Four people died in the attack on the American embassy in Libya. And while we still aren't clear on exactly who was behind the attack, or what the motivation was, U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn has taken this as an opportunity to criticize the president.

Cause what else would the partisan congressman from our 5th Congressional District do?

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed in Libya. This was an evil and unjustified act of violence. Like many Americans, I am concerned about the Obama Administration’s policy of leading from behind on world affairs. The American people deserve stronger leadership from the White House. We need an administration that will project strength even into troubled areas of the world.”

Nowhere in the press release does Lamborn give even a hint of what leading from the front on foreign affairs would look like.

On a less vulgar note, Buzzfeed found that the Libya Alhurra Livestream Facebook page has photos of Libyans expressing their solidarity with America.
