No, Obama didn’t acknowledge Benghazi was terrorism

Obama’s apologists have seized on the fact that Obama’s used the word “terror” in a speech on September 12 as proof that he acknowledged the truth from the beginning. This is nonsense, and moreover, if he did acknowledge the truth on September 12, why did he spend the next month lying to us?

Now CBS has released a video that answers the question conclusively. In an interview later that day, Steve Kroft observed that in Obama’s speech that morning, he “went out of [his] way to avoid the use of the word terrorism”, and asked Obama point-blank if the attack was terrorism. Obama wouldn’t answer:

QED.
