Al-Qaeda Hit List? US Ambassador Stevens Worried He Was An Al-Qaeda Target

US Ambassador Stevens May Have Been On Al-Qaeda Hit List

US Ambassador Chris Stevens reportedly believed he was on an Al-Qaeda hit list shortly before he died during an attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The National Counterterrorism Center Director acknowledged on Wednesday at a Senate Homeland Security meeting that Stevens and three other Americans in Libya were killed “in the course of a terrorist attack,” reports CNN.

Senator John McCain believes that it doesn’t make sense that White House, Sec. Clinton and United Nations’ Ambassador Susan Rice previously stated that, “it was not a terrorist attack, when obviously it had all the earmarks of a terrorist attack.”

He also added that Stevens should have been given more security in Libya, especially after reports of a growing al-Qaeda presence in Benghazi.

While the source close to Stevens has said that Stevens thought he was on the al-Qaeda hit list, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discounted the rumor, saying on Thursday that there is “no information” that the US Ambassador was on any kind of al Qaeda hit list, notes ABC News.

Referring to the report by CNN, Clinton stated that she had “no reason to believe that there’s any basis for that.” Stevens was killed a little over a week ago, along with two former Navy SEALs, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, and State Department computer expert Sean Smith.

Weeks before he died, Doherty informed ABC News that he was working in Libya with the State Department to track down dangerous surface-to-air missiles, which were looted during the revolution last year.

Many rumors, including the idea that US Ambassador Chris Stevens was on an al-Qaeda hit list, continue to swirl as an official investigation has been launched into the attack on the US Consulate in Libya. National Counterterrorism Director Matthew Olsen also stated on Wednesday that American intelligence was “looking at indications that individuals involved in the attack may have had connections to al Qaeda or al Qaeda’s affiliates — in particular, al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.”

    If anyone still plans on casting a vote for Obama ( No longer can I call him President, nor should any of you!), ask your self this- am I a traitor to my country? The answer is this-YES YOU ARE!

    Why you ask? America deserves more than self centered leadership from one an entire nation, and the free world depend on to survive. “American’s deserve the truth”, his own words campaigning the day after debate to his unthinking mass of worshipers. “Bull Shiter” he calls his rival as he runs despicable campaign for reelection. What an embarrassment incumbent Obama has proven to be while holding the highest office other’s have tarnished over the years. Two wrongs don’t make a President!

    America deserves more from a leader of the noblest nation to exist than a “Rock Star in Chief”! Open microphone catches the leader of America telling Russia’s leader to be patient till after his reelection! The news hears nothing to report on. The few true reporters who do listen to the words coming out of his mouth, are ridiculed by the controlled press. Sounds like Russia, not America to me.

    “Freedom of the press’ meant something once IN THIS IF NOT ANY OTHER COUNTRY. Free from restraint of government control, for the people’s good. Our champions ferreting out corruption, exposing any who dared harm or cheat America, no matter the power they faced. Afraid yet willing to stand up to any, even if alone. When did the last one die? Why have none come forward to carry on? Where is he or she buried, the champion of truth so I may go honor him or her at their graveside? Will I find flowers adorning their final resting place, or will it be as barren as their replacements souls?

    What form of payment, how many pieces of silver, to deny America Truth? We have to know as a nation, I have to know as a man. I am not afraid to ask.
    them why, those views men we suffer today, its their reply to me I fear. How can I believe them, as all they do is lie. Change the channel and the story does also, edited or out of context, with smirks replacing smiles. Thrills run down one’s leg, as denial of facts are spoken as gospel, to gullible minds.

    Evil exists today despite denial of truth from America’s highest elected in the land. Extremists continue their unjust battle over all America stands for today, and evermore, no matter what Obama claims. Campaigning forever during this first and hopefully last term, while brave son’s of America, begged for help and died unaided. Why? I’ll tell you why-

    A cry for help drowned out by Obama campaign applause. With the release of State Department documents from Ambassador Stevens and others stationed in Libya, proves personal ambitions of current Admin outweighed their lives.

    American’s have been told falsehoods, backed by biased media as Candy Crowley’s debate backing of lies prove beyond a shadow of doubt to us now. Why? What justification has President Obama’s admin for ignored pleas for protection, the last one on these brave Americans day of horrible death?

    To win an election, while four of Americas finest lost their lives needlessly, is of little or no concern to certain so called News people today.
    Many weeks of story about video allowed by them all despite growing evidence of actual terror attack. Why?

    Read the many pages released , and ask them (The so called news) why the truth is so easily offset for personal reasons each of them have. It is not a party issue, it is a moral one.

    Four dead Americans deserve answers, as well as their family and friends, and us. Their funerals broadcast on many channels, used as a platform to promote the story of the video, the lie. Why?

    Why if not for the sake of reelection of President Obama? Why? Please give me another reason. Prove to me it is not true. I need to know why. Our people died begging for help from America, their country and ours. Why?
    WHY? WHY? OBAMA?
