Re: Serious problems for Libyan rebels
The latest report:

(Source Comment: Private individuals in Europe, with ties to the leadership of the National Libyan Council
(NLC), plan to urge the NLC military committee tQ,consider hiring private troops (mercenaries) to support,
organize, and train the rebel forces in Libya. These individuals believe that NA TO and the Western allies will
not ma~e a decision to aid the rebels until they are faced with a humanitarian disaster, and that the revolution is
in danger. At the same time, these individuals believe a small number of private troops could tum the battle
against Qaddafi's forces, particularly if they are equipped with sophisticated anti-aircraft weapons. Thc:;se
individuals also believe that experienced troops will have little trouble shooting down Libyan aircraft and attack
helicopters: In the opinion of these sources, this would have a devastating psychological affect on Qaddafi's
troops.)

During the afternoon of March 8, individuals with access to Sa if al Islam Qaddafi stated in confidence that
Muammar al Qaddafi is increasingly confident that his troops can drive back rebel forces attempting to advance
on Tripoli from Benghazi. According to these individuals, Qaddafi continues to believe that, if he and his

supporters can hold on to power for the next two weeks, the morale of the rebel forces will begin to falter, while
the opposition NLC, and the tribal leaders will begin to fight among themselves.
Knowledgeable individuals with access to the European security community state that they believe reports that
Qaddafi may be preparing to flee the country are false. That said, they add that, in their opinion, the NA TO
surveillance of Libya will be able to tell if and when Qaddafi does prepare to leave. They add that to date there
appears to be no activity indicating that such a move is about to take place.
(Source Comment: According to knowledgeable individuals, military commanders loyal to Qaddafi, including
his son Kham is, are surprised that NATO and the other Western military organizations have not taken a more
direct hand in the fighting . They continue to b~ concerned over this possibility, particularly in the wake of the
capture of Dutch Marines west of Tripoli, and reports of British Special Forces troops being detained by rebel
forces near Benghazi, while attempting to contact the NLC. That said, these military commanders still believe
that NATO, and particularly the United States are using satellite imagery and other sophisticated surveillance
devices to monitor the military situation in Libya. They have warned Qaddafi, that although the Western
powers appear to be reluctant to enter the fighting, this surveillance can identify anti-aircraft facilities and other
sensitive targets, and allows NATO commanders to move quickly if they decide to implement a no fly zone
over Libya, or become more directly involved in aiding the rebels. Qaddafi remains confident that NA TO and
the Western allies will continue to debate a course of action for the immediate future. He also assured his
commanders that neither the Arab League nor the Organization of African Unity (OAU) would participate in, or
support any attack on Libya. Finally, according to these sources, Qaddafi believes that Russia and China will
not support any action that involves increasing the military role the United States or NATO.)

In Bengha2i, individuals with access to the NLC state in confidence that despite the best efforts of the NLC, a
unified governing body has yet to emerge. At present, NLC leader Mustafa Abdel Gali! is experiencing limited
success in his efforts attract members of the academic and student movements to the NLC. Gali I is from the
town of Albeida, northeast of Benghazi !ind has family and traditional ties to many academic and civic leaders
in the region. The leaders of the el -Senussi family continues to assert that they should be the basis

for an interim government. Galil and his supporters reject this, and only one member of the elSenussi has been allowed to work with the NLC. (Source Comment: This individual was
imprisoned by Qaddafi for many years and is respected by all sides.).
PORTS:
Individuals with access to the military committee of the NLC stated in confidence that as of March 8 the major
Libyan oil ports of Ras Lanuf and Brega in the eastern part of the country are closed. The Libyan army fought
rebels for control of Ras Lanuf on March 7 and a rebel official reported that a captured Libyan Army officer
stated that Qaddafi would attack oil fields if he believes that the rebels were winning the conflict.
On Saturday, March S a Turkish owned vessel left Ras Lanuf with over 500,000 barrels of crude oil. Sources
with access to the NLC stated that this was the last cargo vessel to sail from that port. (Source Comment: These
individuals said that on March 7 the NLC received word that the port of Tobruk was operational. Various
sources reported on March 7 that the general cargo ports of Tripoli, Benghazi and Khoms were operational.)
The NLC sources add that many of the oil ports appear to be closed, and too dangerous to use. During the week
of February 28 London's marine insurance market added Libya to a list of areas deemed high risk.

