U.S. Ambassador to Libya Stevens remembered as respected diplomat eager to work with Libyan people

(CNN) - U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday strongly condemned the killing of the United States ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, in a rocket attack on the U.S. Consulate in the city of Benghazi on Tuesday. Stevens was the first U.S. ambassador to be killed in an attack since 1979.

This morning on "Early Start," CNN's Elise Labott shares stories of Stevens and describes how he was eager to work with Libyan people in his post as US Ambassador.

    I watched this show for 20 minutes during my workout this morning, and despite repeating the headline and the facts many times, not once did the announcers mention the on-line video that supposedly inspired the violence. In fact, the question posed to the former CIA guest (Brooks?) was whether this outbreak was related to 9/11. That's poor, guys.
