Mitt Romney on Wednesday slammed the Obama administration for its response to violent protests in Libya and Egypt, which resulted in the death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens. Romney said the U.S. embassy in Cairo had made an "apology for U.S. values" by condemning anti-Muslim rhetoric, instead of expressing outrage at the assaults. "I think President Obama has demonstrated a lack of clarity in his foreign policy," Romney said. However, the embassy's statement was issued long before Stevens was killed, which has led to criticism that Romney is using Stevens' death for political gain. Obama made his own remarks about Stevens' death shortly after Romney spoke, in which he condemned the "outrageous" attack and promised that "justice will be done."
