Congressman Mike Turner, Chairman of the U.S. Delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, released the following statement today on the attacks on American Foreign Officers in Libya, which resulted in the death of our Ambassador and three other personnel:

“Today’s attack on our fellow Americans selflessly serving their nation is a stark reminder that there are forces at work around the world who seek to stifle liberty and spread extremism. My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Ambassador Stevens and those of his colleagues who were cowardly attacked. In this difficult time we must remain vigilant and stand firm in our resolve to continue fighting for freedom.”
