The question people wanted answered was obvious. Was it a preplanned terrorist attack, or was it a spontaneous mob act due to a video? The White House response was clear. They condemned the video over and over; making no reference to a preplanned attack. When it became clear it was a preplanned attack, the President; pathetically back peddled, trying to assert he had said it was a terrorist attack all along. I guess he meant a spontaneous terrorist attack by a mob incensed over a video. This was never about the semantics of whether the President uttered the word terror. It was about whether a terror cell preplanned the event. On this, the real question, we were mislead for two weeks.
President Obama gave a vigorous defense during this week's presidential debate of his handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya -- but his answer could come back to haunt him. The natural instinct of most Americans is to rally round the president when they feel the country is under attack. But if they believe that the president has tried to mislead them, that support will dissipate quickly. Monday night's presidential debate could be that turning point.
