Gadhafi's Death Is Not What You Think 
GadaffiWhen news of Moammar Gadhafi’s death broke, we wasted no time. Headlines and news stories adopted a self-congratulatory tone almost immediately. The New York Times declared it: “the latest victory for a new American approach to war.’ But some military scholars caution against hyping the Libyan dictator’s demise as a US “victory.” However understandable the urge, Andrew Bacevich says, it creates the false sense that decisions made in Washington make the world go ’round. Bacevich, a professor of history and international relations at Boston University, is the author of five books, most recently Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War and The Limits of Power: The End of American Exceptionalism.
