Re: Who are we backing in Libya?
Does it really matter who they are? To be quite honest, I don’t care who the rebels are; I want to know who is going to lead them, and where they’re being led. I could support US involvement to oust Qaddafi for a more Western-friendly government, but I don’t think we should waste our money and resources to replace Qaddafi with, say, the Muslim Brotherhood. That’s one of the problems with this sort of Immaculate Intervention, we don’t know who we’re supporting until it’s too late. To put it another way, "We rushed into this without a plan, now we're out in the middle, going in circles."

But if the right of free and open debate is taken away from the minority party, and the millions of Americans who ask us to be their voice, I fear that the already partisan atmosphere in Washington will be poisoned to the point where no one will be able to agree on anything. – Sen Barack Obama
Again, I urge my Republican colleagues not to go through with changing these rules. In the long run, it is not a good result for either party. One day, Democrats will be in the majority again. And this rule change will be no fairer to a Republican minority than it is to a Democratic minority. – Sen Barack Obama
