No-Drama Obama

A reader writes:

I am completely at a loss with your analysis of the Libya situation. It seems to me that Obama's handling of it is as deliberate and "cool" as anything else he does. He waited until he was ready, until it was obvious that the uprising needed help, then he acted. And yes, he went to Brazil. It's his job!

He sure doesn't look as if he thinks he just launched a new war. Maybe he thinks the avoidance of a massacre in Benghazi has already vindicated the mission - since that was its proximate goal.
