Libya civil war 2011
Kuperman in an article in the Boston Globe said that the pretense for intervention in Libya may turn out to be false.
Qaddafi [never] threaten civilian massacre in Benghazi, as Obama alleged. The “no mercy’’ warning, of March 17, targeted rebels only, as reported by The New York Times, which noted that Libya’s leader promised amnesty for those “who throw their weapons away.’’ Qaddafi even offered the rebels an escape route and open border to Egypt, to avoid a fight “to the bitter end.’’
