Kerry calls for restraint in criticisms of Libya attack response

“I am deeply disturbed by efforts to find politics instead of finding facts in this debate,” Kerry said in a statement late Friday, urging his colleagues to “take a deep breath” about the attack that killed four American diplomats as the official State Department investigation gets underway.
