    Two US Marines also died trying to protect the ambassador. May they all Rest in Peace, Blue Skies my friends!

    Thanks James. I am so depressed. I met him twice and always wanted to work with him. He is my hero.

    Diplomatic skills are often confused with tacts and tactfullness because tact is one of the most important qualities of a diplomat. Ambassador Chris mastered the art of communicating with diplomatic, tact and confidence.

    I found it quite sad that the iPhone 5 got more coverage then this today. My prayers go out to their families, and I'm sorry you lost a friend Rip. Tell someone you love them everyday, you never know when.

    I caught this story yesterday and was wondering if you knew him. Thanks for letting us know what he was like. Saddened to hear about this Rip.

    Words are just inadequate. Such a senseless loss of some of our brightest and best. Be it known that this loss will not be in vain, because the work that these men were engaged in will not falter. This loss will only strengthen the will of the United States.

    Hopefully this sacrifice will open the eyes of those who created the film to the consequences of their actions.

    My condolences.
    I never know what to say in these types of things.
    Best wishes and prayers to the family and friends.

    Our Diplomats Deserve Better

    I hope both Republican and Democrat politicians read this article and realize that our diplomats do not serve any individual party. We serve our country as one nation- The United States of America. Freedom of expression is our right but Freedom should not be misused.

    Journalists are under too much pressure to "get it out quick", and consequently mistakes like this aregoing to be made. I want to know who is behind the film, who put up the money, who made the decision to keep the intent of the film secret from the "actors" (the offensive scenes were added after the crew was dismissed, and the actors thought they were making somethig completely different) and why it was released on the eve of our Presidential election.
