DAMMAM, Saudi Arabia --The first time I visited Benghazi was in the summer of 2011, five months into the revolution. I was exploring the city and recalling the many stories my father told me about his home as I was growing up. None of his recollections could have prepared me for what I found -- a resilient city bursting with newfound energy. This is the Benghazi I remember. Three months later, Gaddafi was seized and killed by rebel forces, and the National Transitional Council declared Libya free.

Let's Not Make the Same Iraq Mistakes in Libya

John Kiriakou

Muammar Gaddafi's 42-year dictatorship is hanging by a thread, most of his family is either under arrest or in exile, and rebels are celebrating their impending victory in virtually every village, town and Tripoli neighborhood. It's like Iraq in March 2003. But things in Iraq changed quickly. We know from that experience that now isn't the time for celebration. If the Libyan people don't learn from the mistakes the U.S. made in Iraq, they could repeat the violence that has wracked that country for the past eight years. In short, it's a time to worry about Libya's future.
