US Considers increasing Libya Presence

By John Lee.

The United States is reported to be considering a significant expansion of its involvement in Libya.

CNN says a new diplomatic and military policy could be finalized by the Trump administration in the next few weeks, which could lead to the eventual re-opening of the US embassy and the establishing of a new intelligence sharing effort.

One official told the news agency that the new policy calls for closer cooperation and intelligence sharing with Kalifa Haftar [Hiftar], head of the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA).

    This is excellent news. The Libyan people have suffered enough! As an American that has worked in Libya, I can attest that Libyans are some of the nicest, kindest, most generous people on earth. Maybe this is the chance to right the wrongs that have perpetrated on the Libyan people!
