"The American ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were killed when a mob of protesters and gunmen overwhelmed the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, setting fire to it in outrage over a film that ridicules Islam's Prophet Muhammad.

Romney's attempt to turn this into a political football is beyond disgusting. As is the film that instigated this, and the religious fanatics who did the crime itself.
