A Conversation with Libyan National Council Representative Ali Aujali

The US military involvement in Libya, hailed by some as a victory for human rights and democracy, raises difficult questions about American interests and Arab popular uprisings. Many policymakers and private citizens are uncertain about the mission and hesitate to support an opposition movement whose nature and aims are unclear. Who exactly is the Libyan opposition, and what are its goals? Can it prevail, or is our involvement leading to a bloody and protracted civil war? Does the opposition have ties to al Qaeda? How can we be certain we are supporting a real democratic movement? AEI visiting scholar Paul Wolfowitz discusses these and other questions with former Libyan ambassador Ali Aujali, the current representative of Libya's Transitional National Council.
