Libya in Anarchy Two Years after NATO Humanitarian Liberation

In 2011 when Muhammar Qaddafi refused to leave quietly as ruler of Libya, the Obama Administration, hiding behind the skirts of the French, launched a ferocious bombing campaign and a "No Fly" zone over the country to aid the so-called fighters for democracy.

The US lied to Russia and China with help of the (US-friendly) Gulf Cooperation Council about the Security Council Resolution on Libya and used it to illegally justify the war. The doctrine, "responsibility to protect" was used instead, the same doctrine Obama wants to use in Syria. It's useful top look at Libya two years after the NATO humanitarian intervention.
