We don’t know the contours of it yet, but it looks like NATO will provide a unified command structure for future Libya operations and an ad hoc council of allied foreign ministers will provide ‘political guidance.’
Turkey’s primary concern with the Libya intervention — and the reason it withheld support for a NATO command — is to ensure that it stop short of effecting the removal of the Qaddafi regime. Since the Turkish FM says all their demands have been met, it seems safe to say that the Obama administration was not just being cute when it said Qaddafi wasn’t a target. Or if they were leaving that on the table as an explicit strategic goal of intervention, they’d appear to be pretty thoroughly handcuffed now.
I can’t decide whether this is an argument against letting Turkey into NATO or an argument against dragging NATO into things like this. Take your pick.
UPDATE: Or not. As soon as I hit publish I saw this from CNN:
BREAKING-NATO sources telling our Paula Newton and that #Libya agreement could be in jeapardy after last minute Turkish objections
The Turkish objection, according to the Turks themselves, is that France “wants [to] retain autonomous command” outside of NATO in order to continue strikes, and that this undermines NATO command and control. Which yeah, of course it would. It would make NATO command and control redundant.
