Christopher Stevens; information management officer Sean Smith; and former Navy SEALs, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
Adam Jentleson, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s Communications Director:

This is really how they’re going to play it?
As I understand it, the president’s defenders’ primary argument is “Brah, wingnuts be all like ‘Benghazi! Benghazi!! Benghazi!!! LOL wut”
