Libya’s Weapons Problem

Libya’s ambassador to the United Nations, Ibrahim Dabbashi, finds himself in the middle of a diplomatic pickle, and not for the first time.

Dabbashi won a degree of fame in early 2011 when, as deputy ambassador, he publicly turned against Muammar el-Qaddafi and urged world leaders to intervene in his country. With tacit support from Western countries, which were inspired by a popular Libyan uprising, Dabbashi convened a U.N. Security Council session in which he passionately decried the situation on the ground; said that Qaddafi, Libya’s long-ruling tyrant, must stand trial; and called for military action to force him from power.
