Iraq War Cheerleader Peggy Noonan Is Now Demanding That Questions Be Answered About Our Military Intervention In Libya

I'm so glad to see the Wall Street Journal's "very serious" op-ed writer Peggy Noonan got some attention on C-SPAN's Washington Journal where her column could get some air time without anyone there to let the audience know what a huge flaming hypocrite the woman is.

C-SPAN's Robb Harleston read from her op-ed this past weekend criticizing Obama's decision to intervene in Libya without of course giving the viewers there an ounce of perspective and reminding them that this woman was cheer leading our invasion of Iraq. Apparently Nooners only loves military interventions when a Republican does it. If it's a Democrat, she's demanding answers about what we're doing, how long we're going to be there, why we decided that this was a good idea and if it's going to go on forever. It's too bad she wasn't asking the same questions before and after we invaded Iraq instead of doing the rah rah routine for Dubya.

Here's her op-ed from this week that they were quoting -- The Speech Obama Hasn't Given.

And here's more from Eric Boehlert at Media Matters on Noonan's hypocrisy and her attempts to pretend she wasn't one of the cheer leaders out there with our invasion of Iraq -- Peggy Noonan's shameless attempt to rewrite (her own) history.

I await her next appearance on Morning Joe to have a "very serious" discussion on her column where the "liberal" MSNBC can give her some more unwarranted face time as well.
