A Journalist’s Account of What Happened in Libya

Journalist Lizzy Phelan on Her Experience in Libya 

Regular readers of Antiwar.com will not be surprised by Ms. Phelan’s account of what she saw in Libya. Just like the war in Iraq, the bombing of Libya was based on a whole lot of nonsense: inflated death tolls and exaggerated opposition against Gaddafi (although the opposition against him should not be marginalized). As US rhetoric towards Iran reaches a fever pitch similar to that in the run up to the war in Iraq, it’s truly worth pondering just how many times the American people will tolerate being lied to or bullied into war.
