Skip to comments.Clinton: No sign that Stevens believed he was on an al Qaeda hit list
Posted on 09/22/2012 8:23:52 AM PDT by tobyhill
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday she has "absolutely no information or reason to believe there is any basis" to suggest that U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens believed he was on an al Qaeda hit list.
The remark came after a source familiar with Stevens' thinking told CNN that in the months leading up to his death, Stevens worried about constant security threats in Benghazi and mentioned that his name was on an al Qaeda hit list.
Stevens spoke about a rise in Islamic extremism and al Qaeda's growing presence in Libya, the source said.
The White House, for the first time Thursday, declared the attack that killed Stevens and three other people a terrorist attack.

So going by Hillary’s record this past week you can be certain her statement reveals the truth that Stevens was most definitely on the Al Queda hit list.
Conflicting stories again with the white hut’s “official” story being another LIE in an effort to deceive the US citizens-—of course, the koolaid drinkers will keep on swilling.
Well, perhaps Miz Clinton wasn’t interested in finding out about information that ran counter to her fantasy about an “Arab Spring.” She preferred to dance with the natives, while her boss preferred to golf and go on Lefty TV venues.
What a disastrous duo we are stuck with because of the most ignorant, gullible voters on the planet!
This is the ambassador in his own words. He was worried about something.
Who’s the idiot. Who is the person that is wrong all the time?
It’s fringe benefits you idiot.
-We get french benefits right!?
-It’s fringe benefits dumba$$
Well, as more information on the ‘ex’ SEALs real mission in Libya leaks out, It is quite possible that THEY were the real target, and Stevens merely a bonus.
Supposedly the ‘ex’ SEALs were there to recover some advanced weapons that 0bama ‘loaned’ the rebels. Perhaps the Al Qaeda types wanted to keep them.
Well at least we have some strong leadership in Congress and they are DEMANDING her immediate RESIGNATION...RIGHT?
Link about SEALs mission.
Is the old bag still all drugged up ..... a..n..d ..... s..p..e..a..k..i..n..g ..... s..l..o..w..l..y ..... s..o ..... s..h..e ..... c..a..n ..... u..n..d..e..r..s..t..a..n..d ..... h..e..r..s..e..l..f ..... ?
Hillary can set the store straight every time. She has her finger on the Scotch glass, oh I mean the truth. /sarcasm
lesseee....a homosexual WM..assigned to a armpit of Islamo-insanity...as a representative of “Satanic America” on 911 expresses some concern...and our WITLESS Secretary of State and “Commander-in-Chief” are all “Gomer Pyle” surprised?!!!
These clowns haven’t the common sense to pour whisket outa a boot with instructions on the heel!!
DC is short a few rocket scientists...fer shure...
As if anyone believes any Clinton saying anything about anything.
she..... speaks..... slowly..... to avoid.... the word.....um...and ....... ahh.....
God save us from these idiots in power.
Hildabeast is a pathological liar. I wouldn’t take her word on “What’s for dinner?”
...a source familiar with Stevens' thinking told CNN that in the months leading up to his death, Stevens worried about constant security threats in Benghazi and mentioned that his name was on an al Qaeda hit list.And, the jackholes of the Zero administration denied that the attacks were anything but "protests" against a few minutes of underproduced truth-telling -- until this week, when they finally admitted that they weren't. They are liars. They lie continually. They can't be trusted with a burned-out match.
Of COURSE he had no idea ... he was set up by enough reassuring words from enough people that he said, “Yeah .. sure .. I’ll go into a hotbed of ant-American hate .. what can go wrong”?
Part of the story here is that the ex-seals working to acquire MANPADS. As far as those things being smuggled in to the US they are already here and have been here for years. Don’t be surprised some morning when you wake up and find that dozens of commercial airliners have been shot out of the sky. If they wake up the sleepers and tell them to use them there will be lots of dead. And it will kill the airline industry.
The odds of this happening right now are slim because they have a guy at the top on the inside who is destroying the country while our representatives in Washington sit and do nothing.
Hmmmm....Nigeria...Yellow Cake....Joe and Valerie
Hillary and Obama have blood on their hands.
Before we assassinated Khaddaffi, he said the rebels were being led by former guantanamo detainees.
I’m sure she is now ENTIRELY scripted by Obama. When will she have guts enough to quit. Now...would be perfect.
Ambassador Stevens gets the Vince Foster treatment.....
