Report: Murdered Ambassador Knew He Was On Al Qaeda Hit List

While the Obama administration finally begins to cop to the fact that the Libyan assault on our Benghazi consulate and the murder of our ambassador was in fact a terrorist attack, new details arise showing that they knew all along that such an attack could in fact take place. Not only that – despite that knowledge, they left our ambassador virtually unguarded. In Libya. When will Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her emissaries be held accountable?

The newest reports are even more shocking than older ones. According to Anderson Cooper 360 this evening, American ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens “said he was on #alQaeda hit list #Libya, according to source.” If that’s true, clearly the State Department had advance warning not only that the Libyan consulate was in danger, but that Stevens himself was personally targeted. Nonetheless, security surrounding the Ambassador was apparently contracted out to an unarmed British group.

When will Congress launch a full-scale investigation into this travesty?
