Marco Rubio is in Libya with John McCain and Lindsey Graham, but I have no idea why. Rubio is one of the new senators I was glad to see come on board, but now I'm not so sure. I questioned his views on foreign policy in earlier posts, but I thought he might just be showing off his toughness. Standing alongside McCain and Graham in Libya, though, is going too far, especially when he talks about Libya in terms of freedom and the wonderful Arab Spring. Perhaps Rubio knows something I don't know, but the reports of the Muslim Brotherhood gaining influence and calling for the death of all zionists doesn't bode well for liberty.
Plus, Rubio might want to explain who's leading the Libyan revolution and what's happened to the missing weapons. Rather than validating the Libyan operation, Rubio ought to use his energy to make sure presidents can't simply send our military into action against countries which haven't attacked us or declared war against us. If Rubio is just another neo-conservative, we can do without his influence.
