LOS ANGELES - US President Barack Obama said on Tuesday former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi missed his chance to bring democracy to his country and described his death as a message to dictators around the world.

"This is somebody who, for 40 years, has terrorized his country and supported terrorism," Obama said on NBC's "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.

"He had an opportunity during the Arab Spring to finally let loose of his grip on power and to peacefully transition into democracy.

"We gave him ample opportunity, and he wouldn't do it."
