Joshua Keating: Gadhafi’s paranoia helped create Libya’s current chaos

Libya appears to be at risk of sliding back into civil war, with some of the worst violence seen since the overthrow of Moammar Gadhafi. Armed men loyal to retired Gen. Khalifa Haftar stormed the country’s parliament in Tripoli on Sunday, and intense fighting took place in Benghazi over the weekend. Haftar’s militia fought Islamist groups, including Ansar al-Sharia, which is blamed for the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
