Obama and CNN's Crowley Lie About The Benghazi Terrorist Attack During Debate

Obama did not win, as many liberals would like to believe- he was smug, aggressive, mean spirited, and more importantly he flat out lied about Libya and the Benghazi terrorist attack, with the backing of CNN moderator Candy Crowley. Crowley, who showed very obvious favoritism by allowing Obama to interrupt Romney on numerous occasions, and to have more time- 4 minutes, to be exact- told the audience that Obama did indeed call it a terrorist attack in his Rose Garden speech.  Lies!!

See for yourself.  The "Benghazi" Rose Garden statement is on the White House website, but I wonder how long it will remain.
Statement by the President on the Attack in Benghazi
I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America's commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives.
I have directed my Administration to provide all necessary resources to support the security of our personnel in Libya, and to increase security at our diplomatic posts around the globe. While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants.
On a personal note, Chris was a courageous and exemplary representative of the United States. Throughout the Libyan revolution, he selflessly served our country and the Libyan people at our mission in Benghazi. As Ambassador in Tripoli, he has supported Libya's transition to democracy. His legacy will endure wherever human beings reach for liberty and justice. I am profoundly grateful for his service to my Administration, and deeply saddened by this loss.
The brave Americans we lost represent the extraordinary service and sacrifices that our civilians make every day around the globe. As we stand united with their families, let us now redouble our own efforts to carry their work forward.
Where is there mention of it being a "terrorist" attack? I see the word "attack" but not "terrorist", and in the second paragraph Obama tells us that  the U.S. "rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others", an obvious reference to the anti-Islam film "Innocence of Muslims."  At that point in time they were trying to make us believe that it was a spontaneous response to the movie.  It took them a very long time before they even acknowledged that it was a terrorist attack.

Lies. Lies. Lies.  Wake up America.

In the video, while talking about 9/11 he does mention "no acts of terror", but it he was definitely not referring to the four killed in Libya.


And here Crowley confesses she messed up. Conveniently, the damage has already been done.

This is not the entire statement and he did use the words acts of terror. If we are going to point out lies, why not point out the number of them told by Mitt and Paul.

Who said it was. And this was what was on the White House website. They did not publish the whole transcript, which is why I added the video. yes, he Did mention "acts of terror", as I conceded, but only after mention of 9/11. Whenever he referred to the actual attack in Libya, it was never prefaced by "terrorist". it is so obviously referring to what they initially wanted us to believe was a spontaneous reaction to the anti-Islam movie. Crowley even admits Romney was right, but you are welcome to bury your head in the sand.
