Reid Statement On Situation In Libya

Washington, D.C.—Nevada Senator Harry Reid issued the following statement today:

“The American people stand behind the people of Libya as they bring an end to Moammar Qaddafi’s regime of murder and oppression. I commend the President for his leadership, and the members of our armed forces, NATO, and our allies for protecting the Libyan people as they pursue their right to freedom, to self-governance, and to see this ruthless dictator brought to justice. The situation in Libya is still fluid, and the potential for violence is not over. But as we approach a post-Qaddafi era, the international community will look to the leaders of the opposition to implement a peaceful transition to democracy. I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress, President Obama and our allies to encourage that process.”
