[O]bama was also asked by Stewart about “confusion” surrounding the Benghazi attack.
The president said his administration wasn’t “confused about the fact that four Americans had been killed” in the assault.
“I wasn’t confused about the fact that we needed to ramp up diplomatic security around the world right after it happened,” Obama said.
“I wasn’t confused about the fact that we had to investigate exactly what happened so it gets fixed. And I wasn’t confused about the fact that we’re going to hunt down whoever did it.”
During the wide-ranging interview with Stewart, the president also touted other actions of his administration. Obama said his biggest accomplishments included bailing out the auto industry, ending the war in Iraq, and passing healthcare reform legislation. Obama said he had a “strong story to tell” in making his case for reelection.
If elected to a second term, Obama said he would like to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay. He had vowed prior to his election in 2008 to close the terrorist detention facility.
“I still want to close Guantánamo. We haven’t been able to get that through Congress,” Obama said.
