Gideon Rose: US needs Libya exit plan

Foreign affairs analyst says the Obama administration has not planned for the long haul.

    Gideon Rose, who was a national security adviser under former US president Bill Clinton, says the US administration has no exit plan for its military intervention in Libya.

    While officials believed they could easily put a stop to reported massacres carried out by Muammar Gaddafi's forces, Rose says the longer term issues stemming from removing Gaddafi from power will require further US involvement.

    He spoke to Al Jazeera about the risks of US action in Libya on March 31.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
