U.S. Senator Susan Collins, the Ranking Republican on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, today released this statement regarding the situation in Libya:

“Colonel Gaddafi was a brutal tyrant who repressed the Libyan people for decades. It is my hope and expectation that he will be removed from power and that the Libyan people will soon know freedom and justice. Nevertheless, we still know little about the opposition, and it concerns me that Eastern Libya has been a source of foreign fighters in Iraq and recruits for Al Qaeda. The Administration’s plans for future U.S. involvement also remain vague and potentially very costly.”
