Libyans are upset over Tuesday night's attacks, too. In Benghazi there was a pro-American rally to honor the memory of Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador killed in the attacks, and to apologize for the heinous actions of a few.

On "CBS This Morning," correspondent Charlie D'Agata said that "When you talk to Libyans here you hear the same thing: Everybody is heartbroken. They're saddened, they're shocked by what's happened. They say that they're ashamed of what's happened. They say the ambassador is a personal friend to the Libyans."
