I have no special inside information. Just looking at a situation which makes little sense.

I found the most comprehesive account of events here so I will run through some of the items I find of particular interest.
New Details From Libya Consulate Attack: State Department Abandons Claim Of Protest Outside Gates


Sept. 10-11, 2012:

Stevens arrives in Benghazi and holds meetings on and off the consulate grounds on Sept. 10. He spends the night, and for the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. holds meetings only inside the compound.

First off the attack appears to have directly targeted Stevens and possibly Smith. What I found most interesting about the fact above is that Stevens had just arrived in country so somehow someone would have had to have the intel that he was showing up in the first place.



Around 8:30 p.m.:

Stevens finishes his final meeting of the day and escorts a Turkish diplomat outside the main entrance of the consulate. The situation is calm. There are no protests.

Around 9:40 p.m.:

Agents hear loud noises, gunfire and explosions near the front gate. A barracks at the entrance housing the local militiamen is burnt down. Agents viewing cameras see large groups of armed men flowing into the compound. Alarm is sounded. Telephone calls are made to the embassy in Tripoli, officials in Washington, the Libyan authorities and a U.S. quick reaction force located at a second compound a little over a mile away.

This account makes it very clear that this was not, nor had any appearance of, a spontaneous attack. Yet someone(s) gave out that message, and it was not just the WH as it was all over this board as a mob attack. I actually posted the first message that it was something other than that when I read a report that made more sense. The question is who was putting out the false impression of a mob attack?


Grabbing weapons:

One agent, armed with a sidearm and an M4 submachine gun, takes Stevens and computer specialist Sean Smith to a safe room inside one of the compound's two main residences. It has a heavy metal grill and several locks, medical supplies and water, and windows that can be opened only from the inside. The other agents equip themselves with long guns, body armor, helmets and ammunition at other buildings. Two try to make it to the building with Stevens. They are met by armed men and are forced to retreat.

This shows that there were well armed and, I am sure, very well trained individuals guarding the consulate. Most mobs are held at bay with live rounds fired into the air.

Attackers breach the compound:

Attackers penetrate Stevens' building and try to break the grill locks for the safe room, but cannot gain access. They dump jerry cans of diesel fuel in the building, light furniture on fire and set aflame part of the exterior of the building. Two of the remaining four agents are in the compound's other residence. Attackers penetrate that building, but the agents barricade themselves in and the attackers can't reach them. Attackers try to enter the tactical operations center, where the last two agents are located. They smash up the door but cannot enter the building.

This sounds like whoever planned this had a floor plan of the building and knew where everything was and what the importance of each option had. This probably has a simple answer but were the attackers just happening to carry jerry cans of diesel? Where did they get it? How long from the initial breach until the used the diesel fuel?



Americans trapped:

Meanwhile, Stevens' building rapidly fills up with thick diesel smoke and burning fumes from the furniture. Inside, visibility is less than 3 feet. Unable to breathe, the Americans go to a bathroom and open a window, but still can't get enough air. They decide to leave the building. The agent goes first, flopping out onto a patio enclosed by sandbags. He takes immediate fire, including probably rocket-propelled grenades. Stevens and Smith don't come out of the building. The agent, suffering severely from smoke inhalation, goes in and out of the building several times to look for them. He then climbs a ladder to the roof of the building and collapses. He radios the other agents to alert them to the situation there.

The other four agents are able to reunite and take an armored vehicle to Stevens' building. They reach the collapsed agent and try to set up a perimeter. They take turns going into the building, searching on hands and knees for the missing Americans. Smith is pulled out, dead. Stevens cannot be found.

'The agent goes out first and immediately takes fire.' Who the Hell are these people that they seem to know every move before it is even made? First time amateurs I am sure. (sarcasm) Stevens can not be found. Was the taken hostage? If so who would have been able to operate within the choking smoke when others couldn't?


Reinforcements:

A six-person quick reaction security team arrives from their compound across town. About 60 Libyan militiamen accompany them. They attempt to secure a perimeter around Stevens' building, and take turns going inside. Taking fire, Libyan forces determine they can't hold the perimeter. A decision is made to evacuate the compound and return with everyone to the reaction force's compound.

There was addition forces, 66 to be exact, ready to assist. The problem was the attack was a lightning strike, extremely well executed. What I have not heard was was any of the attackers captured or even killed.


Evacuation:

Agents pile into an armored vehicle, with Smith's body, and leave through the main gate. They face immediate fire. Crowds and groups of men block two different routes to the security compound. Heavy traffic means they are traveling only about 15 mph, and trying not to attract attention. On a narrow street they reach a group of men who signal for them to enter a compound. They sense an attack and speed away, taking heavy fire from AK-47 machine guns at a distance of only 2 feet, and hand grenades thrown against and under the car. Two tires are blown out.

Once again someone had to have a lot of intel. How the Hell did someone know the route they would be taking on leaving the consulate. And the car was attacked with AK-47s and hand grenades. These are not your average, everyday type of protester here. These people were out to capture and/or kill specific targets and were very knowledge about how to do so, even down the the escape route they would take if the diesel fuel did not work.

They speed past another crowd of men and onto a main street and across a grassy median into opposing traffic. The agents drive against traffic, eventually reaching their compound. Security gets into firing positions around the compound and on the roof. They take more gunfire and rocket-propelled grenades intermittently for several hours.

Still more efforts to capture or kill the intended targets.

More reinforcements:

In the night, a team of reinforcements from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli arrives on a chartered aircraft at the Benghazi airport and reaches the security compound.

Around 4 a.m.:

The compound's building is hit by mortar fire. The roof is hit and two security personnel are killed. One agent involved in the attack from the beginning is severely wounded. The men decide to evacuate the city entirely. They spend the next hours securing the annex and moving a large convoy of vehicles to the airport. They evacuate on two flights.

So the question is who planned and organized such a large scale and well prepared attack on the Libya consulate? And why is it that republicans seem to benefit from terrorists attacks? Is the republican congress really trying to get to the bottom of any of this or are they just using the deaths of Americans for political gain. Biden said that he will get to the bottom of this and those responsible will be held accountable. I hope for once the truth comes out.
