TheBlaze reported on the chilling objective stated by Al Qaeda terrorists in the 2012 Benghazi attack — "We're here to kill Americans" — as a preview of a "60 Minutes" segment, "Benghazi."

The report aired Sunday and examines the horrific attack on the U.S. mission in Libya that took the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans on Sept. 11, 2012, noting that there were many unheeded warnings about the attack as well as misinformation regarding what sparked it — i.e., it wasn't caused by an anti-Muslim YouTube video, rather it was an Al Qaeda operation from the beginning.
