If you just listened to the political conversation in the United States, you'd be hard-pressed to know where or what Benghazi is. In the U.S., Benghazi is not a picturesque port on the Mediterranean with a rich, fascinating history. It's not, more importantly, Libya's second city and a site of deadly political battles. Instead, it's an arena attached to Washington where the Beltway's pugilists strut and fume. My colleagues over at the Fix made that point yesterday, at least implicitly, when they declared that "Bowe Bergdahl is the new Benghazi." But the war over Benghazi remains hottest in Benghazi itself.