Re: Qaddafi's coming tricks and fears; Galil's strategy
Latest report:
As of March 10, 2011 individuals with access to officials of the government ofMuammar Qaddafi stated in
confidence that, several of his advisors, including Minister of Foreign Affairs Mousa Kousa, have discussed the
idea of proposing a ceasefire to the National Libyan Council (NLC), followed by negotiations to form a new
government led by a council of technocrats. Under this plan Qaddafi would stay in power as the head of state
and national leader, and the day to day management of the country would be given over to the
technocrats. According to these individuals Qaddafi does not believe the NLC or its leader Mustafa al Gal ii
wil I accept this offer, but feels that it enhances his position as head of state in the eye of the worid, making it
less likely that NATO or some combination of foreign powers will come to the aid of the rebels.
Mousa Kousa is concerned that while the Western powers remain reluctant to commit to military action in
Libya, they appear to be moving toward a series of political and economic gestures which may weaken the
government. He was particularly concerned by the French government announcing it was recognizing the NLC
as the legitimate government ofLi.bya.

in nature, and that the Libyan military will continue to obtain new equipment and replacement parts for its
existing Russian material, even if comes via an indirect route. Qaddafi repeatedly states that he has survived
numerous assassination attempts, an attack by the United States Air Force and tribal uprisings. He is now
increasingly confident that he will survive this crisis.)
On March 10 the rebels continued to move back slowly from the town of Ras Lanufunder fire from the Libyan
Air Force, and the 155 mm motorized guns of the Libyan Army. Galil has expressed concern to the Military
Committee of the NLC regarding unsuccessful efforts to organize the opposition troops into an effective
fighting force. Galil also said to other members of the NLC that he fears the United States and the other NA TO
countries are reluctant provide arms to the rebels, because they fear that these weapons will fall into the hands
of al Qai'da and other radical Islamist groups.
Galil is convinced that one of his most important tasks is to convince these Western governments that the rebels
are not supported by al Qai'da, as Qaddafi regularly claims. (Source Comment: To date Gali! has had only
limited success in this regard. He also stated that sources in Washington have informed him that certain
officials of the United States Government want to adopt a policy urging the Government of Saudi Arabia to
fund rebel efforts to purchase better weapons. However, as of this time the proposal has not received high level
support.).
In fighting on March 10, forces loyal to Qaddafi advanced into the outskirts of Ras Lanuf. The Libyan Army
forces moved two T-72 tanks toward the oil town and are firing on rebel positions throughout the day.
Eyewitnesses reported that the rebels are pulling out of the city under the ongoing artillery bombardment.
Similarly, military airstrikes targeted the oil town ofBrega, located 56 mi/90 km east of Ras Lanuf.

The Qaddafi regime has begun a crackdown on international media in the country. According to knowledgeable
individuals, journalists from the BBC were detained and tortured by regime officials earlier in the week. BBC
staff members were arrested just outside of the embattled city of Zawiyah, located 30 mi/50 km west of Tripoli.
The BBC journalists received permission from the government to operate in the country. At the same time, a
reporter from Britain's press outlet The Guardian is missing in the country. The Guardian correspondent and a
Brazilian newspaper journalist disappeared on the outskirts of the city of Zawiyah. Guardian officials are
reportedly in touch with Libyan authorities in an attempt to ascertain whether the men have been
detained. (Source Comment: During the evening of March 10 Libyan Anny forces advanced into Zawiyah, as
the rebels withdrew.)
On March 9 advisors to Saif al Islam Qaddafi stated in confidence that his father had dispatched senior officials
to Lisbon, Brussels, Cairo, and Vienna, carrying the message that Qaddafi is willing to negotiate the surrender
of rebel forces, insuring their safety if they lay down their arms. Qaddafi believes that Mustafa Galil and other
former members of his government who joined the rebels must be prosecuted for treason, but he is prepared to
pardon the bulk of the rebels. In the opinion of these sources Qaddafi is asking these governments of the
European Union and Egypt to weigh in with the rebels and influence them to receive Qaddafi's representatives
to discuss an end to the fighting.
In Egypt, Qaddafi's representative, Maj. Gen. Abdul-Rahman al-Zawi, received a cool reception from
representatives of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), who reminded al-Zawi of the incident in
1991 when ten members of the rebel Libyan National Army (LNA), under Colonel Khalifa Haftar, accepted
Qaddafi's offer of amnesty if they returned to Libya from their base in the Congo. Upon their return these LNA
fighters were arrested put on trial for treason and executed. (Source Comment: Al-Zawi asked to discuss these
matters further after he had talked to Tripoli.)

