“Today, a coalition of countries, including the United States, took action to protect the Libyan people. This military response, while long overdue in our estimation, is nonetheless the absolute right thing to do.
“Moammar Qaddafi is an international menace and a dictator who has violently brutalized his own people. Not only do we have a moral obligation to act, it is in the strategic best interest of the United States to see the Qaddafi regime replaced by a democratic one that will respect basic civil liberties and the rule of law.
“We believe that President Obama should go even further and recognize the rebel leadership as the legitimate government in Libya and, if need be, should authorize the use of surgical air strikes to remove the Qaddafi regime.
“Respect for basic human rights shouldn’t be determined by geography and freedom shouldn’t know borders.”
