Remember the time when Libya was being held up by the American, British, French and Qatari governments as a striking example of benign and successful foreign intervention? It is worth looking again at film of David Cameron grandstanding as liberator in Benghazi in September 2011 as he applauds the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi and tells the crowd that "your city was an example to the world as you threw off a dictator and chose freedom".

Mr Cameron has not been back to Benghazi, nor is he likely to do so as warring militias reduce Libya to primal anarchy in which nobody is safe. The majority of Libyans are demonstrably worse off today than they were under Gaddafi, notwithstanding his personality cult and authoritarian rule. The slaughter is getting worse by the month and is engulfing the entire country.

"Your friends in Britain and France will stand with you as you build your democracy," pledged Mr Cameron to the people of Benghazi. Three years later, they are words he evidently wants to forget, since there was almost no reference to Libya, the one military intervention he had previously ordered, when he spoke in the House of Commons justifying British airstrikes against Islamic State (Isis) in Iraq.

The foreign media has largely ceased to cover Libya because it rightly believes it is too dangerous for journalists to go there. Yet I remember a moment in the early summer of 2011 in the frontline south of Benghazi when there were more reporters and camera crews present than there were rebel militiamen. Cameramen used to ask fellow foreign journalists to move aside when they were filming so that this did not become too apparent. In reality, Gaddafi's overthrow was very much Nato's doing, with Libyan militiamen mopping up.

Human rights organisations have had a much better record in Libya than the media since the start of the uprising in 2011. They discovered that there was no evidence for several highly publicised atrocities supposedly carried out by Gaddafi's forces that were used to fuel popular support for the air war in the US, Britain, France and elsewhere. These included the story of the mass rape of women by Gaddafi's troops that Amnesty International exposed as being without foundation. The uniformed bodies of government soldiers were described by rebel spokesmen as being men shot because they were about to defect to the opposition. Video film showed the soldiers still alive as rebel prisoners so it must have been the rebels who had executed them and put the blame on the government.

This supermodel is off the market. Kendall Jenner is “full-on dating” rapper A$AP Rocky , a source confirms to Us Weekly . “It’s the real deal,” says the insider of the pair, who first sparked rumors of a hookup when he attended her PacSun launch in NYC February 8.

Unlike with her on-off flings with L.A. Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson and former One Direction singer Harry Styles , the source adds, the supermodel, 20, is going the extra mile to see Rocky, who has been previously linked to fellow top model Chanel Iman and Iggy Azalea .

On July 24, she was spotted cheering on the “L$D” MC (born Rakim -Mayers) during his set at NYC’s Panorama Festival and met up with the music producer for a late night dinner date at Blue Ribbon Brasserie in Soho. 

Just one week later, she brought him to her sister Kylie’s 19th birthday party at the Nice Guy in West Hollywood, where they acted affectionate and snuck out the back door together.

A pal of the Estée Lauder spokeswoman says she loves that she and Rocky have the fashion world in common. “They’re both major players,” says the friend, noting the 27-year-old face of Dior Homme has collaborated with high-end designers like J.W. Anderson and Guess. The source adds: “They have lots to talk about!”

Back in June, the stylish duo were spotted having dinner together at L’ Avenue restaurant in Paris during Menswear Fashion week and ended the night dancing to Rihanna and Nicki Minaj songs at the Cartel Club.

Terrible news for the wiseacre who filled out a personal Facebook profile for crunchy, delicious Bakeshop Granola . They’re coming for you, Bakeshop Granola! (Go quietly. It’s only 25 years .) Also:  

Gosh, I wish I’d known misleading people on Facebook was a federal crime before I “liked” a photo my friend posted of her cat drinking lemonade out of a mug. I didn’t actually like that, and the “adorable” I typed into the comment box is an overstatement. (Please don’t prosecute.) And does it count as “malicious” to pointedly ignore certain friend requests from certain people for certain reasons that—let’s face it—the NSA already knows all about? Actually, whatever, I have never seen that laptop before in my life.

So if you, eHarmony user, falsely represent yourself as a natural blonde, or 10 pounds lighter, or a “connoisseur of fine art” when you secretly think All Art Looks The Same, you are in violation of federal law and have the right to remain silent—which is what you should have done in the first place, instead of posting some crap about how you speak Cantonese.

A propos: A member of the Slate staff went on a date recently with a man who professed, in his online dating profile, to be several inches taller than he was. When I told her what I was writing about, a glint of satisfaction flashed in her eye. And yet, on some level, doesn’t the Internet exist so that people can present glamorized, rosy-hued, mostly untruthful versions of themselves? Scrub the Web clean of lies and what’s left? Banality, rudeness, and far fewer urban twentysomethings on OKCupid who claim to love Gravity’s Rainbow . (OK, maybe that last one is a good thing.)

I’m comforted by the fact that the FBI has proven fairly lax so far about enforcing the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. Still, my not-too-trendy-but-just-indie-enough taste in music and I just might skip town for a while.
