#1 The question is: Ambassador Stevens was concerned enough to journal his fears about the situation falling apart, what in the world was he doing on that day going there with no security?
We all make mistakes. That was the ambassador's last mistake.

#2 I imagine Stevens got a reminder of Animal House when he called State for help:
"You f*&ked up. You trusted us"

#3 Stevens was Obama's "point man" for Obama to funnel arms to Libya And Syria. See videos at LINK..
Perhaps Stevens became "expendable"? Weren't some arms ending up in AlQaeda's possession??

#4 Caveat at the beginning: I dislike doing analysis at this still-early stage. I dislike conspiracy theories even more.
But 'expendable' is possible. As is everything else at this point.
One open source mentioned "four CIA operatives" had been killed at Benghazi. Highly likely it is a mistake...
