President Obama spoke this morning about the events in Libya that left the US Ambassador to Libya dead along with three other Americans.

Obama is condemning in the "strongest possible terms" the attack on the U.S. consulate.

Obama on Wednesday said the U.S. will work with the Libyan government to bring the perpetrators of the attack to justice. He says "no acts of terror" will shake America's resolve.
