Reports are that was the ambassador, who is now also reported as having been killed in the attack.

Comparing the stock photo of the ambassador with the picture of the man being evacuated from the burning building suggests that it was indeed Christopher Stevens, who later died of smoke inhalation.

You think the photo is of someone trying to help him? Hmmm. Could be. Hadn't seen it that way at first.

I think so, yes. They really don't look like an angry chanting mob to me. Besides, it's also a good default assumption before jumping to any conclusions.
