President Obama may say airstrikes in Libya aren’t hostilities, but it doesn’t get much more hostile than attempted assassination.

Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) says Adm. Samuel Locklear, the top U.S. admiral involved in airstrikes, admitted last month that NATO forces were aiming to kill Gaddafi—a role that Locklear said he felt fit under the alliance’s mandate.

In addition, Locklear reportedly told Turner that he anticipated American boots on the ground following Gaddafi’s fall. Turner announced the comments during a House debate over a resolution authorizing the Libyan attacks, which was defeated. Turner opposes the intervention.

The assassination of a nation's political leader(s) by another nation or alliance is a violation of international law. That was carved in stone at Geneva.

It seems that those people who most insist on following international laws are the first to violate those laws.

Well, they haven't killed him yet.
