Dead Ambassador’s Diary Revealed Concern of Islamist Threats
The diary belonging to Ambassador Chris Stevens revealed his concerns about the deteriorating security in Benghazi.
Four days after he was killed, CNN found a journal belonging to late U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. The journal was found on the floor of the largely unsecured consulate compound where he was fatally wounded…
…A source familiar with Stevens’ thinking told CNN earlier this week that, in the months leading up to his death, the late ambassador worried about what he called the security threats in Benghazi and a rise in Islamic extremism.
Stevens died on September 11, along with three other Americans, when the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi came under attack amid a large protest about a U.S.-made film that mocked the Muslim Prophet Mohammed.
Since June there had been four previous attacks on Western interests in Benghazi.
One of the attacks was an IED atack at the US Consulate on June 6, 2012.
Yet, despite this, the Obama Administration reportedly refused to provide even “standard security” at the consulate compound.
