WASHINGTON - In the wake of an attack in Libya that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, Sen. Jim Inhofe said Wednesday that the United States had suffered because of President Barack Obama's "failed foreign policy of appeasement and apology."
Inhofe, R-Okla., called on the Defense and Foreign Relations committees to hold hearings on the attack.
"We mourn the tragic murder of (U.S. Ambassador to Libya) John Christopher Stevens, a friend whom I met with in February of this year, and the three others," Inhofe said. "These individuals lost their lives in service to their country, and Ambassador Stevens was a brave American who was acting to protect his fellow citizens.
"These attacks, the murder of our ambassador, and the disgraceful treatment of his body must have consequences. The timing of this on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11 is more than just coincidence. Sadly, America has suffered as a result of President Obama's failure to lead and his failed foreign policy of appeasement and apology. The world must know beyond doubt that America will not allow these types of attacks on our people."
