More than two years after Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown, chaos reigns in Libya.

The United States has so little trust in the Libyan government that it recently launched a Delta Force raid to apprehend Abu Anas al Libi, an accused al-Qaeda operative who was living openly in Tripoli.

We examine the Delta Force raid and how it may have undermined the Libyan government, which is already struggling to gain control and authority over its country. We also examine human rights abuses committed by the very militias supported by NATO's intervention.

In post-revolutionary Libya, Fault Lines finds a nation unravelling.

"We came from the mosque, not for a fight. We came for peace, not for war. To ask them peacefully - leave Tripoli alone."

- A Libyan resident told Al Jazeera.
