Understanding Obama: His One-World View and Foreign Policy

Did Obama really dither indecisively over the Middle East crises, or were his delays all part of the plan?

March 22, 2011 - by Tony Katz

The frantic, frenetic, high-pitched squeal from all sides of the political aisle could have deafened most any ears. When the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to institute a “no-fly zone” against Libya and its leader Moammar Gaddafi, there were shrieks of disgust. Where is President Obama? How could he allow this? And, conversely, what has taken him so long?

In 24-plus hours when the bombs began to fall on Libya (some 100 or more Tomahawks in the first bombardment), the shrieks continued. Isn’t this the anti-war president? How did he win a Nobel Prize? This is unconstitutional!

It is one of those rare moments: even though both sides come to the table from vastly different points of view, they have the same end game — what is President Obama doing? Even Louis Farrakhan, who I submit to you is an awful person, asked the question: “Who the hell do you think you are?”

It is blazingly obvious that for all the pundits’ talk about understanding Obama, none of them understand Obama. The Right does not understand the depths of his nature, and the Left does not understand his willingness to play them like pawns (see useful idiots.) Most importantly, neither side has grasped the proper context of Obama, and the fact that Libya has played out exactly as he wanted it to.
