1:15 a.m.: CIA reinforcements arrive on a 45-minute flight from Tripoli in a plane theyve hastily chartered. The Tripoli team includes four GRS security officers, a CIA case officer and two U.S. military personnel on loan to the agency. They dont leave the Benghazi airport until 4:30 a.m. The delay is caused by negotiations with Libyan authorities over permission to leave the airport; obtaining vehicles; and the need to frame a clear mission plan. The first idea is to go to a Benghazi hospital to recover Stevens, who they rightly suspect is already dead. But the hospital is surrounded by the al-Qaeda-linked Ansar al-Sharia militia that mounted the consulate attack.
Obama should have been on the phone with the President of Libya to facilitate things. Three hours at the airport? And then they know the hospital is surrounded by an a AQ linked organization? Why wasn't this called a terrorist attack rather than a spontaneous attack linked to a video.
Now that we have the timeline, the investigation really begins. And that timeline was available on September 11 and 12. Obama and Hillary lied their asses off to us and it makes the ceremony at Andrews a disgusting farce.

This makes it sound like the kidnapping hypothesis may be right. Perhaps Ansar al-Sharia took him to the hospital after recovering him from the room as seen in the video. They were supposed to capture him alive, hence the celebration, they took him to the hospital and waited to see if he would survive in order to kidnap him.
