After the attack in Libya that killed four Americans including Chris Stevens, US Ambassador to Libya, President Obama said that the U.S. is now working with other nations to protect our diplomats.
According to the Detroit Free Press, he said in his weekly radio address:
"We are in contact with governments around the globe, to strengthen our cooperation, and underscore that every nation has a responsibility to help us protect our people."
Along with working to protect the diplomats, Obama has vowed to do his best to find those involved in the attack.
He proclaims that the U.S. must "send a clear and resolute message to the world: those who attack our people will find no escape from justice. We will not waver in their pursuit."
Of the victims the President says:
"They died as they lived their lives -- defending their fellow Americans, and advancing the values that all of us hold dear."
While there has been much speculation over the attack and the reasoning for it, Obama clarifies some points, stating:
"I have made it clear that the United States has a profound respect for people of all faiths. We stand for religious freedom. And we reject the denigration of any religion -- including Islam. There is no religion that condones the targeting of innocent men and women. There is no excuse for attacks on our Embassies and Consulates."
President Obama is clearly focused on finding resolutions to the conflict with Libya.
Our prayers and condolences are with those that lost their lives.
