A Hollow Victory: The Slow Unraveling of Libya | Need to Know | PBS

Over the weekend, fighting in Sabha, in a remote southern region of Libya, killed 147. It was the latest of months-long string of horrifying stories coming out of Libya that seems to merit mostly shrugs. What is going on?Part of the reason so few seem to know about the awful things happening to Libya is because NATO’s leadership seems determined to ignore it. Last October, President Obama called the war “a recipe for future success.” U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has fulsomely praised the nascent Libyan government as making “progress.” Ivo Daalder and James Stavridis, the US Representative to NATO and the Supreme Allied Commander Europe, respectively, published an article in this month’s Foreign Affairs magazine extolling the Libyan war as a “model intervention.”
