Five senators push Obama to do more in Libya
Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I) of Connecticut
He has been famously independent – and a close ally of McCain on the Iraq war and anti-terrorism – ever since.
On March 14, Lieberman and McCain introduced a resolution to recognize the provisional revolutionary government in Libya and establish a no-fly zone over Libya.
Lieberman is pushing to end the Qaddafi regime. If Qaddafi survives, “this peaceful democratic revolution in the Arab world ends here,” he said in a floor speech defending the resolution. “If Qaddafi survives this, he is going to cause no end of trouble for the United States and anyone else in the world who stood with the freedom fighters.”
