U.S. intervention in Libya in 2011 continues to reap the whirlwind of tragedy as forces in opposition to the “legitimate” Government of National Accord are attacking the capital city of Tripoli.
In short, it’s a mess. A rogue general looking to take over the government is making the security situation for U.S. troops “complex and unpredictable,” according to the Marine general in command, Gen. Thomas Waldhauser.
“The security realities on the ground in Libya are growing increasingly complex and unpredictable,” Marine Corps Gen. Thomas Waldhauser, commander of U.S. Africa Command, said in a statement.
“Even with an adjustment of the force, we will continue to remain agile in support of existing U.S. strategy.”
Africom further clarified that the repositioning was in response to security concerns.
