Attack in Libya

An attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that left the U.S. ambassador to Libya, John Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans dead, put Libya back in the news. The attacks — apparently prompted by outrage over an amateur, anti-Muslim film made in the United States — are likely to prompt a rethinking of U.S. policy toward Libya, where the United States supported an Arab Spring revolution and was instrumental in providing financial and diplomatic support for its newly-democratic government.
