ORANGEDALE, Fla. -- Joe Wagner retired from the U.S. Diplomatic Corp after 23 years. He is disturbed by the attacks on U.S. embassies.
"I think we need to seek them out and turn them over to the locals for justice," said Wagner.
Wagner, now a Florida State College at Jacksonville professor of international relations, has served in Northern Ireland and several other countries, and said the danger is always present.

"It is a dangerous job. There are 230 plus names on the wall of the state department of diplomats killed overseas doing their jobs," said Wagner.
Even so, he said, America cannot afford to close its embassies.
