Idaho Senator Mike Crapo says U-S security is being threatened by the ongoing attacks on American embassies in the Middle East and around the world. 

The Republican condemned the violence during a conference call with reporters this morning. “The attacks heighten and give emphasis to the fact that the United States must continue to maintain its defense posture and its intelligence system in a way that will help us to defend our national security interests abroad.”
