Libya

    “Crises left to fester sometimes find their own way to the front burner.” Written on January 5, 2015, this sentence reflected my fear that starving Libya of high-profile international attention was increasingly risky. The beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya by Islamic State (ISIS) extremists this week appears to have placed the situation in Libya front and center. An opportunity might emerge from this horror: Western governments appear sufficiently energized to place greater heft behind the UN effort to nudge Libya’s two rival governments toward cooperation.
