Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said there is "absolutely no information or reason to believe there is any basis" behind a claim that U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens was on an al Qaeda hit list. The comments came after a source "familiar with Stevens' thinking" told CNN that the diplomat claimed to him that he was on the list. Stevens was killed Sept. 11 during a large protest in Benghazi. The U.S. is probing whether or not the attack was premeditated or if was over an anti-Islam video made by a filmmaker in the U.S.