... And do the Clintons get away with it yet once again?
If Senate and Congressional Republicans had any cojones they would be grabbing every mike they can to reiterate that:
1) Obama and Clinton are incompetent
2) Every move Obama and Clinton makes over there (in every country) works to the benefit of the Muslim Brotherhood
3) What happened in Benghazi was criminal negligence on the part of the Obama Administration and — especially — of the State Department
4) Clinton should resign or be fired and be investigated by a special prosecutor,
5) Obama should be impeached for aiding and abetting our al-Qaeda enemies.
Obama has reduced Hillary to a useless little nub of acquiesence, and I’ve never quite figured out how this happened. While I never liked her in any way, I thought she would have been aggressive enough to assert herself, but she has let herself be ignored and even humiliated since the very beginning, and now she seems to have accepted this as the norm. Bill seems cool with it,too.
There’s nothing Obama could have on them that isn’t already known, and in any case, Bill Clinton is protected by the fact that he could be shown holding a dagger and rising from a bloody corpse and people would still think he was a really nice, cool guy, and Hillary would be protected by Bill’s image. So I can’t figure out why she’s doing this...and I don’t think she’s ever going to get the guts to quit.
In fact, I don’t think she even wants to.
Who ya gonna believe, the Ambassador or her own lying eyes?
Who would you believe, someone who knew Stevens and discussed his concerns with him, or Hitlary, who most likely never talked with Stevens personally?
That's normal for this White House and Hillary. Who would believe someone who lied about being under fire, where their daughter was on 9/11, and where those Rose Law Firm records were? That's just a smidgen of the lies HIllary's told over the years.
Bill’s first love is money and lots of it.
It'll be nice to see her thrown under the bus by Obama. Afterall, the Clintons were known for doing that themselves when they were in the White House. Seems appropriate that it should happen to them at the hands of a fellow Democrap.
These Salafist groups really despise Sufism, a fact that Stevens was keenly aware of.
A US Sufi ambassador? You bet he was a target.
President Nixon was run out of office because his administration supposedly tried to sneak a peek at some Democrat papers and then lied and tried to cover up.
The Obama administration has lied and tried to cover up their incompetence that resulted in the deaths of at least four Americans including a United States Ambassador who represented all of us. Which one is worse? Where is the front page story in The Washington Post? Where are Woodward and Bernstein? Where’s Robert Redford? And where are all the dipstick Democrats screaming, “Obama lied and Americans died!”
I am afraid the country cannot stand another 4 year assault by an unrestrained obama.
I would say the fact that Hillary! keeps letting herself get humiliated indicates that we don't know everything there is to know about her, but maybe obama does (and he probably has photos too).
CNN host Anderson Cooper admitted on Friday that the network had come across the late Ambassador Christopher Stevens’ personal journal and used parts of it in its reporting without disclosing the source.
On Wednesday on his show Anderson Cooper 360, the journalist told Senator John McCain that ‘a source familiar with Ambassador Stevens’ thinking told us that in the months before his death he talked about being worried about the never-ending security threats that he was facing in Benghazi, and specifically about the rise in Islamist extremism and growing al Qaeda presence.’
Cooper added that ‘the source also mentioned [Stevens] being on an al Qaeda hit list.’
Huma probably had hidden cameras. Wouldn’t be surprised if she shared the videos / photos with fellow Muslim Brotherhood traveler, 0bama.
Stevens apparently was a Sufi Muslim.
That’s interesting, the first I’ve heard of it. Any sources in particular?
Interesting. I didn’t know that Stevens was a Sufi. Has that been published somewhere?
Sufis in Islamic countries are considered heretics and are big targets for “orthodox” Muslims, although in the West, Sufis, who are often Western converts, actually do a lot of advocating for orthodox (that is, vicious) Muslims.
Do you know if he was part of the Marabitun movement? This was popular among British intellectuals - and still is - and has made inroads in Latin America and the United States, through European convert immigrants. Some of members of ETA became Muslims through this group. It’s not Sufism, though.
That said, I don’t think he was killed because he was a Sufi, or gay or anything else other than the fact that he was an American and represented America there.
Joe and Valerie were concerned with Niger’s yellowcake, not Nigeria.
A Libyan official stated that Stevens was a Sufi.
I don’t know if he was a member of a particular sect of Sufism.
My wild guess - Huma is keeping her in a perpetual happy state. And yes, some drugs are probably involved.
