In wake of the news that U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Foreign Services Officer Sean Smith and two other Americans were killed in Benghazi, U.S. Rep. Gary Peters issued the following statement:
"My thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of Ambassador Stevens and the three other Americans that were killed in this senseless and despicable act of violence. As we work to advance the cause of peace, tolerance and equality, it's heroic Americans like these that put their lives on the line every day to get the job done. Those that carried out this unprovoked attack on our fellow Americans must be brought to justice."
