Like Biden said, “facts matter.”
Via Beltway Confidential:
President Obama claimed during last night’s debate that he cried terrorism immediately after the Libya attack, but in doing so, he contradicted his own spokesman.
Nine days after the assault, a reporter asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney if they had called the Libya assault a terrorist attack.
“I haven’t,” Carney replied on September 20th. And he was speaking for the White House, not just himself, as was made clear when he cautioned reporters against thinking it was significant that “we hadn’t” called it a terrorist attack yet.
