The protests started in Cairo over an internet video. Soon there-after a similar protest began in Libya. It is not un-common for one protest in the mid-east at an American Embassy to lead to another in a neighboring country (remember the events of the Arab Spring?). That plus the fact that the government in Egypt wasn’t doing much to protect the Embassy (it is after all the host country that is required by treaty – that way an Embassy doesn’t have standing troops….). The Interim government in Libya however was on good terms with the US, Amb. Stevens was popular with them. Libya even sent forces in to protect the embassy, unlike Egypt. Are any of youstarting to follow? At the time attention would have been focused on Cairo, not Bengahzi.
