27. Chris Stevens set up camp in Benghazi not in Misrata or the Berber areas.

The area in E. Libya between Benghazi and Tobruk also accounted for the largest percentage of foreign al-Qaeda suicide bombers in Iraq. Stevens was well aware of the presence of al-Qaeda and affiliated groups in Benghazi, he wrote a 2008 cable analyzing the groups. Obviously, it was obviously very important to the Obama Admin. to have someone on the ground in Benghazi coordinating Jihadist and Salaafist groups in the area. See, my post yesterday, Blowback in Benghazi, http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021343355
