This is a very long investigative reporting article that is too long to 
post to the list. I recommend reading it less as an attempt to answer 
the Republican claims about negligence in Benghazi as it was intended 
and more for its coverage of the various strands of political Islam in 
Libya that will be familiar to those following Syria closely. I 
sometimes wonder if one of the greatest disasters bequeathed by 
Stalinism was its speaking on behalf of socialism in the Middle East and 
North Africa. With people like Saddam maintaining a library of Stalin's 
writings, no wonder young and angry men on the margins of society 
preferred the Quran.
