Obama On Daily Show: President Defends Libya Response To Jon Stewart
President Barack Obama rejected allegations of confusion within his administration following the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya while taping an appearance on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" Thursday, according to a White House pool report.
"We werent confused about the fact that four Americans had been killed," Obama told Stewart while discussing the attack, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. "I wasnt confused about the fact that we needed to ramp up diplomatic security around the world right after it happened."
"I wasnt confused about the fact that we had to investigate exactly what happened so it gets fixed," he continued. "And I wasnt confused about the fact that were going to hunt down whoever did it."
