Obama on Libya Aftermath: US Was 'Not Sufficiently Attentive'

President Obama said the U.S. did not properly handle the aftermath in Libya.

In an interview with Fox News earlier this year, the president cited the lack of planning for Libya post-intervention as the worst mistake of his presidency.

“Probably failing to plan for the day after, what I think was the right thing to do, in intervening in Libya,” he said.

In today’s press conference, the president defended the new air campaign in Libya, saying it was requested by the United Nations-backed government and vital in the fight against ISIS.
