"We've been reaching out to many different Libyans who are attempting to organize in the east... We are ready and prepared to offer any type of assistance."Go figure, the Obama White House standing up for the liberty of the downtrodden. Don't get me wrong, this is certainly a good thing and the United States should help those being oppressed, but where was this two years ago when Iran was murdering protesters on the street?
I guess at the time it didn't get enough media coverage. Either that or President Obama still believed he could talk (without preconditions!) to crazed dictators and authoritarian presidents.

Now it's a different tune. Now everything is different because it helps them politically.
