JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Wednesday stood by his criticism of the Obama administration for its initial response to attacks against US diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt, calling the White House's reaction disgraceful.

Romney has drawn criticism for a statement his campaign issued on Tuesday night attacking the US Embassy in Cairo for releasing a statement that the Republican said was an apology for US values.

The embassy had condemned a film about the Prophet Mohammad that angered protesters in Libya and Egypt who stormed the US missions there. The US ambassador to Libya and three embassy staff were killed in Benghazi.

Romney said his campaign was right to criticize the embassy statement, which he said was evidence of the White House apologizing for American values of free speech.
