McCain Wants U.S. to Continue Assisting Libyan Rebels

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) thinks that the U.S. “should continue to take a very active role in Libya through airpower and assistance to anti-Libyan military forces,” The Hill reports.

Speaking on Fox News on Thursday night, McCain said that even though the Obama administration "dithered," the U.S. can provide useful support to help remove Libyan dictator Col. Moammar Gadhafi from power.

"I think that we can through humanitarian assistance, I think that [through] providing arms and some intelligence and other things, to the anti-Gadhafi forces, that they can succeed," McCain said. "And I believe that American military power in the air and with other kinds of assistance, they can still prevail, despite the dithering back and forth that has been going on."

McCain is Ranking Member on the Senate Armed Services Committee.
