If the latest quotes from the Arab League Secretary General are representative, it appears that the Arab League may have backtracked on its earlier criticism. Haaretz reported:
Arab League chief Amr Moussa said on Monday that he respected a UN resolution that authorized military action on Libya, after earlier comments suggested he was concerned by actions taken by Western powers.
"The Arab League position on Libya was decisive and from the first moment we froze membership of Libya ... Then we asked the United Nations to implement a no-fly zone," he told a news conference with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
A reversal of position is helpful. Of course, it does not change the basic facts concerning the Arab League's previously hollow gesture (a declaration not backed by actions) and baseless criticism following Western coalition efforts related to UNSC Res. 1973.
