SEPT. 14, 2012— -- Sunday on "This Week," U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice speaks to ABC News senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper on the deadly attacks and anti-American protests sweeping across the Middle East.
After four Americans were killed Tuesday, including U.S. ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, in an assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, questions remain about what sparked the violence – a controversial anti-Islamic film, or a planned attack by Al Qaeda militants? As American embassies throughout the region remain under fire, did the U.S. do enough to prevent attacks in Libya, Egypt, and Yemen? How will the ongoing protests and violence across the region impact U.S. relations and standing in the Middle East?
