In his final year, President Obama has been touting his accomplishments, but now, he's admitted to what he thinks is his "worst mistake."By Eugene Daniels | April 10, 2016
During their last year in the White House, presidents spend quite a bit of time publicly reflecting on their legacy, and President Obama is no exception. In a wide-ranging interview with Fox News, the president shared what he thought was his worst mistake in office.
"Probably failing to plan for the day after what I think was the right thing to do in intervening in Libya," President Obama told Fox News' Chris Wallace.
This isn't the first time the president has criticized the handling of Libya after the ousting of dictator Moammar Gadhafi in 2011. In an interview with The Atlantic, Obama said the operation was planned carefully, but the country is currently a "mess."
