The Hidden History of the Libyan Revolution

Thursday, November 08, 2012

Ethan Chorin, longtime Middle East scholar and one of the first American diplomats posted to Libya after the lifting of international sanctions, discusses the Libyan uprising. His book Exit the Colonel: The Hidden History of the Libyan Revolution is based upon extensive interviews with senior US, EU, and Libyan officials, and with rebels and loyalists; a deep reading of local and international media; and significant on-the-ground experience pre- and post-revolution.

Can you please ask Ethan why the Colonel was never promoted to General?
