Report: Ambassador Stevens Said He Was on an Al-Qaeda Hit List

By Dashiell Bennett

The Benghazi consulate had been hit by a fire bomb in June, though no one was hurt. Despite the threats and the earlier attack, American officials still say that the attack that killed Stevens and three other Americans last week, was not an assault planned to coincide with the September 11 anniversary, but was rather an “opportunistic attack” that came about in the chaotic moments of protests against the anti-Muslim YouTube video. In either event, several members of Congress are asking why security at the compound was not stronger, given the growing threats from armed militants.

Gee, and I thought that because “Obama killed Osama,” we didn’t have to worry about Al Qaeda anymore!
