The ‘Michele Bachmann’s A Joke Show’ continues, this time, in friendly territory. But even there, on the Foxnews Network, Michele Bachmann – another wanna be Republican candidate for the 2012 presidential campaign – couldn’t answer a question truthfully.
The conversation below is about the military actions in Libya.
Interviewed by Chris Wallace of Fox, Michele was put on the spot. Caught like a deer in the headlights, she appeared ill-prepared and quite frankly, ill-informed on the most basics of war ethics – you don’t believe what the enemy says, especially when the enemy is Qaudaffi;
WALLACE: We’re going to have Lindsey Graham on in a moment. Is he wrong when he says in fact we should get more deeply involved and in fact should take out Qaddafi? I would also like your reaction to the missile strike overnight that apparently killed some of Qaddafi’s family.
BACHMANN: Well, remember, Defense Secretary Gates said we were not attacked by Qaddafi, nor were we threatened attack. He also said we have no vital national American interest in Libya. Those are the two prerequisites for our United States military entry.
He was later asked what our military goal was in Libya. He couldn’t state what our military goal is. What in the world are we doing in Libya if we don’t know what our military goal is? And if we still aren’t sure about who the opposition forces are? What possible benefits–
WALLACE: When you say the opposition, you mean the rebels?
BACHMANN: The rebels. What possible benefit could there be for the United States if in fact we could potentially be benefiting Al Qaida of North Africa or Hezbollah, which is a very strong likelihood?
This would be a terrible mistake for this reason, because if we give Al Qaida of North Africa access to sustained revenues from oil, they could continue to fund global terrorism. How is that going to help anyone? This is a disaster in the making.
That’s why President Obama’s policy of leading from behind is an outrage. And people should be outraged at the foolishness of the president’s decision. He said he wanted to go in for humanitarian purposes, and overnight we are hearing that potentially 10,000 to 30,000 people could have been killed in the strike. Those are some of the reports.
WALLACE: In the NATO strikes, 10,000 to 30,000 people?
BACHMANN: There is a report that came out from an ambassador from Tripoli that said we won’t know until we’re able to go in.
WALLACE: But did the NATO strikes kill 10,000 to 30,000 people?
WALLACE: So you’re believing the Qaddafi regime?
BACHMANN: We don’t know. We don’t know. All I’m saying is that –
WALLACE: Do you think Muammar Qaddafi is a reliable person?
BACHMANN: I don’t think anyone thinks that.
Get your talking points straight Michele, or maybe you missed the page that explains how to avoid answering a question.
