Kirk: Libya Won’t Need U.S. Help

Sen. Mark Kirk (above) was part of a delegation of Senators to Libya that was led by John McCain and included Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio.

Kirk also said, “The United States is in the early stages of securing [Libyan] surface-to-air missiles, of particular concern are the more advanced stinger-like missiles that came from the former Soviet Union. I think that aggressive U.S. action on that is warranted, given how many of them are out there.”

He added that he was “reassured about the nuclear and chemical stockpiles. It does, from all indications, appear that the United States and our allies, the TNC, have a pretty good handle on those stockpiles.”
