clueless. To the rest of the world, our whole country must look adrift.

Indeed, we are.
