On the night of September 11, 2012, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were murdered during a brutal 13-hour terrorist attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Since that time, people have been furious that not enough was done to help Stevens and the others who were brutally murdered. But now, information has been released revealing Ambassador Stevens final words.
On Monday, giving testimony in Washington against terrorist Ahmed Abu Khattala, who’s accused of orchestrating the attack on the consulate, Diplomatic Security Special Agent Scott Wickland, the ambassador’s bodyguard, revealed Stevens’ harrowing last words:
“When I die, you need to pick up my gun and keep fighting,” Stevens told Wickland.
Independent Journal Review reports on Wickland’s testimony:
In his testimony, Wickland admitted he didn’t know if he was going to survive the attack. He also described the heartbreaking moment he lost Stevens and U.S. State Department staffer Sean Smith.
Wickland said he saw Stevens and Smith crawling behind him as they searched for a bedroom with a window to escape out of. When he exited the window, he was alone.
Vomiting from the smoke and taking fire, Wickland climbed out of the room and pulled the ladder up.
“That’s when I knew [Stevens and Smith] were dead,” Wickland recalled.
According to The Washington Post, “Abu Khattala has pleaded not guilty to 18 counts including murder, attempted murder, material support of terrorism and destruction of U.S. facilities in the Benghazi attacks of Sept. 11 and Sept. 12, 2012. He faces a life sentence if convicted.”
Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was serving as secretary of state under President Barack Obama at the time of the attack, an attack she initially, and falsely, blamed on an anti-Islam YouTube video.
