Obama Promises Justice in Response to Attacks on Libyan Consulate

Says attacks will not break bonds with Libya


President Barack Obama is addressing the attacks on U.S. missions in Egypt and Libya, which have left four dead, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya.

"There is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence — none," Obama said from the Rose Garden at the White House.

Obama said that the attacks will "not break the bonds" between the United States and Libya. 

He called Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador who was killed in the protests, "a role model to all who worked with him and to the young diplomats who aspire to walk in his footsteps."
