Abstract:

The public debate that surrounded the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO-led operation in Libya gave an impression of an Alliance in trouble. There is, however, a good story to tell. The United States, as the host of the May 2012 NATO Summit in Chicago, may wish to present the case for a new type of operation and call for a strategy review on Libya in order to develop a balanced approach to Allies possible contributions to stability in North Africa and the Gulf region.
