Gen. Ham (4 Star) was in command of AFRICOM at the time of the attack. BTW he was relieved of that command a few weeks ago. Also, you may find it interesting that the RADM in command of the carrier group in the mIddle East was also relieved around the same time.
Sorry, not true. GEN Ham remains in command of AFRICOM. He replaced GEN Ward in that billet, and his replacement has in turn been named, but awaits Senate confirmation. The RADM in question was relieved for other reasons not known to me. However, his flagship, USS Stennis was in port in Thailand on 10 Sep, so his relief had nothing to do with Benghazi.
