“Dear Lord, Please Make President Obama Lucky.”

So says Thomas Friedman about our adventure in Libya.  It’s better to be lucky than good, some say, but I fear that our hapless President is neither. 

No one seems to know what our goals or, or what means we are willing to use to achieve them.  We don’t seem to know who is going to be in charge and for how long.  We also don’t seem to know who it is we are helping — the rebels might be freedom fighters, or they might be tribal thugs or al Qaeda types, or they might be some mix of all of the above.  Whoever the rebels are, they are now heading the wrong direction.

I fervently join Friedman’s plea for luck, since we don’t seem to have the skill or resolve at the top of the command chain to rely on anything else.