According to these knowledgeable sources, forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi closed in on rebel
forces in locations in both the eastern and western parts of the country on 9 March 2011. In Zawiyah, located

approximately 30 mi/50 km west of Tripoli, government forces surrounded rebels in the central city square.
Eyewitnesses have reported seeing snipers and tanks surrounding the fighters and stated that clashes are
ongoing. Government forces also drew closer to the rebel-held port city of Ras Lanuf in the eastern portion of
the country on March 9. Rebel and government forces clashed just outside of the city, approximately 12 mi/20
km from the city center. Government forces also launched rockets at strategic areas of Ras Lanuf during the
overnight hours of 8-9 March. SeveralI injuries have been reported over the last 24 hours.
Conditions in Tripoli have been calm in recent days. Tensions remain significantly elevated, but government
orders and edicts have instilled an almost forced normality to day-to-day operations in the city. Traffic and
transport is normal, and shops and businesses are open; however, business operations have become increasingly
difficult due to stifled economic activity, rising prices and an increasing scarcity of goods. Internet services and
telecommunications, including text and most mobile phone services, have been suspended in the country for
nearly a week, creating fiirther business operation problems for workers and companies in the capital.
Government surveillance has increased, and security and pro-Qaddafi militia patrols are prominent throughout
the city.

Subject: to empower women, we have to find better ways to validate men

I thought you might like this - although i don,t chink it necessarily applies in DC, where men still
seem to me to be plenty empowered. On a completely different subject, nb the following point
from Christopher Dickey this morning, which echoes your speeches - "If we Westerners are
worried about popular sentiment in the Arab world, which would be something novel for us, then
the opinion we need to satisfy should be that of the young people in the streets who have risen
against their dictators. They represent, after all, some two-thirds of the region's population." I think
we should be making every effort to find out what leaders of the April 6 movement in Egypt, the
Tunisian protesters; the Bahrainis etc. think re a NFZ or other military action in Libya. AM

International Men's Day


lfwe are going to empower women and girls around the world, we have to find new and better roles for men.
Last week I led a State Department-sponsored delegation of women tech leaders to Liberia and Sierra Leone to
meet with government officials, entrepreneurs, activists, telecommunication and banking executives, and
university administrators to explore ways that technology, particularly mobile technology, can help improve the
health, education, and livelihoods of women and girls in both countries. Women are doing amazing things in
both countries, from President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in Liberia to First Lady Sia Koroma in Sierra Leone to
countless local women and women returning from the diaspora that fled during horrific civil wars in both
countries. But as a successful businesswoman was telling me that "women do all the farming" in Sierra Leone,
as well as most of the market trading, and as I watched the groups ofunemployed young men on every street
comer, I kept wondering what men were supposed to be doing. It finally dawned on me that farming was
women's work because it was domestic work -- tending family crops. Men were the hunters and the warriors,
essential providers of protein and protection. Yet neither of those roles exist today, beyond the option of serving
in small national military forces.
When I used to teach civil procedure as a law professor, I would begin the year by telling my students that "civil
procedure is the etiquette ofritualized battle." The phrase, which did not originate with me, captured the point

