CBS Releases Previously Unaired Obama Footage About Benghazi

Nov 5 2012, 5:27pm CST | by

He refused to call it terrorism

With controversy still swirling about Barack Obama's administration's handling of the terrorist attack against the US consulate in Libya, CBS News thought that just a day before the election would be the right time to release footage from Obama's 60 Minutes interview after the terrible attack.

For whatever reason, the network originally decided to not air the president's response to questions that directly asked him whether or not it was a terrorist attack. In the recently released clip, though, it is clear that he was unwilling to use that word.

When asked if it was a terrorist attack, Obama dodged the question and said, "Well it’s too early to tell exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other."

Despite vehemently saying the attacks were random and related to a video that an American posted on YouTube, Obama remained pretty neutral on the whole issue during the interview.

Since that 60 Minutes interview, it was revealed that Obama's administration was told within minutes of the attack that it was an act of terrorism.

This issue isn't expected to have any sort of significant impact on the election, though. It is all about the economy and whatever the last-minute appeals each side make.

Rand Paul: Obama 'Can't Just Do What He Wants. He Is Not a King'

Aug 27 2014 7:17pm CDT | Source: Big Government

On Wednesday’s “On the Record” on the Fox News Channel, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) excoriated President Barack Obama for his reported “end-around” of Congress to enact climate change policy. Paul said the act would exceed just an abuse power, but would amount to constitutional crisis. “Not only is it an abuse of power, I think it almost leads us to a constitutional crisis of sorts,” Paul said. “It’s one thing after another. You know, he says he has no choice but to act. He says he has a pen and a p ...

Monkey Cage: Explaining the Arab uprisings

Aug 19 2014 2:16pm CDT | Source: Post Politics: - The Washington Post

The delirious early days of the Arab uprisings seem like a distant memory today. The failed promise of the Egyptian revolution, Libya’s utter collapse, the savage sectarian repression of Bahrain’s demonstrations, and above all Syria’s horrors have long since diverted attention from the possibility of meaningful change through popular mobilization. It has become fashionable to dismiss the significance of those uprisings altogether, give ...

Will Obama vindicate Bush on Iraq?

Aug 14 2014 6:20pm CDT | Source: WND

I am constantly amazed at the tendency of some to use the perspective of hindsight to condemn decisions of those who did not possess the supernatural gift of predictive prophecy at the time they made their decisions. So when a friend asked whether I believe that those who supported George W. Bush’s decision to attack Iraq should feel remorse, considering the chaos and genocide occurring there now, I said “no,” with some qualifications. ...
