What bugs me most about this. Is that the government knew that the guy was potentially in danger.
And as some on the site have pointed out he might of been a CIA operative.
Yet chose not to beef up security.
We got to keep our guys safe.
No more rubber bullets at our embassies.



In the months leading up to his death, U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, worried about what he called the never-ending security threats in Benghazi and mentioned his name was on an al Qaeda hit list, a source familiar with his thinking told CNN.

Stevens specifically mentioned a rise in Islamic extremism and al Qaeda's growing presence in Libya, the source said.

American intelligence officials are investigating, but Matthew Olsen, the National Counterterrorism Center director, said Wednesday that it was unlikely that Stevens and his security team were killed by random protesters.

"I would say, yes, they were killed in course of terrorist attack on our embassy," Olsen said at a Senate Homeland Security hearing.

"I would say, yes, they were killed in course of a terrorist attack on our embassy," Olsen said at a Senate Homeland Security hearing.

translation: "Libyans are fighting back against the puppet government we installed and trying to take back their country."
