Representative Marino, you will note, is a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Keep that in mind.

Mr. Marino, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said he hopes to ask questions of administration officials at a committee hearing today. He questioned whether humanitarian reasons are good enough for intervention.

Marino should have stopped there. But… he didn’t.

“Where does it stop?” he said. “Do we go into Africa next? I don’t want to sound callous or cold, but this could go on indefinitely around the world.”

“Do we go into Africa next?” Mr. Marino might want to consult a map, like this one, that shows Libya is in Africa. Sorry, Dude.
