DAYTONA BEACH -- Hours after the Egyptian mob’s 9/11 anniversary assault on our embassy in Cairo, a well-armed terrorist team attacked the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, setting the building afire and killing American Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other US diplomats.

In Cairo the assault was mounted by a large unarmed mob, possibly egged on by the Muslim Brotherhood or their Salafist Islamic rivals.
