Full story: TwinCities.com

Moammar Gadhafi's forces retreated from the strategic city of Ajdabiya on Saturday, running for dozens of miles back along the coast in the first significant advance for Libyan rebels since U.S. and European airstrikes began a week ago.

Yeah Obama is supporting Al Quaida. The rebel leader has already stated that there are some Al Quaida in the ranks.

Way to go Obama.

I like the picture. Those guys definitely look capable of building a peaceful, democratic society in Libya.

After all, their leader al-Hasidi has been free from U.S custody for over two years. I'm sure he's learned his lesson.

And his troops are battle hardened after years of fighting American soldiers in Iraq. They even have a large Al Qaeda element to assist. And with U.S planes providing air support for them, I bet they will win.

I mean... seriously. I knew we abandoned the War on Terror once Obama was elected.

I just didn't know that we had switched sides.

This makes me happy. Still, I'm waiting for President Bachmann in 2012.

Obama consults the Arab League but he doesn't consult the United States Congress. That is an impeachable offense. Where is the outrage?

Why America is even involved in Libyas civil war is beyond any commons sense or logical comprehension. Just watching those idiot rebels makes me want to avoid paying any taxes at all. They're short on ammo and arms so what do those dim witted idiots do, shoot their guns in the air wasting ammo knowing full well America is even more dim witted than they are and we'll supply them all the ammo they need to waste by shooting into the air at nothing or maybe a tin can on the ground, what a joke. I am coming to realize America is more the idiots than they are. Wow! What a low blow America, knowing full well we are even dumber than a bunch of haphazard ragtag team of mutton heads.
