Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Scott Tipton (R-CO) issued the following statement regarding the recent tragic events in Benghazi, Libya.

“Last night we witnessed the true cost of freedom when Ambassador Stevens and three members of the U.S. embassy staff in Libya were murdered by a mob in the streets of Benghazi. I'm deeply saddened by this loss and pray that the families of these brave Americans find strength in the challenging days ahead. We must not yield in the face of these terrorist acts, but strengthen our resolve to defend our nation’s constitutional rights. America is the beacon of hope for the oppressed and an inspiration for all who long for freedom. The senseless and tragic attack last night and other similar acts of hatred will never change that.”