that peaceful, developed societies resolve disputes by Jaw rather than by force. Litigation thus becomes
"ritualized battle." It is not hard to imagine many litigators as modem warriors, just as it is not hard to imagine
many investment bankers as competitive hunters -- of deals rather than game. But in societies that have just
recently emerged from actual battle, where men fought each other and raped and captured women and that have
only rudimentry legal and finance professions, what's the professional alternative to hunting and fighting?
The point of these admittedly loose sociological musings is that women's roles have expanded while men's have
contracted. Over my lifetime, women have demonstrated repeatedly that they can do anything that men can do,
while still managing traditional women's work at the same time. But the same expansion of roles has not been
available to men. Yes, men can do housework and take care of children -- my husband proves that every day,
and I love him for it. But those roles are not celebrated in our society, even though they should be, which is one
reason so many women have wanted more. So what is it that men are distinctively good at? Legal Analyst Dan
Abrams has just written a book called Man Down: Proof Beyond a Reasonable Doubt That Women Are Better
Cops, Drivers, Gamblers, Spies, World Leaders, Beer Tasters, Hedge Fund Managers, and Just About
Everything Else. The book is based on over I 00 gender-based studies. It is wonderfully timed for International
Women's Day and ideal talk show fodder. But the implications are actually quite serious -- not only in terms of
increasing the number of women in these professions, but also in terms of asking ourselves how we can better
value and validate men.
I ask these questions every day as the mother of two sons, aged 12 and 14. Two sons who matter-of-factly say,
as though it is indeed an unquestioned matter of fact, that "girls are smarter than boys" and thus do better in
school. They are of course trying to curry favor with their feminist mother while explaining why their own
grades aren't higher, but at a time when many colleges are starting to put a thumb on the scale for male
applicants to ensure a roughly balanced class, I worry that they really believe it. As much as I want them to treat
their wives as equals and value all that women can do and be, I also want them to value themselves.
Because in the end girls are not smarter than boys, any more than boys are smarter than girls. A healthy society
has to honor and respect women and men. We know that rising unemployment correlates with rising domestic
violence; frustrated, unhappy men who cannot control their lives all too often exercise violent control over their
wives. Women should not validate men in ways that diminish themselves, such as cooing over a strong
protector in a way that reinforces the idea of the weaker sex. But we must take to heart the idea that women's
equality does not in fact mean women's superiority. It means what it says: equality. So our task for International
Women's Day is to figure out, at least in part, how we can celebrate men.

Re: Syria aiding Qaddafi

This memo has two parts. Part.one is the report that Syria is providing air support for Qaddafi. Part two is a note
to Cody from Lord David Owen, former UK foreign secretary on his views of an increasingly compl~x crisis. It
. seems that the situation is developing into a protracted civil war with various nations backing opposing sides
with unforeseen consequences. Under these circumstances the crucial challenge is to deprive Qaddafi of his
strategic depth-his support both financial and military.

.
During the afternoon of March 3, advisers to Muammar Qaddafi stated privately that the Libyan
Leader has decided that civil war is

~nevitable,

pitting troops and mercenary troops loyal to him

against the rebel forces gathering around Benghazi. Qaddafi is convinced that these rebels are
being supported by the United States, Western Europe and lsraeJ: On March 2 Qaddafi told his
son Saif al-Islam that he believes the intelligence services of the United States, Great Britain,

Egypt, and France have deployed paramilitary officers to Benghazi to assist in organizing,
training, and equipping opposition forces. Qaddafi is convinced that the National Libyan
Council (NLC), and its leader, former Minister of Justice Mustafa Mohamed Abdel Galil have
been chosen by the foreign powers to

replac~

him. On March 1 advisors to Qaddafi stated that

Qaddafi's cousin, Col. Ali Qaddafiddam had failed in efforts to recruit fighters among the
Egyptian population living immediately across the border with Libya.
These individuals added that during the week of February 21 the Libyan Leader spoke to Syrian
President Bashir al-Assad on at least three occasions by secure telephone lines. Dm-ing the
conversations Qaddafi asked that Syrian officers and technicians currently training the Libyan
Air Force be placed under command of the Libyan Army and allowed to fight against the rebel
forces.
(Source Comment: Senior Libyan Army officers sti11 loyal to Qaddafi added that On February
23, President Assad told General Isam Hallaq, the commander in chief of the Syrian Air Force,
to instruct the pilots and technicians in Tripoli to help the Libyan regime, should full scale Civil
War breaks out in the immediate future.)
On March 2, a military officer with ties to Qaddfi's son Khamis stated privately that the
number of Libyan pilots defecting to the opposition has destroyed the morale and professional
spirit of the Libyan Air Force at this critical moment, when Tripoli's air superiority is its
principal weapon against insurgents. In the opinion of this individual Qaddafi and his senior
military advisors are convinced that the European Union and the U.S will impose a no-fly zone
over Libya in the immediate future. These advisors believe that the no fly zone will serve as air
suppmt for opposition forces. They are also prepared for the Western allies to bomb antiaircraft facilities in and around Tripoli in preparation for the establishment of the no-fly zone.
Foreign Minister Mousa Kousa is convinced that that Russia and Turkey wi11 oppose the move,
and may prevent the implementation of the no fly zone.
The Syrian soldiers in Libya are part of a mission established in 1984 following the signing of a
military agreement between Qaddafi and Syria's long-time ruler and Bashir's father, Hafez al2

