Speaking on WNYC’s Brian Lehrer Show, Carnegie’s Frederic Wehrey discussed important recent developments in Libya, including the capsized boat carrying immigrants from Libya to Italy and the killing of Ethiopian Christians in Libya by the self-proclaimed Islamic State. Wehrey explained that much of the ongoing chaos in Libya is the results of failed efforts to stabilize the country after the fall of Qaddafi. While the United States and the international community has not provided enough support to Libya after Qaddafi, the political and other divisions among Libyans, as well as their lack of experience in governance, has led to the ongoing chaos, he concluded.
