Obama joined U.S. politicians and ordinary Americans in welcoming the demise of Gaddafi, who was for decades regarded as a nemesis of American presidents, and also claimed some of the credit for the Libyan strongman’s downfall.
But he also appeared to distance Washington from deeper entanglement in the North African oil-producing nation at a time of economic woes at home, placing responsibility for Libya’s future squarely on the shoulders of the fractious interim leadership in Tripoli.
“This marks the end of a long and painful chapter for the people of Libya who now have the opportunity to determine their own destiny in a new and democratic Libya,” Obama said in the White House Rose Garden.
Obama made clear he considered Gaddafi’s death a validation of his “leading from behind” strategy that had drawn criticism at home for casting the United States in a support role in the NATO air assault in Libya. Some of his Republican foes see it as an “Obama doctrine” that abdicates U.S. global leadership. SOURCE
