Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) “said Sunday he supports taking out Muammar Qadhafi,” POLITICO reports.
Following reports Saturday that one of Qadhafi’s sons and three grandsons may have been been killed in NATO attacks, Graham said the allies should be doing more to take out the Libyan leader.
"Wherever Qadhafi goes, he is a legitimate military target," Graham said on "Fox News Sunday." "He’s the command and control source. He’s not the legitimate leader of Libya and [the] way to get this to end is to go after the people around him and his support system."
Asked whether such a move would be illegal — international law prohibits the assassination of national leaders — Graham said plainly and clearly he believed Qadhafi has forfeited that title and therefore, that immunity.
"In my view, he’s not a foreign leader, he’s a murderer," Graham said.
