The Libyan rebels’ advance into Tripoli has so far drawn relatively muted reactions from Republican presidential candidates, some of whom criticized President Obama’s decision to intervene in Libya.
The most vocal critics were Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Utah governor Jon Huntsman Jr.
Bachmann has yet to comment on the developments in Libya. Huntsman issued a statement that did not make mention of his earlier stance on U.S. intervention but that said he was “hopeful -- as the whole world should be -- that [Gaddafi’s] defeat is a step toward openness, democracy and human rights for a people who greatly deserve it.”
