After the attack on the Libyan embassy, the White House told us that he was taken to the hospital by a helpful crowd, and that he was suffering from smoke inhalation.
Current news is that Ambassador Stevens was raped before he was killed. If so, then this is pure jihad doctrine. The rules for rape of captured Kafirs (unbelievers) are Sunna. At the conquest of the Jews in Khaybar, the Hadith are explicit that captured Kafirs can be raped.
