John Heilemann on Hardball: Qaddafi Death Backlash


Our own John Heilemann visited Hardball today to discuss whether the mission to go after Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi was worth the risks involved. A sort of “lead from behind” tactic, as an Obama official recently put it, has been criticized by Republicans including Michele Bachmann. “It would behoove a lot of Republicans who made fun of [Obama’s Libya strategy] to stand up and at least acknowledge that in this case it actually worked,” Heilemann said. It certainly did.
