Today, Mark Udall made the following statement on U.S. action in Libya:
“Like all Americans, I deplore and condemn the violence against Libyans who are asserting their rights to basic freedoms. Colonel Qaddafi has been a brutal dictator and is viciously attacking his own people in order to maintain control, and he gave the international community no choice but to act .
“Importantly, the United States is acting in concert with the United Nations. France, Britain and other nations are joining us in enforcing the no-fly zone.
“The international community has given Qaddafi a clear choice, and made it clear that there are serious consequences to ignoring the will of his people.”
