MSNBC Andrea Mitchell Now and Then – Obama in Libya is appropriate, Bush was Blood for Oil

“This intervention could wind up being Barack Obama’s finest hour. His intentions are pure — this is a humanitarian mission, not blood for oil. We’ve got a coalition with us, the United Nations, the Arab League. And the diplomacy has truly been masterful — future military planners will surely use Obama’s Libya template as a guide.”
— NBC chief foreign correspondent Andrea Mitchell on Meet the Press

“It’s terrible that Saddam Hussein is butchering his people, but the United States simply cannot send in the Marines to take on every dictator. And, while the Bush administration likes to brag about the 30 nations in their coalition, it will be the United States that does most of the fighting in Iraq. I fear this is the wrong war at the wrong time and in the wrong place.”
— Mitchell talking about the Iraq war on Meet the Press, April 1, 2003.
