JERUSALEM — The last person who would have been surprised by a headline like “Libya Thwarts Arrests in Benghazi Attack” was Chris Stevens, the knowledgeable, intelligent diplomat who, as US Ambassador, was killed in the Sep. 11, 2012 attack the headline references.
I can just imagine Chris' toothy grin. That was often his reaction when another Middle Eastern puzzle was being hotly tossed around. Usually he knew more than anyone else at the table, and usually, he kept his own counsel.
