8. It would be good to know what went wrong
..so it doesn't happen again. It was the first time an active US Ambassador was killed in the line of duty in over 40 years, so these types of attacks don't just happen. No investigation into the killings of any individuals will ever bring them back, but that doesn't mean you classify such investigations as witch hunts and consider them not worth the effort.
Why did congress deny that request? How much more fortified would our outposts/embassies have been had they granted the request? Even without congress taking action, is there something that could have been done in response to individual requests from Ambassador Stevens related to this outpost? After the attack started, are there any actions the military and/or the administration could have taken that might have save American lives? And why spread what you know is misinformation after the fact?
Most importantly, how should all of the above parties act differently in the future in an effort to insure this doesn't happen again? We honor the four who lost their lives if at the very least we seek to understand what went wrong and handle it better in the future. It hardly seems deranged to want us to learn from this and better protect our people. But maybe it's just me...
