(CNN) — Three days after he was killed, CNN found a journal belonging to late U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. The journal was found on the floor of the largely unsecured consulate compound where he was fatally wounded.
Lucky for us, at least Ambassador’s Stevens’ papers were found by an American reporter, via Darleen Click, Protein Wisdom:
CNN broke a pledge to the late ambassador’s family that it wouldn’t report on the diary, said State Department spokesman Philippe Reines, a senior adviser to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
In a blistering statement, Reines called CNN’s actions “indefensible.”
CNN’s reporting was not of salacious nor irrelevant gossip from a personal diary, but of seven pages of direct, work-related observations and opinions of Chris Stevens. Now Hillary’s advisor is blasting CNN “for the family”?
What is indefensible, CNN’s reporting a public official’s work product, or Mrs. Clinton’ State Department failing to secure our consulate in Benghazi even after Ambassador Stevens’ murder?
