President Obama Breaks His Silence On Libya

Check out the video above of President Obama speaking at National Defense University on Monday evening. He finally updated the nation about why the U.S. and our allies are in conflict (read: WAR) with Libya. The president attempted to address the naysayers, haters, and flat-out confused people (like me) about our purpose for being there in the first place.
The short answer is that we had to stop Libya’s leader Col. Muammar Gaddafi from continuing to kill his own people. It wasn’t a good look for them and would have been a pretty heavy weight on the American consciousness.
There were some deeper explanations about our national security interests, other wars, and the negative chatter in Washington about the topic. Take a view for yourself…
