Ex-senior commander of British military in Libya challenged on regime change war against Gaddafi (E1111)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to the former senior commander of the British military in Libya (2011-12), Rupert Wieloch, author of ‘Liberating Libya: British Diplomacy and War in the Desert’. He discusses the history of Libya from ancient times to 2022, the creation of a post-colonial Libya and the rule of Muammar Gaddafi’s predecessor, King Idris, and the reasons for the success of Gaddafi’s revolution, the rise of jihadism after the fall of Gaddafi, and more. He is also challenged on Britain’s involvement in the war and on the record of Gaddafi, both domestically and internationally.
