Moammar Gadhafi should face “personal responsibility for his brutal atrocities,” Thomas and Margaret Melady write in today’s Washington Times.
“The Obama administration and European leaders are considering various options of geopolitical and military action to end the Gadhafi nightmare,” say the husband and wife co-authors of "Idi Amin: Hitler in Africa" (1977). “These are all appropriate state actions, but they do not address the fact that another state leader may escape personal responsibility for his brutal atrocities.”
Thomas Melady, an occasional NCR contributor, served as US ambassador to Uganda in the early 1970s and as George H.W. Bush’s ambassador to the Vatican.
