War by Committee

Good grief. John Bolton: "This is a subject of ridicule, except it is deadly serious. It puts American lives in jeopardy. You cannot run wars by committee. . . . I think Congress and the general public need to return to this question: "Why is the President, so casually, giving up American command and control over American forces in this operation to any foreigners?"

Update. I saw this over on HotAir this morning. The name of the mission approved by Barry Obama is, "Operation Odyssey Dawn." Ed Morrissey suggests that Obama should have looked up "odyssey" in the dictionary, if his great Ivy League education didn't teach him what it means: "a long wandering or voyage, usually marked by many changes of fortune." Tweets someone called CanadianCynic: "Apparently, our Libyan adventure is called "Operation Odyssey Dawn" because "Operation Princess Rainbow Sparkle Pony" wasn't manly enough." Snort.

Update #2. So did the left believe all that crap they spewed during the George W. Bush years, or was it just faux outrage? Where is the anti-war left now?
