Last year, I invited Chris Stevens to the White House Correspondents Dinner. He was a friend-of-a-friend, and a diplomat who was stationed in Benghazi, the rebel stronghold in Libya. I thought he would give an excellent, off-the-record update on everything that was going on.
“I’m supposed to go to Libya this wkd,” he wrote back. “I expect to be back by late April. I will let you know if I might be delayed.”
