Analysis: President Obama's Speech on Libya

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

President Obama has faced criticism from the left and the right regarding his decision to join coalition forces in enforcing a no-fly zone in Libya. The President addressed those critics last night in a speech to the nation, saying he was committed to keeping American troops off the ground. He also appealed to our morality by saying, “I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action.” David Sanger, chief Washington correspondent for The New York Times, dissects Obama's speech in terms of policy and how it might play in the capital.
