"***No acts of terror*** will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done" --Obama

Sigh. This quote was in context with the 9/11/20_01_ attack. Not the 9/11/20_12_ attack.

Good speechwriting, I have to admit - but you can only take it as a claim of his telling the truth by taking it out of context.

Of course, that is a specialty of Regressives.

no acts of terror comment doesn;t change the FACT he called it a demonstration over a youtube video that turned into an act of terror. IT was a straight terrorist attack, no demonstration that escalated ever happen. He lied, he got caught. You're parsing statements to lie yourself and you got caught.

sorry Tin....

However, while it is mentioned, it is so general and he never overtly called the attack (this word was used as attack, attacked or attackers, 9 times) and act of terror. He stated no acts of terror in an all inclusive sense so, using Obama logic, that's good enough.

Notice that is right after he was talking about the 2001 attack in the speech?

when referring to Bnghazi he said "We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None."
