Skip to comments.Bret Baier: What President Obama really said in that '60 Minutes' interview about Benghazi
Posted on 11/05/2012 5:27:00 AM PST by maggief
ANALYSIS: Two days before the election, CBS posted additional portions of a Sept. 12 "60 Minutes" interview where President Obama seems to contradict himself on the Benghazi attack. As the Benghazi investigation gets more attention and focus, CBS is once again adding to the Benghazi timeline.
In the interview, according to the latest portions, Obama would not say whether he thought the attack was terrorism. Yet he would later emphasize at a presidential debate that in the Rose Garden the same day, he had declared the attack an act of terror.
That moment was one of the most intense exchanges in the second presidential debate. Romney was on the offensive on what conservatives believed was a serious vulnerability of Obama -- the handling of the Benghazi attack and what he called it from the beginning.
The town hall questioner asked, "Who was it that denied enhanced security and why?"
Obama did not provide a direct answer, but said: "When I say that we are going to find out exactly what happened, everybody will be held accountable, and I am ultimately responsible for what's taking place there, because these are my folks, and I'm the one who has to greet those coffins when they come home, you know that I mean what I say."

The 3:00 AM phone call came and Barry put them on hold.
Obama said, “I’m too busy campaigning: call Hillary Clinton instead.”
Silver lining in a RR win will be keep the Bengazi Debacle from being swept under the rug which is zacly what will happen should the POS-POTUS be reelected.
This president has failed US in too many ways
Cold and unfeeling, Barry let them die in the desert in billowing clouds of black smoke and the crackle of gunfire .
Bret Baier’s analysis.
Love the last line of the article. At least Fox is not going to give up on this, and actually do work that journalists, not cheerleaders, do.
Wow, obama painting Chris Stevens as a freedom fighter for libyan democracy - the cover story made deeper. Now we know that Stevens was nothing more than the administration’s libyan gun runner.
***because these are my folks,***
This is how he always refers to American citizens!!
Those folks or “MY” folks.
Surprising that he has not slipped up and called us “y’all fools”.
The hospital was SURROUNDED by Al Qaeda __for HOURS. That sounds like they wanted him very badly. Again, this goes back to the cazy, “botched prisoner swap” theory...
Obama Calls Benghazi Al-Qaeda Linked Terrorists: Those Folks
“My biggest priority right now is bringing those folks to justice.”
Thank you Brett. If Obama were a republican, you’d have won a pulitzer by now.
Do the math, connect the dots...isn't it obvious by now he's playing for the other team?
Who is he? He got the job with falsified paperwork and then sealed all his personal data and went to work running up a multi-Trillion dollar tab on our credit card.
To have let this game be run on us, in spite of our education, technology and easy access to information, we must be the Stupidest Generation.
Now, we get to find out if we are smart enough to learn from our mistakes.
I watched the segment on Fox Friends this morning.
Count the “I”s....Az!!!!!
He only thinks about himself!
Bob Schieffer, moderator of the third debate and anchor at CBS for 23 years, didn’t know these facts? That seems hard to believe.
Romney made a huge tactical error in not questioning Obama about the obvious lies that were told by him and his cohorts concerning Benghazi.
Maybe it was to be another setup.
“Get the transcript, Bob.”
Romney made a huge tactical error in not questioning Obama about the obvious lies that were told by him and his cohorts concerning Benghazi””
It may be that since Romney has been getting intel briefs from CIA and NSC, he may have been informed that a bi partisan gun running op was in effect and in all cases, al Qaeda and its affiliates were the primary benefactors.
Seems that only information that was equally damaging to republicans like McCain and Graham as it would be to Bronco would keep Romney from being on this issue.
Romney! why the silence?
