A member of Britain’s royal family was planning to attend a commemoration of Qaddafi’s 1969 seizure of power in a coup, four decades of absolute rule and a long period of state-sponsored terrorism? How’s that for a little glimpse of Europe’s oil-hungry, baldly amoral Libya policy. The prisoner release is a sideshow.
