"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Wag the Dog?

There's chatter in the blogosphere based supposedly on chatter in the military/intelligence communities that Obama will hit some al Qaeda targets in Libya with drone strikes over the weekend and before the Monday night debate on foreign policy.  

In 1992 Bill Clinton rushed back to Arkansas at a crucial moment of the Democratic primary season to preside at the execution of a mentally deficient murderer.  

In 2012 will Barack Obama, the anti-war candidate, try to salvage his Presidency by extra-judicial murder of Libyan citizens based on what will essentially be accusations by the American military/intelligence establishment that they were "connected" to the murders of our ambassador and three other Americans?

It's interesting how easily leftists resort to taking human lives when their electoral prospects are threatened.  

Eggs, omelette.   You get the picture.
