Jeremy Scahill: Libya Could Be Unstable for a Long Time

Following the liberation of Libya from the reign of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi, how does the future look for the country, and how does the fall of Qaddafi reflect on President Obama’s foreign policy in the region? On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Jeremy Scahill argues that those who’ve criticized the president for not acting quickly or strongly enough in Libya are mistaken.

“He’s sort of implementing the Bush Domino agenda in the Middle East,” Scahill said. “We’ve got six, seven wars going at the same time, so that criticism is ill-founded. If anything, I think we should be questioning if this is the sort of policy the US wants to move forward with—forced regime change.”
