FAIRFAX, Va., - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney criticized US 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.

But the former governor of Massachusetts stopped short of repeating charges that Obama is apologizing to America's enemies.

"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, DC.

Romney has come under fire from Democrats, pundits and some Republicans for criticizing the Obama administration's initial response to demonstrators at US diplomatic missions in Benghazi, Libya, and Cairo.
