President Obama will deliver a statement this morning in the Rose Garden on the killing of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americas at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
Secretary of State Clinton will also be on hand for the remarks, which are scheduled to begin at 10:35 am ET.
Obama earlier today issued a written statement condemning the violence and expressing sadness over the death of Stevens. Obama wrote:
I have directed my Administration to provide all necessary resources to support the security of our personnel in Libya, and to increase security at our diplomatic posts around the globe. While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants.
He called Stevens “a courageous and exemplary representative of the United States.”

The president is scheduled to fly later today to Las Vegas, where he will attend a campaign event.
