Need to Know News: Ambassador believed he was on al Qaeda list; Focus on Florida as campaign rolls on

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For September 20, 2012 – Slain ambassador Chris Stevens said he was on al Qaeda list, focus stays on Florida as campaign rolls on and the iPhone 5 may be Apple's last blowout U.S. bestseller...

Slain ambassador Stevens said he was on al Qaeda list: "In the months leading up to his death, U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens worried about what he called the never-ending security threats in Benghazi and mentioned that his name was on an al Qaeda hit list, a source familiar with his thinking told CNN."

• Focus stays on Florida as campaign rolls on: "Florida takes center stage in the presidential campaign Thursday, with President Barack Obama heading to Miami for Spanish-language network Univision's 'Meet the Candidates' town hall meeting. Republican challenger Mitt Romney campaigns in Sarasota."

• Controversial 'Defeat Jihad' ad to appear in NYC subways: A controversial advertisement that critics say is hateful toward Muslims will appear in New York City subway stations starting next week, despite the city's attempts to halt the campaign."

• Two million more expected to pay penalty under Obamacare: "Congress' official scorekeeper said Wednesday that roughly two million more Americans will pay penalties under President Barack Obama's health care law for lacking insurance than had previously been estimated."

• The iPhone 5 may be Apple's last blowout U.S. bestseller: "Industry analysts widely expect the iPhone 5 to be the bestselling mobile device of all time. Given the way Apple continues winning over consumers around the world, the iPhone 5's global record will probably last exactly one sales cycle, until the iPhone 6 is released."

    Why is the administration not admitting to the attack in Libya. My nephew is a retired FBI agent and said there is too much covering up. The ambassador had no or very little security. The 2 seals had nothing to do with his security. I was shock that he told me that Valarie Jarrett has 24 hr security. I think we need to have more information on this as I fear for the security of the US. There is to much going on and nothing from the WH....silence. Shameful.
