Yes Obama did mention "acts of terror" in the Rose garden the day after the Americans were killed in Benghazi. He mentioned it in general terms. He did not say "the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi was an act of terror."Romney Gets Lost In Fox News Benghazi Bubble
Debate moderator Candy Crowley pointed out what other journalists did last night, that Obama mentioned "acts of terror" while addressing the Benghazi attack in the Rose Garden on September 12, the day after Americans were killed in Libya.
And for the record, the next day Obama said the same thing: "I want people around the world to hear me: To all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished.
So how could the Republican candidate be so misinformed about what Obama had said about the attack on Americans? And why did Romney cling to the false claim that the president had refused to call it an act of terror?
Short answer: Fox News.
As Erik Wemple at the Washington Post noted, in a deeply ironic twist it appears Romney was a victim of conservative misinformation on the topic of Benghazi. "Romney revealed that perhaps he'd spent some time inside a coverage bubble on the Benghazi story," Wemple wrote. "In the words of one onlooker, he "[c]onfused conservative spin for the truth."
What he did say specifically about this incident was that it was a spontaneous responce to a you tube video.He mentioned this at the United Nations while apologizing to the world for this event. This same speech denied US government involvement in the creation of the video, but he did mention we have freedom of speech in our country which is why this person could make this video.
The fact is the person who produced that video has been in jail for a "parole violation" since this event occured. I guess one can infer that making an anti islam video is a "parole violation" now.
This administration seems to be trouncing on citizens rights.
