( 4UMF NEWS ) Warships Headed To Libya:
The ruthless attack that killed four American diplomats in Libya appears to be a carefully planned terror strike rather than an uprising of a mob angry over a film that lampooned the Prophet Muhammed.
President Obama vowed Wednesday to bring those responsible to justice — and moved swiftly to hunt down the killers.
“Make no mistake,” Obama said. “Justice will be done.”
Two American warships were headed to the Libyan coast in a precautionary move. The U.S. launched a wave of unmanned drones to patrol the skies over eastern Libya to search for terror camps, while an elite team of Marines is also being deployed to the region to safeguard Americans.
“The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack,” Obama said from the Rose Garden, joined by Secretary of State Clinton.
“Since our founding, the U.S. is a nation that respects all faiths,” the President added. “There is no justification of this type of senseless violence. None.”
Libyan allies try in vain to save unconscious Ambassador Chris Stevens, victim of fiery attack believed to be terrorist plot.
Ambassador Chris Stevens, who spent years working to help stabilize Libya, and three colleagues died when the U.S. Consulate came under siege by a band of heavily armed militants.
Uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia were sparked by the inflammatory anti-Muslim video, and there was further unrest Thursday outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, where protesters had scaled the walls Tuesday. Riot police fired warning shots and tear gas to keep hundreds of demonstrators away.
