Libya Chaos: From the fall of Gaddafi to the rise of General Haftar (E778)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to the UK’s former ambassador to Libya, Peter Millett, about the rise of General Khalifa Haftar, why he has allies in the international community, why his brute military force is not the answer to Libya’s crisis, allegations of UK backing of Islamist and jihadist groups in Libya, and more. Next, we speak to Muammar Gaddafi’s former health minister and former minister of foreign affairs, Dr Mustafa El Zaidi, about why General Haftar has popular appeal in Libya, why the UN-backed government in Tripoli is doomed to fall, the government’s use of militias, the his accusations of the West being set out to destroy Libya from the start, not just to remove Gaddafi, and more!
