Stevens was meeting with the Turks in Benghazi an hour before the attack. The Turks went free. Why did Stevens meet with the Turks in Benghazi and not Tripoli? Which is safer? Which is more comfortable? Which is easier to get to? Why would Stevens travel with little protection from Tripoli to Benghazi to meet with the Turks when he personally knew there was a risk to his personal safety? Was he ordered to go? Was Stevens working for the CIA and his ambassadorship just a cover?
Who gave the orders?
Sorry. I have read too many Tom Clancy novels.

(I advocate indentured servitude for the 47% until the national debt is eliminated.)
Panetta might know. The gunrunning may have started during his
previous job. Petraeus may have been brought in to provide
unimpeachable war-hero credentials, and hence political cover, to the whole fustercluck. PS - this scandal is great material for Clancy’s future novels, I’m sure he’s taking lots of notes.
