President Obama On Libya: We Will Stand With You

September 22, 2011

President Obama made clear at the United Nations on September 20th, that the United States supports Libya and shares its excitement at the promise of a post- Qaddafi future.   The President noted that the day was won by the Libyan people and that their new-found ability to walk the streets of their homeland free from tyranny is attributable to their own bravery and sacrifice.  The President admitted that though the road ahead for the Libyan people would not be easy, but that the United States stands with the Libyan people.  We look forward to working together with the Libyan people, and with our European allies such as Estonia, to provide support to the newly-free nation.
