Today, Congressman Joe Donnelly released the following statement after the death of Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi.

"The death of Qaddafi is welcome news to the Libyan people who are seeking greater freedoms and an end to brutal oppression. In June, I voted for a resolution granting authorization for the limited use of force in Libya and opposing the use of U.S. ground forces there because I believed ending Qaddafi's regime was in our national security interests. While this resolution unfortunately did not pass, I believe focused, limited support from the United States was the right thing to offer in ending this regime."
