Since our founding the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. Already many Libyans have joined us in doing so and this attack will not break the bonds between the United Sates and Libya. Libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside Americans. The Libyan’s helped some of our diplomats find safety and they carried Ambassador Stevens’ body to the hospital where we tragically learned he had died.
