FAIRFAX, Va. - Republican US presidential candidate Mitt Romney criticized President Barack Obama's handling of foreign policy on Thursday after four Americans were killed in Libya, saying the United States seems at the mercy of world events.

Romney made a case for a stronger US military at a campaign rally in Northern Virginia, an area that could play a deciding role in who wins the Nov. 6 presidential election.

The former Massachusetts governor stopped short of repeating charges that Obama was apologizing to America's enemies, but made clear he had not changed his mind about it after getting heat for his views from Democrats and some fellow Republicans.

"As we watch the world today, sometimes it seems that we're at the mercy of events, instead of shaping events," he said in Fairfax, a suburb of Washington.
