Us Ambassador to Libya Killed

President Obama condemned the “outrageous and shocking” attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that left the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans dead, as he and other officials vowed to “bring justice” to the killers while moving quickly to bolster security in Libya and at other diplomatic posts.

“Make no mistake. Justice will be done,” Obama said, speaking from the Rose Garden alongside Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Those who knew Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and the others killed expressed shock and grief Wednesday at the tragedy, which occurred on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Obama and Clinton both condemned the killers, while stressing that the U.S. bond with the Libyan government would not suffer as a result.

“Make no mistake. We will work with the Libyan government to bring justice to killers who attack our people,” Obama said, adding: “There is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None.”
