After the fall of Col. Moammar Gadhafi in 2011, Libyan tensions fired up, and embassies were abandoned. Then, on Sept. 11, 2012, heavily armed Islamist militants launched an organized attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi. Four Americans were killed: U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty and State Department computer expert Sean Smith.

Saying God was with him, means God was not with the others, not as lucky
as he was.
Any believer would attribute his survival to God’s grace. Suggests nothing about anyone else or their disposition toward God.
No it does not mean that. At all. Dead or alive, God is with me. And when He decides its time for me to go I’m gone.
What should have been said I’d God watched over me and my fellow
friends. But it wasn’t my time to go.
God watches out over believers.
Yes, and sometimes He calls them home.
