Krauthammer: Why Hasn't Obama Addressed The Nation On Libya?

DR. CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: "I can understand the administration saying because of the situation in Benghazi they had to rush and couldn't get Congressional approval. But, what is not explicable is why the president hasn't addressed the nation. When in 1998, there was an attack on the embassies in Uganda and Tanzania. And there was a single attack of retaliation by the United States. Not a military operation near the size and scope of what is happening now. The President of the United States, Clinton, went on television and explained what he was doing a so far, this president who doesn't like to use the word war. He won't use the word War on Terror. As Steve has said, he doesn't want to talk about the war in Afghanistan -- has played this as if it were a piece of legislation which we'll talk about later. The other oddity here, apart from not wanting to talk about war is wanting to hide and disguise and then hand off American leadership in this operation. Which is obviously indispensable."
