On Killing of American Personnel in Libya

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy responds to the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Lybia.

The tragic and heartbreaking killing of our ambassador and other American officials in Libya is an attack on all Americans and the values that we hold dear as we work to defend and promote freedom around the globe.

Today we as a nation should be united in mourning the loss of our fellow Americans and stand resolved in making sure that justice is delivered for these heinous acts.

We should also stand united in saluting our diplomatic corps – thousands of Americans around the globe representing our nation in sometimes very dangerous places.

They are patriots who have put themselves in harm's way out of a sense of duty and love for country and I salute them.

The attacks on our consulate and embassy in Benghazi and Cairo in the last 24 hours show just how fragile and hostile much of the Middle East region continues to be to the United States and how vigilant our intelligence, diplomatic and military personnel will have to be to continue to protect Americans and our allies in the region.

So sad our leaders feel the need to do anything for these people....The Muslim religion and the countries where the people reside do not believe in religious freedom, women rights are horrible and our leaders tell the general dumb public accept this culture and religion???? Anyone sticking up for these people might as well support the belief that women should not have equal rights and that the tolerance of other religions is accepted.....These people are so far behind in time its seriously not funny, its dangerous....People need to stop being so passive, this is your enemy and they want to kill U
