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.
-——the principle of Occam’s razor applies-——
Trying to make a war into American internal machinations is simplistic conservative balderdash. FReepers fail to give the enemy credit for the ability to act and conduct a war.
The simple solution is that there is a war and the incident was a well planned and successful enemy assault that killed a high level target.
