‘obama moved at warp speed on libya’

Steve Clemons (The Washington Note): ….President Obama has been criticized by many on the political left and right for moving too slowly in reacting to Libya – and while I have been one constantly urging caution – there is simply no truth to the notion that Obama dragged his heels in orchestrating action there.

Obama and his team … moved at warp speed compared to other potential and real humanitarian disasters to with the US and international community needed to respond.

Consider these cases (see here)

….Thus, by any standard … the decisions made by the Obama White House – whether one liked or disliked those decisions – happened at an incredible rate.

…. there is a tsunami of change happening now and the US needs to be careful about getting drawn in too deeply into any particular part of this transition … all that said, Obama and his team are moving at a comparatively lightning rate of speed on Libya – and simultaneously managing many other issues and crises at the same time…

I don’t agree with everything this White House does – but I have tremendous respect for the fact that Obama and his team have changed the dynamics of response to potential and real mass human tragedy.
