WASHINGTON—On Monday, March 28 at 7:30PM ET, the President will deliver an address at the National Defense University in Washington, DC to update the American people on the situation in Libya, including the actions we’ve taken with allies and partners to protect the Libyan people from the brutality of Moammar Qaddafi, the transition to NATO command and control, and our policy going forward.
The speech will be pooled for TV and open to correspondents. More details, including press credentialing information, will be released as they become available.
vruz: just in time for congressional hearings. here’s how it works: when someone wants to market it to you, they appeal to your feelings and lobby you into a guilt trip to support their cause.
when something is really happening and facts are on your side, you cite the number of victims to reflect on the human pain that’s being caused. you cite loss of life and economic loss at least.
contrast the current situation with the egyptian revolution when people were being shot at overnight.
have you heard how many have died, or how many are in danger? all you hear is the evil, evil, ugly gaddafi is very very bad and he has a terrible taste for expensive fashion.
an appeal to your basic instincts works every time.
now, how about talking about some facts?
