according to State the original gunfight was with State security, I think a total of five agents armed with handguns and M4s with body armor and helmets. One agent located Stevens and Smith in the "safe room" that became their grave while the others secured a vehicle to transport the group to the safe house. It was not until the attack on the safehouse IIRC that the former SEALs became involved. By this time Stevens and Smith were already gone. The firefight lasted six hours and as formidable as SEALs are it is doubtful that the two alone could have resisted that long.

Now whether this story is truthful is another issue. I for one want to hear from the security guys who State says were there. Without starting a witchunt I think Issa should subpoena them and the vids and radio comms. My own feeling is that if five guys are tasked with protecting Stevens and Stevens winds up dead then some or all of those five should be lying beside him, like Randy Shuggart and Gary Gordon

That is very doubtful since there is supposedly(read this on another site today) a video of the ambassador flung over a back of a guy in the streets raising his hand to his eye.

The comment was something like..."that sort of defies gravity for a dead man".

If that is true then the ambassador's death was horrific and painful, not to mention a nightmare for this administration.
