Representative James Lankford (R-OK) issued the following statement after the senseless murder of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

"The heinous murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans inside our consulate in Libya last night was an attack on America and our American value of liberty. This senseless assault on freedom demonstrates a complete lack of respect for our values and signifies that the terrorists responsible want us to capitulate to their aggressive demands. We grieve with all of the families affected, and we owe them a unified requirement for justice on the perpetrators of this attack."
