asked by Malzberg if she believes Clinton is getting a pass, Denier
noted that the Clintons are “very powerful.”
her article, Denier provides an emotional account of the moment she
learned her fiancé was murdered:
I was at home in Laguna Beach, California when Matt Lauer’s voice
filled the air around me. I had barely had time for my first sip of
morning coffee while sitting in bed watching the Today Show.
A chill ran through my body as I stared at the television, unable to
absorb the information and the face I had just seen flash across the
TV. The man pictured had blond-gray hair, blue eyes, and a big white
grin I knew only too well. In disbelief I walked to the television
screen to get a closer look at his photo, his name clearly visible
underneath. I didn’t have my glasses on, but still the blindness that I
felt was not normal, I was in shock. His photo was replaced by images
of flames in the background.
Matt Lauer continued to report. “Reuters and AFP are reporting that the
American ambassador to Libya, along with three other State Department
workers have been killed in an attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi.
A Greek contractor with the US Mission in Benghazi is telling NBC that
he identified the body of Ambassador Chris Stevens in a Benghazi street
I wanted to run or to scream but I couldn’t. My knees were shaking and
unable to move. I felt a sharp pain pierce my heart. My blurry vision
was getting worse as I thought “Oh God, what is going on?” A wave of
nausea washed over me but I sat, frozen to my spot on the bed, staring
intently at the television screen.
“It couldn’t be him,” I tried to convince myself. “It has to be a
mistake; it must be another Chris Stevens.”
Then his picture reappeared. I grabbed my glasses and now I could see
without a doubt that there was no mistake; It was my Chris, my skinny
chicken and he was gone… forever.
