Lessons (Yet Un)Learned

Eugene Robinson has a question:

So what the hell are we doing? I realize that President Obama and his advisers have answered this question many times, but I feel it's necessary to keep asking until the answers begin to make sense.

Charles Krauthammer has an answer:

President Obama is proud of how he put together the Libyan operation. A model of international cooperation. All the necessary paperwork. Arab League backing. A Security Council resolution. (Everything but a resolution from the Congress of the United States, a minor inconvenience for a citizen of the world.) It's war as designed by an Ivy League professor.

Starting to understand now, Eugene? We've been trying to tell you this stuff for three years now.
