    Ambassador Stevens was in the relatively safe Tripoli the day prior to the attack(s) in Benghazi.

    He was not ordered into harms way.

    The person most responsible for placing four Americans into harms way the Ambassador himself.

    He placed himself and others into harms way because he was a CIA operative and had a mission far and above issuing travel visas to the U.S.

    All of these fine Americans were heroes.

    People making political hay from their deaths are ghouls who are dishonoring the service of four dead Americans.

      It’s the Supreme Court, stupid! Followed by: It's always the Supreme Court! Progressives will win only when we convince a majority that they, too, are Progressive.

      at, but Stevens himself surely is on that list.  What did the CIA (right around the corner) know and when did they know it?  Stevens knew of the strong possibility of an imminent attack the day before the attack (as FromRed points out).  Did he run that up the flagpole?  Ignore it?  Regardless, he chose to be in Benghazi that day.  It appears that what "security" was there was insufficient at best.
      So many to point fingers at suggests to some that there is a coverup in play.  And maybe there is!  Who is covering up for whom?  Or what?  Or, it just could be that this was a clusterf*ck of mega proportions.  The keystone cops just couldn't get out of their own way.  But, clusterf*ck or not, coverup or not, the longer this drags on the more it looks like the latter.  Exactly what Issa hoping for. [sigh]