ng and strafing but keeping it up front and on the military agenda keeps him worried. Yet for a few frustrating
months that ambivalence kept the Serbian aeroplanes on the ground before we acted. My hope is that
preparations continue with visuals of planes flying off carriers, airborne early warning planes flying and people
with clout outside the Administration demanding preparations. But and it is a big BUT what else can and should
we be doing? Encourage humanitarian ships and convoys from Egypt to bring in supplies since we must ensure
the cities in the East can hold up living standards, maybe for months. More adventurous, Egyptian Special
Forces to go in and advise, even supplying hand held missiles. It appears they have few missiles; the military in
the East having been deliberately kept ill-equipped. There is old Nasserite sentiment for a Federation of Egypt,
Sudan and Libya. I know some will say Egypt has enough problems and they should stay resolutely focused on
domestic reforms. it is delicate but words alone and the balance of advantage will slip to Gaddafi. A Gaddafi
victory is possible and needs to be weighed in the balance now when deciding what to do.
I'm more worried than I am ready to say publicly.

formations moving south were hit from the air. They are marching on Tripoli with difficulty,
and are also under armed.
Sabrath and Zawiah witnessed a major battle free army+ people vs. regime's forces. The
regime lost and was not able to recapture Zawiah as planned. They retreated. Free army was
too exhusted to make a counter attack last night.
.
Misrata is completely in the hands of the free, and already made civil government
arrangements. However, they were given an ultimatum last evening, and threatened with
bombings. Families took shelter in the count,..Y side.
Tajoura youth are trying to stop Mtiqa airport from functioning but are coming under very
heavy attach by regime forces.
Clearly, the air superiority is giving the regime a huge advantage.
In Tripoli itself roaming mercenaries/thugs are terrorizing people so the do not come out to
the streets to demonstrate.
Also, major propaganda campaign that denies the massive atrocities caused by the air raids.
Bodies and even the wounded are being removed to unknown locations from the hospitals.
The streets were cleaned and bloodstains painted over. A 'tour' for diplomats was being
arranged!
The international community MUST take action NOW. The easiest is the no-fly zone. Also
unmanned aircraft attack on Bab al-Aziziah ar:id the units blocking the way to Tripoli from the
West would be most helpful.
In light of the lack of international physical action, youth are now working hard on the
attached Plan which has been communicated to them.
That is it for now.

Salams. Here is a message that summarizes situation in Tripoli:

In light of the speech, and threat of more mercenaries, and loose thugs, the tribes are
converging on Tripoli from East, South. West still blocked, may collapse soon. My Wirfallah has
been moving north to Tripoli in small groups, and will complete its full presence by early
tomorrow.

WE URGENTLY NEED ELIMINATION OF AIR UPRIORTY. Please work on the non-fly zone, or
the other options I mentioned .
Oil prices are rising, markets are down. We have to be decisive.
I have called the Eastern leaders, and they are in full control of the East, and bless our efforts.
Today, they are having a demonstration of support, and have already sent some youth West to

I managed to work with the Turks on getting some medical supply in. It should be entering
Benghazi port tomorrow. We secured the port, ~nd worked out the technical logistics.
I am receiving the documentation of the local set up of the East over the next couple of days.
A committee is working on it.
Things are moving very fast.

Gaddafi nears his end, exiled Libyan prince says


Tue Feb 22, 2011 6:42pm GMT

* Crown

Prine~ Senussi expects imminent end for Gaddafi

* Urges Gaddafi's allies to end support


By Marie-Louise Gumu.chian
RABAT, Feb 22 (Reuters) - Muammar Gaddafi's violent struggle to remain in power will not last
long, said the exiled crown prince of Libya, whose family he toppled in a 1969 coup.

