Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) issued the following statement today:
"I am outraged and saddened by the deplorable attack waged by a violent mob against the American diplomatic embassy in Libya on the evening of September 11th.
"My prayers are with the families of those we lost yesterday in Benghazi, including that of our Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. Today, the nation certainly mourns with them.
"The United States government cannot tolerate violence against our diplomats, and we must take appropriate action to secure our interests and our citizens whenever and wherever they are threatened throughout the world."
