This is a clip of my conversation tonight with Rachel Maddow about the costs and benefits of the UN resolution authorizing any measure than occupation to protect the Libyan people from Moammer Gaddafi. I believe that we have some blind spots in our rush to help — but am very open to alternative assessments.
We’ve been in this place before, on the edge of making someone else’s war our own. I think that would be a significant mistake. The cameras are already shifting away from the protesters and rather to pictures of US and NATO warplanes and ships.
