    Garfinkle makes the point that “it was the opposition . . . that started this fight,” which reminds me of another piece that came out at the time.

    As for the Obama administration’s cluelessness about the tribal nature of Libyan society, recall that when the Brits got involved in those of the parts of world they developed the discipline of social anthropology. After ten years in Iraq and Afghanistan you would think the U.S. would be wiser by now.
