The Lindsey Graham Quote of the Day

From a scrum on the Hill earlier, as he discussed whether military options, humanitarian aid options, or any other new strategies should be discussed in Libya.

I would love to give arms to opposition forces, but I don't know who they are, and I don't know what they believe in... One thing I've learned from Afghanistan and Iraq is that you need to know who you're dealing with. There are 30 different tribes in Libya.


This is good advice, no matter how many previous times the advice wasn't heeded.
