(CNN) -- In the months leading up to his death, Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, worried about constant security threats in Benghazi and mentioned that his name was on an al Qaeda hit list, a source familiar with his thinking told CNN.

Cover up after the disaster - with a nod and wink from the MSM...
Why was Stephens in Benghazi on 9-11? Why not in the fortified embassy in Tripoli?
Who sent him to Benghazi on 9-11, when he had death threats against him?
I would have resigned if I thought my safety was in jeopardy, especially in that part of the world. I wonder if, when he got appointed to be ambassador, he thought this was going to be a plumb assignment? I don’t know if I would have taken the gig in the first place.
Excellent questions indeed!
I wonder if he was being blackmailed and was told to go or else.
It is prudent to assume that ALL US embassy personnel in the ME are on SOMEBODY’s hit list & therefore (just to be clear) they are ALL in extreme danger.
According to articles I've read, the attack occurred around 10 p.m. Since when do protests take place after dark? Attacks, yes...protests, NO!! I am so sick and tired of the term "protest" being used when it was obviously a pre-planned attack, conducted at night to take advantage of the dark to have the element of surprise, and to protect those committing the crime.
That Obama flag is so appropriate since it features the blood trails of Americans who have died as a result of Obama’s policies.
Well, then, he shouldn’t have made that movie! ... Oh, wait ...
So it was really an assassination. And Obama could give a damn. And he had the nerve to use the 4 slain for a photo op. Lousy SOB............
Hitlery is giving an “intelligence briefing” to the Intelligence Committee today.
That’s a powerful image..
There was another thread where folks were trying to come up with an image of the bloody handprint & the “Obama” flag .... people were seeing a visual connection. This image was more what I was thinking than the images posted on that thread (last time I visited) and I think it is just ‘perfect’ in a lot of ways. Obama’s vision of America & his policies led to blood being spilled ... and he has done nothing about it .... doesn’t even act bothered about it .... trips to Laa Vegas, Letterman, Beyonce/JayZ party, etc. As Allen West said last night, he should be in the ‘situation room’ taking care of business.
ME protests: the hardline 'tele-Islamist' who brought anti-Islam film to Muslim world's attention

"It was planned, definitely. It was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago. And they were planning this criminal act since their arrival," Magariaf said.
"The intelligence source said no protests were happening before the attackers struck at about 9:35 p.m. local time last Tuesday. The account backs up claims by a purported Libyan security guard who told McClatchy Newspapers late last week that the area was quiet before the attack."
(Ambassador) RICE: -- "was a result, a direct result of a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated, that the US government had nothing to do with,..."
"The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a continuing security breach, and that credible information about possible attacks had been ignored. A U.S. official told POLITICO: There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated."
No doubt about it. There is no intelligence in the 0bama administration.
Obama is a total disgrace to the Office of the President and the USA. Just beyond comprehension that this guy has a decent chance of 4 more years.
