NEWSFLASH: The U.S. has evacuated its embassy in Tripoli, Libya, because of ongoing violence, U.S. officials tell CNN's Barbara Starr.

Have you been following events in Libya closely? No, of course you haven't. Since the ouster of Muammar Qaddafi, we've scarcely discussed Libya except in the context of a predictable partisan effort to affix blame for a single if tragic event: the deaths of the American ambassador and several others in Benghazi nearly two years ago.
