Canceled: The Future of Libya With: Dr. Mahmoud Jibril, Interim PM, National Transitional Council of Libya
April 13, 2011
We regret to inform you that our event with Dr. Mahmoud Jibril this Friday has been postponed due to travel complications. We have been informed by Dr. Jibril's representatives that his flight out of Doha was canceled last night and that there were no flights available that would allow him to arrive earlier than late afternoon today, too late for his scheduled meetings on the Hill and with Administration officials. According to his representatives, Dr. Jibril plans to reschedule his visit for early May when Congress returns from recess. CSIS apologizes for any inconvenience and hopes to see you at future events. Andrew Schwartz
