I think I see the president differently than the writer did, so I attribute a different motive toward letting the ambassador and those with him die. I heard once that the ambassador was questioning the US foreign policies and such and was investigating the US government and such (I'm not too clear on the details). This would explain why he was not only allowed to die, but was left in this dangerous situation for months and months without asked-for support. Seeing him as a whistle-blower and a threat to the government's power is a more powerful reason to have him killed than some ideology.
