FILE - This Sept. 13, 2012 file photo shows a man walking the burned shell of the U.S. consulate, in Benghazi, Libya, after an attack that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. One by one, behind closed doors, military officers explained to congressional investigators what they did, and didn’t do, the night the Benghazi diplomatic post burned in transcripts of 30 hours of testimony released Wednesday, July 9, 2014. Nine officers, including retired Gen. Carter Ham, then the head of the military’s U.S. Africa Command, described making on-the-fly decisions with only sparse information about the crisis unfolding. None of them was in Benghazi. The closest? Some were 600 miles away in Tripoli, the Libyan capital; others gave orders from command headquarters in Germany or Washington.
