Obama hails death of Muammar Gaddafi as foreign policy success
President warns other Middle Eastern dictators, particularly Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, that they could be next

President Barack Obama hailed the lifting of the "dark tyranny" over Libya after the new government confirmed Muammar Gaddafi had been killed, issuing a warning to other dictators in the Middle East – and particularly Syria – that they could be next.

Although Obama did not name Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, it was he Obama had in mind when he said the rule of the iron fist in the Middle East is inevitably coming to an end. Those leaders that try to deny the push for democracy will not succeed, he predicted.

Obama was speaking in the White House Rose Garden after footage was shown worldwide of what appeared to be Gaddafi's bloody corpse. "One of the world's longest-serving dictators is no more," the president said.

The Libyans had won their revolution and "the dark shadow of tyranny has been lifted," Obama said.

Given the number of false claims in recent weeks that Gaddafi had been killed or captured, Obama was careful not to say categorically that he was dead.
