“Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior, along with the protest that took place at our embassy in Cairo yesterday, as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” Clinton said. “America's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me clear: There is no justification for this. None.”
The violence, which claimed the lives of four Americans including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, is believed to have been sparked by an anti-Islam video posted to YouTube.
