Oh, fer cryin’ out loud:

The two senior administration lawyers contended that American forces have not been in “hostilities” at least since April 7, when NATO took over leadership in maintaining a no-flight zone in Libya, and the United States took up what is mainly a supporting role — providing surveillance and refueling for allied warplanes — although unmanned drones operated by the United States periodically fire missiles as well.

They argued that United States forces are at little risk in the operation because there are no American troops on the ground and Libyan forces are unable to exchange meaningful fire with American forces.

So it’s only war when the other guy shoots back? And I suppose the kid getting beat up at school isn’t in a fight. This is the logic coming from the President who’s taken the lead to combat school bullying.

To paraphrase Dick Nixon: It’s not bullying when the President does it.
