"This is an attack that should shock the conscience of people of all faiths around the world," Clinton said. "We condemn in the strongest terms this senseless act of violence and we send our prayers to the families friends and colleagues of those weve lost."
Clinton said that the four people who died represent the diplomats all over the world who risk their lives because "they believe the United States must be a force for peace and progress in the world."
"These aspirations are worth sacrificing and striving for," Clinton said.
Clinton said that she understand the attack in Libya was hard for most to fathom given the recent efforts by NATO in the area.
"Today many Americans are asking, indeed I asked myself, how could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?" Clinton said.

Holy ****in’ ****, Batman, them bastards is screwed now!
“The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Until my enemy is dead. Then, YOU are next.” Suckers.
Obama and his cohort of multi-culti frooty tutes are fail personified. The world is not like an American taxpayer funded college campus, but that is our elite, college deans and profs, fails.

barry’s bozos are trying to underplay the fact that an American Ambassador was killed in the line of duty by rabid Libyan citizens and the Libyan government let them do it.
Hammer them and do not relent! No quarter.
“risked his life to stop a dictator”
He lost his life because of the extremist mob we placed in control.
“risked his life to stop a dictator” when he was sent to Benghazi last year as the American envoy to the rebels working to topple Moammar Gadhafi, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday “
As they would say in Ghostbusters, he named his destructor.
It was entirely your policy, Hillary, that resulted in this mob controlling Benghazi. Own it.
As I recall, it was another President who said the U.S. wouldn’t support the Shah of Iran, and we know how that turned out.
Heh! Killed by the rebels he supported. How ironic...
Where did they get the rockets?
They got the rockets when we bombed Libya and the armories were
opened and looted.
What do these buttwads expect?
Reminds me of the scene in Animal House.
“Wait till Otis sees us, he loves us!”
"Oh shut up, silly woman...." said that reptile with a grin "You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in"♫
I'll bet they did. Carried him outside to mutilate his body, as the Libyan troops looked on.
