State Department Slams CNN For Using Diary

Ambassador Stevens' diary, obtained by CNN, reveal his concerns about a possible attack

|

On Saturday night, State Department spokesperson Philipe Reines slammed CNN for its "disgusting" handling of Ambassador Christopher Stevens' diary. The diary helped confirm, as the network reported, that Stevens had been worried about the threat of an Al Qaeda attack, and even feared his own name was included on a hit list.

The blockbuster news contradicted the line the State Department and the administration had been pushing since the horrible tragedy took place almost two weeks ago: that there was no intelligence of a coming attack. In fact, the Ambassador himself was aware of a persistent high level threat against him.
