Attack in Libya

Amabassador’s death may lead to reevalutation of U.S. policy in Mideast

by Vincent P. Bzdek

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.
