Libya: The Nuclear Disaster That Wasn’t

Posted by K.E. White on March 5, 2011

First there’s David E. Sanger’s piece on the Libyan nuclear threat that never was:

“Imagine the possible nightmare if we had failed to remove the Libyan nuclear weapons program and their longer-range missile force,” said Robert Joseph, who played a central role in organizing the effort, in the months just after the invasion of Iraq.

And Joe Cirincione provides some helpful (and readable) wonkish background on the 2003 deal where Libya committed to ending their weapon’s program.
