Obama welcomes so-called terrorist evil-doers to UN...
President Obama yesterday led the warm welcome to the al qaeda linked Libyan rebels that have been officially recognized as the country’s new leaders and handed a seat at the UN General Assembly. More diligent observers found the spectacle rather unsettling, to say the least.
“Libya is a lesson in what the international community can achieve when we stand together as one,” said Obama after formally meeting the Libyan Rebels leader Mustafa Abdel-Jalil at the UN.
“Today the world is saying, in one unmistakable voice, ‘We will stand with you as you seize this moment of promise; as you reach for the freedom, the dignity and the opportunity you deserve,’ ” Obama stated, with many noting that the same ‘reach for freedom’ has been deemed to be unhelpful by US officials at the UN where the Palestinian people are concerned.
The president also vowed that the NATO bombardment of Libya would continue, albeit with the “protection” of civilians spin added.
“So long as the Libyan people are being threatened, the NATO-led mission to protect them will continue,” Obama told the summit
“And those still holding out must understand — the old regime is over, and it is time to lay down your arms and join the new Libya.”
