Ambassador Chris Stevens' journal
There's a flap going on between the State Dept. and CNN. I've been watching Fox News and reading about it on line today.
Four days after our consulate was attacked and Ambassador Stevens was killed. CNN was in the consulate and found Amb. Stevens' journal. One does wonder why on day 4 the consulate was not in US protective custody and why CNN and others were allowed to go through the buildings to find whatever was still there.
The State Dept is up in arms because CNN has released some of what Stevens wrote about the growing unrest and threats of terrorism.
The State Dept. is outraged and calls it a "diary" or a "personal" journal. Reports are that it is not a diary, it is a professional journal which contains Stevens' concerns which might also contain his concern over the need for greater protection. I am not sure about that. I have not read nor heard the exact words in the journal.
I think of key importance in this whole flap is ... 4 days later our government had not put the consulate under protection so that anyone was able to go through the buildings and take whatever could be found.
Is the consulate and its contents secure today?
