Obama admits worst mistake of his presidency奥巴马承认八年任期内犯的最大错误是……

据CNN报道,当地时间4月10日,奥巴马接受了美国福克斯新闻频道采访,在被问及“任期内犯的最大错误是什么”时,奥巴马表示:“是对在干涉利比亚之后所发生的事情缺乏计划,尽管当时我做了自以为是正确的决定。”

上个月,奥巴马曾做出过相似的表态。当时奥巴马在接受《大西洋月刊》专访时表示,尽管当时的干涉行动“已经尽可能做到最好”,但当今的利比亚情况仍然是“一团糟”。

奥巴马认为,在采取干涉行动前,美国对利比亚内部部落割据的情况估计不足,导致“我们与当地人开展交流、开展训练和供应物资的能力都极大地下降了”。此外,干涉行动中的盟友——英国与法国——“不给力”,也是利比亚陷入混乱的重要原因。

President Barack Obama said the worst mistake of his presidency was a lack of planning for the aftermath of the 2011 toppling of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

"Probably failing to plan for the day after what I think was the right thing to do in intervening in Libya," he said in a Fox News interview aired Sunday.
 
This is not the first time in recent weeks he has talked about Libya and the NATO-led intervention which resulted in Gadhafi’s death in October of that year, months after NATO first intervened.
 
In a profile published last month in The Atlantic, the President told author Jeffrey Goldberg that British Prime Minister David Cameron became "distracted by a range of other things" after the operation.
 
Cameron, along with former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, took the brunt of Obama’s criticism.
 
Although Obama said he thinks the intervention went as well as it could, he views Libya today as a "mess."
 
Privately, according to the article, he refers to the troubled state as a "shit show."
 
In a statement to CNN, a National Security Council spokesman tried to qualify Obama’s remarks and reassure that the alliance between the United Kingdom and United States remains strong.
 
"Prime Minister Cameron has been as close a partner as the President has had, and we deeply value the UK’s contributions on our shared national security and foreign policy objectives which reflect our special and essential relationship," NSC spokesman Ned Price said.
 
In The Atlantic, Obama said he had more faith in Europeans "being invested in a follow-up" given their geographical "proximity" and largely blames their inaction for the "mess."
 
On Libya, Price said Obama has previously said and continues to believe that "all of us -- including the United States -- could have done more in the aftermath of the Libyan intervention."
 
Price said that the UK has "stepped up on a range of issues," including pressing fellow NATO members to increase defense spending.
 
In September, Obama also criticized the Libya intervention during a speech before the U.N. General Assembly.
 
"Our coalition could have and should have done more to fill a vacuum left behind," he had said.
 
Obama said in the Sunday interview that "saving the economy from a great depression" after the financial crisis in 2008 was his top White House accomplishment.
 
And -- as he has before -- he said his best day in the White House was when health care reform passed.
 
"We sat out on the Truman Balcony with all the staff that had worked so hard on it and I, I knew what it would mean for the families that I’d met who didn’t have health care," Obama said,
 
He also recounted that his worst day in the White House was "the day we traveled up to Newtown after Sandy Hook" when 20 children, mostly first-graders, were killed on December 14, 2012 at an elementary school. He spoke at a local prayer vigil two days later.
