Christopher Stevens, US Ambassador to Libya Killed Along with 3 Others US Embassy staff officials in Rocket Attack … Obama WH Finally Confirms Story
Look what happens when you apologies to Islamists …
The US Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other US Embassy staff officials have been killed in a rocket attack on their car during Islamist protests. The were killed near the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Can you say, ACT OF WAR! For hours there was no confirmation by the US State Department that Christopher Stevens had been murdered. Finally the Obama WH has confirmed the accounts, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Embassy staff members have been killed. Sorry, but it is time for Barack Obama to do his job. Enough of the Comedian in Chief, enough of the Campaigner in Chief, enough of making a joke of the Presidency … its time to be Commander in Chief. This was an act of war against a US Embassy and the murder of a US Ambassador and three other Embassy officials. What are you going to do?
The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack on their car, a Libyan official said, as they were rushed from a consular building stormed by militants denouncing a U.S.-made film insulting the Prophet Mohammad.
Gunmen had attacked and burned the U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi, a center of last year’s uprising against Muammar Gaddafi, late on Tuesday evening, killing one U.S. consular official. The building was evacuated.
The Libyan official said the ambassador, Christopher Stevens, was being driven from the consulate building to a safer location when gunmen opened fire.
“The American ambassador and three staff members were killed when gunmen fired rockets at them,” the official in Benghazi told Reuters.

Statement from Obama White House finally released.How long did this take? It would appear that the Obama WH has a faster turnaround on making opposition political ads in reaction to the GOP than they do getting ahead of this foreign policy nightmare and death of our US embassy workers.
I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America’s commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives.
I have directed my Administration to provide all necessary resources to support the security of our personnel in Libya, and to increase security at our diplomatic posts around the globe. While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants. [...]
I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. As we work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in this attack.
This evening, I called Libyan President Magariaf to coordinate additional support to protect Americans in Libya. President Magariaf expressed his condemnation and condolences and pledged his government’s full cooperation.
Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.
In light of the events of today, the United States government is working with partner countries around the world to protect our personnel, our missions, and American citizens worldwide.
