America asks its citizens to go to dangerous places and to do difficult things. These are people who were in the military who were in the clandestine services who were diplomats and they go willingly. And they go acknowledging that there is a risk. But the understanding that they carry with them is if they end up in harm's way, historically they have rest assured that their country will do everything it can do to rescue them.
And that didn't happen, and four people were murdered. If we are going to ask Americans to put themselves at risk in the future, we've got to remedy this, all of us. America needs to have a reputation with people who are serving America, that America will follow its end of the bargain.
And America, that is the bureaucrats in Washington, failed this miserably.
