US President Barack Obama, in San Salvador, is answering questions on the intervention in Libya. He said he "has absolutely no doubt" the US will be able to transfer control of the Libyan military operation to an international coalition in a matter of days.2121 The American Security Project think-tank has grave doubts about the operation in Libya. Will it work? Can it be justified? Does the no-fly zone come too late? Executive director Dr Jim Ludes writes: "The neo-cons on the right (still!) and the progressive internationalists on the left dominate foreign policy in this country. They both see the use of American military power as the key to solving all the world's problems. But it's not ever that easy and we're just too financially strapped to tolerate that deceit any longer."
