The Conflict in Libya
"Testimony was proposed to be submitted for the record" to House Members of Subcommittee: Middle East, North Africa, and International Terrorism
Excerpts from the "proposed testimony"..
Eight years after the fall of the Qaddafi regime it has become vividly clear; the Libyan people in the current atmosphere of instability are unable to establish a functioning state. The United Nations sponsored Government of National Accord established in December 17th, 2015 never met any of its minimum mandated objectives of disarming militias, integrating members of militia groups into society, creating a democratic process for the eventual ratification of a viable constitution, and establishing police and security forces.

Letter of Intervention by Turbi
Excerpts from Turbi's letter..
It is truly a conflict between GOOD and EVIL. Do we want to support the tactical and strategic timely move by the Libyan National Army to restore law and order in the whole country of Libya, and eliminate radical terrorists or do we want to support those who were responsible for the brutal killing of our Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi September 12th, 2012?
Honorable William Barr, and Honorable Christopher Wray, I believe in order for our foreign policy to succeed with Libya and the region, we must pursue one that is truly based on enlightened self-interest. We must take the lead and work with the United Nations Security Council in the manner recommended in my attached testimony. Click for full text

Current Libya crisis
"It has become abundantly clear, three years after the fall of the Qaddafi regime; the Libyan people have not been able to establish viable democratic institutions, and a functioning state. The crisis at present has reached alarming levels and threatens the peace and security, not only of Libya but also of North Africa, the Sahel countries and the Mediterranean. The prospects of an intractable crisis are looming, and Libya is on the brink of becoming a failed state at the center of a critical region of the World." June 25, 2014 ......
