Barack Obama rarely admits any kind of fault in himself, so it came as a surprise to many this week when he confessed his biggest mistake as president.
According to CNN, Obama claims the worst mistake of his presidency was not planning for the aftermath of the 2011 toppling of Libyan dictator Muammar Gadhafi.
“Probably failing to plan for the day after what I think was the right thing to do in intervening in Libya,” he said in a Fox News interview that aired Sunday.
This isn’t the first time recently that Obama talked about Libya and the NATO-led intervention that led to Gadhafi’s death. In a profile published last month in The Atlantic, Obama told author Jeffrey Goldberg that British Prime Minister David Cameron became “distracted by a range of other things” after the operation.
Though Obama believes the intervention went as well as it could, he said he views Libya today as a “mess.” The article says he privately calls Libya a “sh*t show.”
Personally, we find it difficult to pick just one mistake out of the numerous flaws in Obama’s presidency. Perhaps his worst mistake is dividing our country by race more than it’s ever been divided before, or letting millions of illegals and Muslim “refugees” into our nation. Regardless of his biggest mistake, Obama has made far to many mistakes while in office. SHARE this story if you think Obama should be impeached!
