    Re: Should prez Obama try to free those captured girls in Nigeria

    The last thing we need is for the US to get involved in yet another international conflict. We've screwed things up enough, time to call it a wrap, bring everyone home, and stop sticking our nose where it doesn't belong. The US has a poor track record when it comes to international policy, and it's quite likely they don't want our help anyway.

    If Nigeria asked us to come in and help I think most Americans could get behind that.

    But if anybody REALLY wants to take a peek behind the curtain to see why the wizard is REALLY pushing for a Nigerian intervention....

    So, in other words, busy lying to congress while not doing his job. Gotcha. That's Kerry for you.

    Btw, the SOS has a huge personnel complement there in Foggy Bottom. Good grief, world situations like this are precisely what diplomats do.

    Whatever Kerry says to Congress, you just called it a lie while not doing his job.
    I see you've caught up to Caqntor's technique of false-equivalency.

    On this thread, I've already noticed non-DEM posters heading in a half-dozen directions, expecting Obama to heed them all .

    You brought up Kerry lying to Congress.
    while your party continues to fund-raise of Rep. Gowdy's committee/pretty face after Gowdy told them to STOP.
