FOX Insider reported:
President Barack Obama addressed the nation Thursday morning, following the attack on the US Embassy in Libya that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
“There is no justification for this type of senseless violence,” he said, asking the world to come together to stand against such attacks. “This attack will not break the bonds between the United States and Libya.”
The president praised Stevens for working “tirelessly” for Libyans following the fall of the Qaddafi regime. “He was a role model to all who worked with him,” Obama said.
He also promised that the US and Libyan authorities will work closely to find those responsible for the attack.
I bet those Islamists are just shaking in their boots!
