REP. PETER WELCH (D-VT): You know, I actually think we have to start drawing some conclusions. I think everybody did their best and this Christopher Stevens, by the way, is a diplomat who prided himself on talking to the people, on getting out and getting around.
He knew there were risks associated with doing the job. A lot of our diplomats have a kind of bravery that many of our soldiers have. They know that there is some danger. And in fact, in order to do the job and not just be hunkered down in a bunker, there is going to be some risk. (The Cycle, May 8, 2013)
