    one of my facebook friends posted this:

    So since we didn't get a straight answer last night, I thought I'd do my own research:

    Here are the words used to describe the Libya terrorist attack:
    "senseless violence"
    "attackers"
    "outrageous and shocking attack"
    "killers who attacked our people"
    "brutal acts"
    "attack in Benghazi"
    "terrible act"

    The President said this while talking about the attack, clearly showing they thought this was about some YouTube video:
    "Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of all others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence."

    Later, he is looking back on the remembrance of 9/11 a day earlier when he says "no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values we stand for."

    Watch the video for yourself. Make your own conclusion. This video is from the official White House YouTube account, so it has not been doctored in any way.

    of course he makes a weak attempt at coming off as neutral from the beginning by saying NEITHER answered questions. but i know him, he's right wing.

    my response (pretty straight forward i think):

    after referring to 9/11/01 he went back"then last night we learned the news of this new attack in Benghazi" before calling Benghazi an act of terror. then he says "we mourn 4 americans...". I understand that you want him to have not said that, but it's reaching.
    i'll ignore any responses from him. replying would simply get into a heated debate, i don't think i wanna do that
