Obama Administration Continues Pursuit of Endgame for Libya

In another sign that the Obama administration is moving toward an endgame in Libya, the United States is seeking a refuge for Qaddafi in the event of a settlement. The refuge will likely be in another African nation that has “not signed or ratified the Rome Statute, which requires nations to abide by commands from the international court.”

Like Curt Weldon’s diplomatic mission to Libya that I discussed in A Responsible Endgame for Libya, I believe America’s effort to find a refuge for Qaddafi is another positive sign that the Obama administration is seeking a diplomatic solution for Libya.

Such an end could not come soon enough as the six countries providing 60 aircraft in the conflict (Britain, Norway, Denmark, France, Canada and Belgium) are straining to meet mission requirements as their exhausted pilots continue to bomb Libyan targets.

The sooner President Obama can end United States involvement in his “humanitarian” war, the better.
