"The killing of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three of his colleagues in Benghazi is a tragic reminder that representing the American way of life around the world can be a deadly endeavor."
"My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Ambassador Stevens and his colleagues who lost their lives in service to our country."
"The unrest and violence we have witnessed in Libya and Egypt, whether it be the result of a disrespectful depiction of Islam, or anger over the political process, none of it is worth the lives of four dedicated public servants who died while working to support and advance our interests abroad."
"Today we mourn Ambassador Stevens and his colleagues, but the United States will not allow the murder of innocent Americans to go unpunished. We will hunt down those responsible and remind them that America will not be cowed by violence."
