Christopher Stevens (April 18, 1960 - September 11, 2012) was appointed by President Barack Hussein Obama as chief liaison officer between the Obama administration and the Libyan Islamic Fighters Group. Obama sought to dispel longtime Libyan strongman Muammar al-Gaddafi by granting aide -- money, weapons, training, and logistical support -- for the al-Qaeda affiliated groups. Ambassador Stevens was murdered by the same Obama allies on the eleventh anniversary of the 2001 September 11 attacks.
