The only thing - and this only slightly mitigates the incompetence on this issue by the State Department etc - is why the Ambassador would choose to be out and about on a day like September 11th. And why he did not just say 'Screw this...until I get real security, I am staying across the water in Italy.'

taking you at your word that you are not defending anyone

But, the fact that the ambassador was a true patriot and put his job ahead of his safety should not be a mitigating factor for anyone IMO
