Libya: Is The Country Ungovernable?
Published on 3 Oct 2012 by PressTVGlobalNews
Since the fall of Gaddafi there have been reports of deep divisions within the country as a result of western intervention.
Western governments sided with revolutionary fighters in Benghazi while ignoring the problems tribal divisions could pose to a national government.
Libyan police in Benghazi have mutinied and refuse to serve under the man appointed by the government to take over security following last week’s storming of the US consulate in which the ambassador and three other Americans were killed.
With no one clearly in charge in Libya’s second city and major oil port, the officer named by the government in Tripoli to replace both Benghazi’s police chief and the deputy interior minister responsible for the eastern region told Reuters that he had asked for the army to be sent in if he could not start work.
But as the appointee, Salah Doghman, spoke late on Tuesday, police threatened to walk out en masse if the leadership switch was forced through and accused central government in the capital of making local officials scapegoats for its own failures.
Meanwhile, a senior US intelligence official told lawmakers Wednesday that the slain US ambassador and three other Americans died “in the course of a terrorist attack.”
