PRESIDENT OBAMA CONDEMNS ATTACK THAT KILLED U.S. AMBASSADOR IN LIBYA
In just minutes, President Obama will address the attack on a U.S. consulate in eastern Libya yesterday that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three American members of his staff. "I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi," Obama said in a statement. The four Americans, he said, "exemplified America's commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe." Stevens is the first U.S. ambassador to be killed in an attack since 1979. We're awaiting the names of the others killed in the attack. We'll be following developments and take the President's address live on Sunrise as soon as it happens.

Council will also consider doing away with a City subsidy aimed at encouraging private companies and non-profits to recycle.
