JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says it's never too early for America to condemn attacks on its sovereignty and says the White House gave "mixed signals" in its response to the breach of the American embassy in Egypt.

Romney on Wednesday condemned attacks against the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four U.S. diplomats, including the U.S. ambassador.

Still, Romney stood by his sharp statement Tuesday night criticizing the Obama administration. On Wednesday he said that statement from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo was "akin to apology" and a "severe miscalculation."
