McConnell on Gadhafi's death

| No Comments

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made the following remarks at a press conference today:

"Well, good afternoon, everyone. Let me just say quickly, on an entirely different subject, as I believe all of you know, there are reports that Colonel Gadhafi is dead. And that certainly clears the way for the Transitional National Council in Libya to begin to put together a representative government. And I am confident that we, along with the Europeans, will try to help them in that process. A number of the people who led the Transitional National Council were educated in the United States, and we're obviously hopeful that they will want to have a representative government and that they will be an ally of the United States."