Prince Muhammad as-Senussi, whose father, the former crown prince, and great-uncle King
Idris were overthrown amid a series of revolts in the Arab world, said Libyans protesting
against the leader's long rule would be "victorious in the end;'.
Gaddafi said on Tuesday he would not step down despite a nationwide revolt against his rule,
vowing to die in Libya as a martyr.
"His fight to stay in power will not last long, because of the desire for freedom by the Libyan
people. This great popular revolution will be victorious in the end, because of the unity of the
Libyan people," 48-year-old Senussi sa~d in a statement from his home in London.
"The Libyan people have now chosen to challenge this regime peacefully until it is gone from
Libya, and the people will not return to their homes until justice is delivered."
After being overthrown by Gaddafi in 1969, the royal family was held under house arrest for a
period. In 1988, they emigrated to Britain.
"The Libyan people have raised their voices in Benghazi and Tripoli and all other cities across
Libya. They have made the whole world listen to them," Senussi said.
He called on the international community to help stop the violence. "I ask especially those
countries which have previously worked with the Gaddafi regime to exert pressure to stop the
bloodshed in Libya," he said. "I also ask them to halt all support for the dictator with.
immediate effect."

Subject: two more thoughts on Libya before I head to Liberia/Sierra Leone with the Women's Tech Del
The flurry of activity yesterday was great. But just two additional thoughts. First, as I wrote before, we have to see this
not just as responding to obligation or outside pressure, but as an actual opportunity to impress the young people across
the middle east whom you said at Doha are the majority of the population. If we think about this in moral terms, we will
be much more cautious, thinking about precedent and legalities. But if we think about it in strategic terms, as a chance,
in Mark Malloch Brown's terms yesterday in the FT, to "detoxify America's brand in the Middle East," then we should be
willing to contemplate bolder policy steps. Th is is a moment we can seize. Second, and relatedly, we are doing lots of
things to try to increase the pressure on Gaddafi. But that is not quite the same thing as doing things that will be actively
felt as support by the protesters in the streets. Think of how many cases there are where prisoners, oppressed
minorities, women etc. have told us how important a speech or affirmation of support by the U.S. is. Old-fashioned
moral support can go a long way for people who are putting their lives on the line. To that end, UN resolutions and
sanctions may have less impact than public statements. Fareed Zakaria suggested on CNN yesterday that POTUS call for
Gaddafi's resignation. I would go with that and w ith a more public state!11ent that Gaddafi has forfeited his legitimacy as
a leader by violating the responsibility to protect; that we are with the protesters, that we admire their courage and
their spirit, etc. Something that can be tweeted from person to person .

All best,

BS
Purpose of Call: To urge President Jonathan to make strong public st atements in suppo rt of the international
community\s intervention in Libya on the national, regional, and Afri ca Union level and t o encourage his continued
leadership on Cote d'Ivoire.

Background: Election season in Nigeria is in full swing, with parliamentary, presidential, and gubernatorial elections
scheduled for April 2, 9, and 16, respectively. President Jonathan has been on the campaign trail most of this month.
Nigerian officials still resent Qaddafi's suggestion last year that Nigeria be divided in multiple countries in response to its
ethno-religious violence, and have been supportive of our efforts to date.

Dear Huma,
We've been working on bur piece on Oscar's exhibition at the Clinton Library and are rushing it into our
November issue to coincide with the show. Obviously it would mean a lot to us if we could include a quote
from Secretary Clinton. Is there any way you could try to make this happen? The name of the writer is Lynn
Yaeger. I include her contact information below.

Hope your travels have been less brutal than they look. I know it has been a while since we spoke of this, but I still think
it would be good for you to have an informal setting to talk to some influential new York city writers and opinionators.
So, I would propose to host a smallish dinner when your calendar permits in the coming weeks with the following people
who I know well enough to trust some level of discretion for an off the record dinner that would allow you to provide an
account of some of the highs and even some lows of policy making on Libya, china, Iran, the Arab spring and the Israel
Palestinian issue. They are: Eleanor Randolph and carol Giacomo from the New York times editorial board, Richard
Cohen of Washington post, David Remnick and Rick Hertzberg from the New Yorker, Leon Wieseltier and Frank Foer
from the New Republic, Tina Brown from Newsweek, my wife from CNN and ABC, and maybe one or two others like Tom
Brokaw.
The point is not to create news stories, but to ensure when these people deliver their inevitable assessments of your
term as Secretary they have an appreciation of some of the difficulties and complexities .
All best, Jamie
