To complex and fragile to be real
How so? It fits every verifiable detail as to timing and placement of personnel.
Stevens stayed later than everyone else (who left in August, I believe).
The video was an excuse. It had been released months earlier, and even the Libyans said there was no protest...that is was a terrorist act.
The security personnel were removed and indigenous personnel comprised the security team.
There WAS media babble about releasing the 'blind sheik'
What exactly DOESN'T fit?
IMHO, the principle of Occam's razor applies. That among competing hypotheses, the one which makes the fewest assumptions should be selected.
I can find no 'assumptions' in the author's theory, and the one assumption previously posed by another FReeper fits the facts as well.
It would explain WHY Obama wasn't concerned about the 3am phone call and why NOTHING was done while our people were being murdered.
One has to wonder what those people who ignored those cries for help are thinking now.
