On Monday, an amateur video surfaced on the internet that appeared to show Libyan civilians trying to rescue U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens from a smoke-filled room at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi last week. The video seems to confirm reports that Stevens died from asphyxiation after he locked himself in the blazing building. The video also suggests that some of the civilians who stormed the consulate — in protest of an anti-Islam video — were prepared to help Stevens, not hurt him.
