Paul still critical of US involvement in Libya
GOP candidate Ron Paul says end of Gadhafi regime presents new dangers, may help al-Qaida
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul says the apparent overthrow of Moammar Gadhafi's regime in Libya does not justify the United States' involvement there and may end up delivering al-Qaida what he calls "another prize."

The Texas congressman has made his mark in the presidential race as a strict libertarian who would scale back the role of the federal government in domestic and foreign policy.

Paul was asked on "Fox News Sunday" whether getting rid of Gadhafi was a good thing. He conceded that it was, but that did not mean the long-term result would be good for the United States.

Paul said U.S. foreign policy should be focused solely on national security. Instead, he says, its foreign policy has drifted toward picking dictators around the world.
