U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady (R-Texas), released the following statement on the killings of American Embassy staff in Libya:
"The killings of four Americans, including our Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, is an assault on America. It confirms that extreme Islamists need little excuse -- merely a cartoon or a movie - to target, attack and kill American representatives serving the cause of freedom. Simply condemning the killings with mere words is not satisfactory, there needs to be consequences or we invite more of the same. I urge President Obama to explore all options promptly and prudently -- then act forcefully."
