Shameful: Obama Parties It Up While Americans Stranded in Libya
Never let an international crisis or even a botched charter boat evacuation get in the way of a good party…
‘The ferry carrying American and international citizens from Libya to Malta is finally underway,’ U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley tweeted.
According to the State Department there are 285 passengers on board the Dolores, including 167 U.S. citizens and 118 people of other nationalities.
President Obama has been under intense criticism for his muted response to the bloodshed in Libya, with speculation that Colonel Gaddafi had intimidated the White House into silence by blocking the evacuation of U.S. citizens.
And last night, while the Dolores remained stranded, the president enjoyed a White House pop concert in celebration of Black History month.
