My letter to the Philadelphia Inquirer re: Was the Libyan intervention legal?

Re: White House is seeking to share blame over Libya

Dear Sirs:
As described in the above report by Josh Lederman and Kathleen Hennessey, found on page A10 of yesterday’s Inquirer, the White House is concerned primarily with seeking a better outcome from future military interventions based upon its past failures. The bigger and more important question for Americans is whether the Libyan intervention was legal. Muammar Gadhafi, whom NATO helped depose and who later was killed, asked the right question. Why was NATO attacking his country when his country had not attacked a NATO country? Is America is a nation of laws or of men? President Obama–and, I fear, most politicians– believe the latter.
