I -- -- -- reporting tonight from Boston thanks for watching us.
More Americans murdered by militant Muslims that is -- subject of this evening's talking points -- so right up about a defended the far left.
They don't want the facts reported about the Islamic Jihad.
They don't want to hear.
About the followers of outlaw who kill in the name of their religion.
Well that's tough.
My job -- to tell you the truth.
In Libya 52 year old Christopher -- American ambassador to that country was murdered last night along with three other American citizens.
Fox News has obtained information that those killings were apparently plan.
Not a spontaneous demonstration.
But in Egypt the situation was very different as hundreds of Muslims attacked the US embassy because some crank here in America put out an anti Muslim video.
Because of the Internet that kind of stuff goes worldwide very quickly and the video gave those knots in Cairo an excuse to turn violent.
To try to head that off the US embassy there issued a statement saying quote.
The embassy of the United States in Cairo -- -- -- continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.
As we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions on quote.
Again that statement was issued before.
The American Embassy was attacked last night.
Now -- talking points stated yesterday.
Muslim fanatics will use any excuse.
To attack not only Americans would anyone they considered to be an infidel.
There's no question about that and it is a responsibility of the Egyptian government.
To protect the American Embassy.
The Egyptian government did not do that so they must be held accountable.
Back here the issue is clearly being used in the presidential campaign.
Here's what Mitt Romney said about the US embassy statement.
They clearly sent mixed messages to the world.
And and the statement that came from the administration and the embassy is the administration the statement that came from him and administration.
Was was that a statement which is akin to apology and I think was say they I think severe miscalculation.
Now I'm not sure the governor is correct on that the embassy was trying to head off the violence being conciliatory.
And that kind of a situation.
But after the fact after the attack on the embassy I believe the USA should be much stronger than what President Obama said from the White House.
Today we mourn for more Americans who represent the very best.
The United States of America.
We will not waiver -- our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act and make no mistake.
Justice will be done.
But what kind of justice Mr.
President the Libyan government's chaotic there's no central party there and what will you do with the Egyptian government.
We're giving it one and a half billion dollars a year -- -- So our embassy can be attacked they couldn't stop it.
On February 62011.
I discuss the militant situation in Egypt with mr.
The Muslim Brotherhood great concern to a lot of people.
They a threat to the USA.
I think that the Muslim Brotherhood is one faction in Egypt they don't have majority support major.
They already but they are well organized and there are strains of their ideology.
But our anti US what I want is a representative government.
And I have confidence that if Egypt moves in an orderly transition process that will have a a government in Egypt that we can work with together as partners a tough.
-- the Muslim Brotherhood I would want him anywhere near that government.
Well I have to say this but I was right the president was wrong.
The Muslim Brotherhood dominates the Egyptian government right now and I'm actually sorry that -- from prognostication.
-- voice is fed up with Americans sympathize with the Muslim world there are far too many fanatics who persecute far too many people including their own.
Women are battered denied human rights in any dissent.
Can result in execution.
The Muslim governments themselves are responsible.
To control people like this.
Don't make our of people and angry because they went to eat they wouldn't quite do what you would protest at the -- -- these this situation because of that Americans except that they want to say something that I -- -- profit.
Going forward America should now suspend its aid to Egypt deduct the cost of the damage the American Embassy secure an apology from Cairo.
And let them know that attacks on Americans inside Egypt.
Simply will not be tolerated.
