SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Ambassador Chris Stevens' stepfather says Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has reached out to his family to offer her sympathies about the deadly Sept. 11 raid on the consulate in Libya that killed his stepson.

Still, the family is avoiding discussions of whether security was adequate as Clinton testified Wednesday on Capitol Hill about the department's missteps leading up to the assault at the U.S. facility in Benghazi.

Bob Commanday of Oakland says Clinton met with the family and has written them several times to express her regrets.

Commanday says the family has received no privileged information about the adequacy of diplomatic security leading up to the assault.
