President Obama’s Greatest Foreign Policy Regret?

The President on intervention in Libya: “I think we underestimated—our European partners underestimated—the need to come in full force. 

If you’re going to do this, then it’s the day after Gaddafi’s gone, when everybody’s feeling good, and everybody’s holding up posters saying ‘Thank you America’—at that moment there has to be a much more aggressive effort to rebuild societies that didn’t have any civic traditions.”
