To some accounts, it seems that the USA government is paving the way for operations aimed to kill or capture militants involved in the deadly attack against the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, that resulted in the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans citizens.This event is now seen under a twofold perspective: the US role in the transition phase of newly elected governments and what kind of punishment to the perpetrators.

So far the EU has played quite a passive role, but this could change in the future. And it remains to be seen what part the U.S. will play.
