I think he would have been honest. Remember there were intel reports showing as much as 6 months ago an attack was coming. Stevens himself asked more than once to have security beefed up.What's the ambassador going to do? Contradict them when he owes his life to them?
Maybe. But remember you're dealing with a mindset that believes if we don't have U.S. military guarding the embassy...if we don't let the security put bullets in their guns...it will show these goons that we come in peace and they won't attack us.No, I still think there is more to this.
I think it's nothing more than incompetence.
