U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens wanted a Security Support Team, made up of 16 special operations soldiers, to stay with him in Libya after their deployment was scheduled to end in August, 2012. The head of Special Forces in Libya said the State Department removed 34 people from the security force despite pleas that personnel there were in danger. Documents also back up claims by security personnel previously station in Libya that there was a shortage of security personnel in Benghazi.
