Al Qaeda weapons expert: U.S. ambassador to Libya killed by lethal injection

According to a March 14 posting on an al Qaeda-linked website, Dhu-al-Bajadin stated that Stevens was given a lethal injection that was overlooked during the autopsy.

The "plan was based on abduction and exchange of high-level prisoners," the terrorist wrote on the prominent jihadist Web forum Ansar al-Mujahideen Network.

"However, the operation took another turn, for a reason God only knows, when one of the members of the jihadist cell improvised and followed Plan B."

Dhu-al-Bajadin's claim of assassination also was copied to the Ansar al-Mujahidin website from the al Qaeda-accredited website Shumukh al-Islam.

That site is open only to members, and the claim initially was posted for Dhu-al-Bajadin by a member identified as Adnan Shukri.

The reference to Shumukh al-Islam has boosted the credibility of the claim among some U.S. intelligence analysts.

A Western intelligence official said Dhu-al-Bajadin is a well-known jihadist and a key figure behind a magazine called Al Qaeda Airlines.
