Two U.S. warships are moving toward the coast of Libya after an anti-American attack Tuesday that killed U.S. Ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and three other diplomats.
The first warship should be there within days.
Officials say the ships will carry missiles, but don't have a specific mission.
Four other destroyers have already been in the Mediterranean Sea for some time.
Now, Muslim protesters have set fires near the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt continuing the wave of anti-American violence.
Wednesday's protests are said to be in response to the American-made film mocking Islam.
But the pentagon says Tuesday's attack on the Benghazi consulate seems too organized and it's looking into the possibility of a coordinated terrorist attack.
"I assure you we will bring their killers to justice," said President Obama.
In addition to two destroyers, at least 40 marines are being sent to Libya to protect the U.S. diplomatic stations.
The international story is not only playing out in Libya, but on the campaign trail.
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is slamming the Obama Administration, saying it is responding too lightly.
"The statement that came from the administration was a statement which is akin to apology and I think was a severe miscalculation," said Mitt Romney.
President Obama responded to CBS News '60 Minutes', saying Romney spoke before he heard the facts.
"Governor Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. And as President, one of the things I've learned is you can't do that," said President Obama.
U.S. officials say the Pentagon is moving two warships to the Libyan coast.
This, in the aftermath of the attack in Benghazi that killed the U.S. ambassador and three others.
Officials say one destroyer moved to a position off the coast Wednesday, and another is en route and should be stationed off the coast within days.
Officials say the ships, which carry missiles, do not have a specific mission.
But they are able to carry out any mission ordered by the President.
There have been four destroyers in the Mediterranean for some time.
