“Ultimately the Future of Libya lies in the hands of the Libyan People”
Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) released the following statement in response to the President’s address to the nation on military intervention in Libya:
“American combat forces have performed the mission they were asked to do with excellence and bravery. My thoughts are with the brave men and women of the US military and international coalition who are implementing the No Fly Zone and with the people of Libya fighting for democracy and basic human rights against a brutal dictator.
“I am encouraged by the success of the mission so far and the strong international coalition that is implementing the No Fly Zone. I look forward to the briefing Congress will get on Wednesday from the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense and other top administration officials. I will wait on further comment until my questions are answered at that time. Ultimately the future of Libya lies in the hands of the Libyan people.”
