Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement regarding the attacks on Americans in Libya:

“This morning’s act of unprovoked, horrific violence, resulting in the brutal death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, is senseless and will not be tolerated.  I condemn these attacks as my thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s families.  The Administration must do everything in its power on behalf of the American people to seek justice on those who perpetrated this act of terrorism.

“Ambassador Stevens and his brave colleagues worked tirelessly to help the Libyan people establish a democracy during a time of civil unrest.  Their efforts are appreciated by the American people and will never be forgotten.  With such instability occurring in Benghazi and Cairo, the United States must send a very clear message to the extreme insurgents who dwell on destroying our freedoms.  These terrible acts of violence will not suppress our mission of promoting democracy and peace.”
