“I am deeply saddened to learn of the death of four fellow Americans serving our country in Benghazi, Libya, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of these Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country. The work of our diplomats overseas is defined by courage and dedication to the United States’ commitment to freedom and democracy across the globe. These deplorable acts of violence on our facilities and countrymen will not shake our steadfast commitment to honor their work and sacrifice.”
