Topic: How Christopher Stevens’ death will impact Libya
“The murder of a US ambassador is a shocking event, so rare that the last time it happened the Russians were in Afghanistan. The Libyan government has made all the right overtures in response to violence that was instigated by a shallow YouTube video by a self-described American-Israeli who calls Islam a ‘cancer.’ But the larger implications of the killing of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans won’t be felt in Libya. They will be felt in Syria.”
Kayyem also wrote “Never Say ‘Never Again’” for Foreign Policy on September 11, 2012.
