The Accountability Review Board also stated that Stevens, who spoke both Arabic and French, wanted to help with staffing at the Benghazi Special Mission compound and to open a library.
He was scheduled to stay at the compound until Sept. 14. The compound wasn’t an official facility and didn’t have a Marine guard.
“Chris Stevens did not ask anyone for permission to go to Benghazi; I don’t think it would have crossed his mind,” Hillary Clinton told the House Foreign Affairs Committee in 2013, as reported by the Post.
Stevens, information officer Sean Smith and CIA contractors Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were killed in the attacks on Sept. 11, 2012.
