Newstalgia Reference Room with Libya and The Strange Case of Edwin Wilson. Former CIA operative and arms exporter who ran afoul of the CIA is exposed as a recruiter of mercenaries for the Gaddafi regime in 1981. Fascinating stuff, considering how much the regime has relied on mercenaries of late to do the dirty work in the streets of Tripoli. Just sayin'.
