Senator Rob Portman says the attacks in Libya and Egypt are heartbreaking reminders that we live in a very dangerous world and need to remain vigilant. During a conference call with reporters today, Portman said those responsible should be pursued.
"We need to go after the perpetrators and hold them responsible. The government of Egypt and the government of Libya need to ensure that these folks are held acountable," said Portman. "They also need to do a better job of protecting American soil, just as we protect their embassies in the United States."
