    The only "terror" he talked about that day was 9-11-01... not what had happened the night before.

    He vowed to get to bottom of it, but no.. he didnt call it an act of terror.

    Sure he did and did so again in Co. the very next day.

    "So what I want all of you to know is that we are going to bring those who killed our fellow Americans to justice. I want people around the world to hear me: To all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished. It will not dim the light of the values that we proudly present to the rest of the world. No act of violence shakes the resolve of the United States of America," he said.

    Funny... I don't see the words 'The Benghazi attack was an' in front of 'act of terror'.

    Do you? (squints) Perhaps you could highlight those words for me???

    Doesn't explicitly say it was an act of terror, or that the video was the cause, but he implies it. Which is pretty much par for the course, he always couches his remarks in words and phrases that lead you to believe something that he never actually said directly.

    We did.

    The words 'The attack in Benghazi were an act of terror' do not appear.

    Typical republican double talk. He was talking about the Benghazi attacks in the speech just before he said "act of terror" and what followed those words was more on Benghazi. Yet when he mentions acts of terror, the Benghazi attacks are not what he was talking about. In mid sentence he decided to talk about something else for 2 words then go back to Benghazi. Classic. Just friggin classic. I believe he wasn't talking about Benghazi like I believe Romney's tax plan will work solely of the strength that he says it will. Facts? What facts?
