 President Barack Obama, at a ceremony at Maryland’s Joint Base Andrews for the returned bodies of the four Americans killed at the Benghazi consulate, added:
“The United States of America will never retreat from the world. We will never stop working for the dignity and freedom that every (person) deserves. … That’s the essence of American leadership. … That was their work in Benghazi, and that is the work we will carry on.”
 At the beginning and toward the end of his remarks, Obama cited the Bible’s John 15:13: “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” Obama said the four killed Americans laid down their lives “in service to us all. “”Their sacrifice will never be forgotten.  Source:cnn.com
