Barack Obama admitted on Monday (28.09.2015), at the UN summit, that the "international community" should have done more to avoid the leadership vacuum in Libya since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi four years ago.
This rare acknowledgement of mistakes in the campaign against Libya, by US President Obama, came as the United Nations tries to negotiate an end to fighting between the two rival "governments" in Tripoli and in Benghazi and their armed "Rebels", which has pushed the country to the brink of an total collapse.
Obama in front of the United Nations General Assembly:

"Even as we "helped" the Libyan people bring an end to the "reign of a tyrant", our coalition could have and should have done more to fill a vacuum left behind," 

"We're grateful to the United Nations for its efforts to forge a unity government."

The United Nations General Assembly is not the same as the so called "Security Council". 2011 - in absence of Russia and China, the "Security Council" voted for the so called "Non-Flight-Zone". A free ticked for the US, France and Britain to bombard Libya. Killing more than 100.000 people, included many children and women. During the last more than 4 years, many more died, in this still ongoing fightings in Libya.
Shortly after, the United States then handed "operations" over to the NATO, to give their actual war on Libya the international painting. All under the pretend, to enforce a no-fly zone. Muammar Al Gaddafi was allergically killed during the turmoil...

"We will help any "legitimate" Libyan government as it works to bring the country together, but we also have to recognise that we must work more effectively in the future as an international community to build capacity for states that are in distress before they collapse," he added.

The Benghazi "Government" is the by US and Britain, France "recognised "Government", controlling some important parts of the wealth of Libya (Oil and Gas).

Tripoli is been controlled by "Libya Dawn", an alliance of former militias "Rebels" and a armed faction from the city of Misirata that set up a self-declared government and parliament in the capital. Misirata was bombarded in 2011 from the sea, by possible US / British or French rockets, which was then pointed to the Libyan Jamahiriya Armed Forces, to turn the Misirata people against Muammar Al Gaddafi.

The Misirata people have proved them-self, to be some of the most cruel people in Libya. Just as US, Britain and France needed them to be.  

The internationally "recognised government" and "elected" parliament had to flee to the east of the country, since they were driven out of Tripoli, the capital city. It is backed by a former Gaddafi ally, General Khalifa Haftar, who had been living many years in the United States...., and a quiet loose formation of other armed groups.

The deal proposed by the United Nations, calls for a "one-year united national government", with the current elected parliament as the legislature, and another chamber as a consultative body.
