Excuses, Excuses: Mistaken Sense of Security Cited Before Envoy to Libya Died
He didn’t “die,” he was murdered. “Mistaken Sense of Security Cited Before Envoy to Libya Died”
Have some respect for the vicious act of terrorism that took his life. There’s only one important phrase taken right from the NYT’s lede: “even as threat warnings grew in the weeks before the recent attack.”

Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
