You can tell that Libya is a top priority 0f the Obama administration because they are not spending this week patting themselves on the back for passing a strongly worded resolution. Rather, the Obama administration is doing the hard and often overlooked work of making sure the resolution is effectively enforced.
An incendiary political mystery which began in the Lebanese Civil War may be revealed during this month's transformation of Libya. Many in Lebanon are aiming to find out what happened to Lebanese Shiite rebel leader Musa al-Sadr when he went missing in Libya in 1978.
I have just obtained the copy of a draft resolution from the Human Rights Council that strongly condemns the violence in Libya. What is more significant than the substance of the resolution is the broad degree of support it has received.
There are four main options for the security council. 1) Pass a resolution of some sort. 2) Issue a "presidential statement." 3) Issue a "Press statement" 4) Do nothing. Both 1 and 4 are not very likely.
