Turnstyle News: Libya Embassy Attack – The Tangled Web of Tragedy

Lead in text: 
It’s been difficult to be focused on anything but the slowly evolving news out of Libya today. The first thoughts through my head when I learned that a state department staffer was killed as part of a riot at the consulate in Benghazi was of Tehran in 1979. The Iranian Hostage Crisis had a huge impact on American politics. Not only was it a fateful blow to the Carter Administration, it set the stage for both the Iran-Contra scandal and tension that continues between Iran and the United States to this day. Deja vu all over again.
