The question of the day, posed by Ed Morrissey:
"Does Qaddafi’s death make the Libyan war a success?"
The answer is YES. Depending on your perspective.
1) The Libyan people are liberated from a tyrant's grip.
2) The war ended favorably for them, with his execution.
3) The war was, therefore, for them, a success.
But for America? Make the case that it ended in our favor.
Whereas Muammar Qaddafi was once a terrorist, when George W. Bush overthrew the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq in 2003, Qaddafi renounced terrorism and dismantled his nuclear program. It was at that point that I lost all interest in the man.
He's dead. And I don't care.
