Santorum: Obama 'missed an opportunity' in Libya


(CNN) – Former Republican Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania on Tuesday criticized President Obama's approach to the ongoing situation in Libya.

Appearing on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight," the potential 2012 candidate said Obama has been "disengaged" and should have acted earlier to institute a no-fly zone in the African country.

"The president hesitated, not even hesitated, he did nothing. He sort of sat back, made no comment," Santorum said. "He really missed an opportunity to be a positive force."

    Really? Shut up with your misinformation. Obama denounce and condemn gadafi regime from the start and sought international action against the regime through UN security counsel. Do you guys want US start bombing libya without international approval and support? Pathetic.

    What...no one has made any comments...don't figure.
    I'll throw in one...there is a list a mile long to include Russia and China of people being abused by their leaders and we do nothing, so what threshold has to be met for the US to intervene?
