It's fine to say the NTC was a geographical uprising, and I agree to some extent, though I wouldn't diminish the roles of Salafists, or the Libyan Fighting Group, or Ansar al-Sharia.
If Qaddafi didn't have widespread support, then he was a dictator who did have enough support to stay in power.
We decided to intervene far beyond the term of the UN resolution - we decided, and by that I mean the US itself -on regime change.
So the follow up cluter**** we left; we own it. You can't intervene to the point of taking sides in a civil war, and then just say "oh well, such is how it is"
