On MSNBC’s 'Morning Joe', Pat Buchanan Says President ‘Didn’t Think It Through’ Before Deciding On Libya

(By Mark Joyella, Mediaite) - On MSNBC’s 'Morning Joe', Pat Buchanan suggested President Obama “didn’t think it through when he started the war.” The panel were discussing an op-ed piece by CNN’s Fareed Zakaria that says “presidents want to be leaders of great causes.”

On the question of whether the U.S. wants to “own” Libya, Buchanan charged the president didn’t do his homework, which got Mika Brzezinski fired up. “Wait a minute. I think it’s unfair to say he didn’t think it through. I think they sat there and thought and thought, we don’t want to start a war, and we certainly don’t want to start a war alone.”
