WASHINGTON: The US  President Barack Obama says his interview fox News at Sunday that  the biggest mistake of his presidency was a lack of planning for the aftermath of the fall of late Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi, with the country spiralling into chaos and grappling with violent extremists.
According to him  “probably failing to plan for the day after what I think was the right thing to do in intervening in Libya."
Since Kadhafi's death, Libya has descended into near-anarchy, ruled by rival militias vying for power while the militant Islamic State (IS) group has gained influence in the country.
Obama has repeatedly acknowledged that the United States and its allies could have done more to prevent Libya's descent into chaos following the NATO-backed uprising that led to Kadhafi's ouster and killing in 2011.

Obama also sharply criticised British Prime Minister David Cameron and former French leader Nicolas Sarkozy for their roles in the Libya campaign, saying in particular that Cameron became “distracted".
