RightPundits will carry the Obama Libya speech live feed as well as host a live chat blog for those whom wish to make their comments known. The speech takes place tonight at 7:30pm. President Barack Obama will address the American people from the National Defense University on the conflict in Libya. Known as Operation Odyssey Dawn, the U.S. and NATO lead a coalition of forces, currently enforcing a No-Fly Zone over Libya, as well as attacking ground troops belonging to Muammar al-Qaddafi. The live-chat will begin at 7pm EDT and will last at least two hours and possibly longer if you, the audience, demand it! Obama′s speech is expected to last only 25 minutes or so.
Many people believe that President Obama has dropped the ball on Libya. For more than two weeks during the initial unrest, Obama did nothing beyond make a few statements. Only after the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution on March 17 was any action taken.
The resolution itself is being called into question by many governments, including Russia and China. Originally, it called for just providing humanitarian protection for the Libyan rebels from Qaddafi. However, the military operation certainly has appeared to have been expended to taking sides in a rebellion/civil war. Rebel forces are steadily driving westward across Libya as airstrikes hammer away at Qaddafi′s army.
As we watch the Obama Libya speech live feed here tonight at RightPundits, feel free to also join us at our live chat blog, too! President Obama will speak tonight from the National Defense University in Washington, DC starting at approximately 7:30pm EDT.
