Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter released the following statement regarding the attacks on the US Embassy in Cairo, Egypt, and the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
"Recent attacks on the US diplomatic posts in Cairo and Benghazi are barbaric acts of violence against Americans who stood with Egyptians and Libyans to bring freedom to those nations. I stand by President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton in condemning these attacks in the strongest terms. I have complete confidence American resources will be fully engaged to bring the perpetrators to justice, as all Americans demand and expect. My heart goes out to the families of the victims. These men served the United States honorably and bravely and we will honor their memory and heroism."
