    There are risks in life and being in Libya especially after a civil war was a huge risk. I think we all know that damn near everybody is heavily armed. If we or the Saudi's or Kuwait didn't arm these various groups then they had ample opportunity to take arms from the former gov't's stockpiles. And really, how much time would it take to put out a call to thirty or a hundred armed men in your whatever militia in a densely populated area such as Benghazi. This didn't have to be preplanned at all, it could have been a crime of opportunity.
