Swails says despite Qaddafi trying to make himself over in recent years- he was a dictator and a terrorist.
"Until 2003, he was a prime mover against us in a variety of ways. After he saw Saddam Hussein emerge from his spider hole he decided maybe he should be a little nicer to the U.S.," says Swails.
But the removal of Qaddafi doesn’t ease his concerns.
"Just a big question mark- what now? Because the rebels who are in charge as of the last few weeks are very strongly connected to al-Qaeda, to the Muslim brotherhood so do we see any change in the progress of Libya," says Swails.
