President Condemns Murders, Refuses To Call It Act of War!
President Barack Obama took no questions at the White House Rose Garden press conference on the attacks in Libya, turning his back and walking away as a reporter asked, "Is this an act of war?"
"The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. We're working with the government of Libya to secure our diplomats. I've also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world," Obama said, flanked by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
"And make no mistake - we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people," he said.
U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, and three other Americans were killed in attacks Tuesday in Benghazi.
