Candy Crowley admits Romney was right during the debate re: Obama not calling Benghazi a ‘terrorist attack’ [VIDEO]

October 19, 2012, 7:49 pm


The truth is out there and the moderator of the second presidential debate, Candy Crowley, has grudgingly admitted that Mitt Romney was correct when he said President Obama did not call the Benghazi atrocity, in which a U.S. ambassador was raped, killed, and dragged through the streets, a “terrorist attack.” Her admission is shown is the video below. But let’s look at the facts, first:

BS: President Obama said during the debate that, “The day after the [Libya] attack, Governor, I stood in the Rose Garden, and I told the American people and the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened, that this was an act of terror.”

TRUTH: CBS obtained Obama’s Rose Garden transcript and conceded that, “It shows that the president did refer to ‘acts of terror’ — but not specifically in reference to the Libya attack. Instead, he made a broader statement about American defiance.” CBS also admitted, “The questions during Tuesday night’s town hall debate, which were chosen by Crowley, more often than not played into the president’s hands — perhaps reflecting the fact that the town hall was held in a blue state. And Crowley’s decision to side with the president over whether he had deemed the Libya attack an act of terror, when the reality was not so clear cut, was a misstep.” Even more damning, while Obama spent weeks concentrating on some silly, amateurish video “upsetting” Muslims and trying to spin the savage murder of our ambassador, we know that, “Recently obtained memos show Ambassador Chris Stevens asked the State Department repeatedly for more security in Libya before he was killed in the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi…”

    Yeah. The White House already tried a two-week cover up, and the election’s a few weeks a way.
