Questioning an administration is so confusing

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton questions the patriotism of Americans who object to our war “time-limited scope-limited kinetic military action” in Libya:

But the bottom line is, whose side are you on? Are you on Qadhafi’s side or are you on the side of the aspirations of the Libyan people and the international coalition that has been created to support them? For the Obama Administration, the answer to that question is very easy.

Can somebody please reconcile Secretary Clinton’s ever-so-subtle rhetorical question with Senator Clinton’s heartfelt beliefs about challenging any president who orders troops to war whatever the heck it is we’re doing in Libya? I’m trying to figure out what the guidelines are.

I hope one of my enlightened and nuanced progressive betters can explain it all to me. It’s so hard to keep the current truth straight.
