    I'm not a member of the GOP, and I'm not a bit interested in making political hay. But I have wanted to know since the beginning what happened and why. And in case the reason you used "four people" is because you don't know all four names, those who died were Abassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glenn Doherty, and Ty Woods.

    Don't delude yourself that only Republicans wishing to make political hay care about Benghazi.

    No he didn't. In fact, after the instance you are mistakenly alluding too, he confirmed in an interview that he did not call it terrorism. As I have already illustrated in this very thread.

    That is the definition of passing the buck.

    And they ran like hell from the word "terrorism" early on.
    He called it an act of terror. He used those words, standing in the rose garden, on Sept 12.

    Of course the context was vague, having said in in the third to last paragraph of his prepared statment, which contained over 800 words.

    Add in the narative that played out afterwords, and I think it's a bit of a reach to claim President Obama at the time stated Stevens and others were killed by terrorists.

    And two hours later confirmed in a 60 minutes interview that he did not call Benghazi a terrorist attack. Watch the interview instead of repeating a lie he later told in a Presidential debate.

    "KROFT: “Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word ‘terrorism’ in connection with the Libya attack.”
    OBAMA: “Right.”
    KROFT: “Do you believe that this was a terrorist attack?”
    OBAMA: “Well, it’s too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.” "

    Every time when the words responsibility and accountability are being used.

    I don't see where the president denies that it was a terrorist attack

    He agrees that he didn't use the word terrorism (which is not a denial that it was terrorism), and then he goes on to explain that we didn't "know exactly how this came about" which is also not a denial of terrorism

    He doesnt deny it, he also doesnt affirm it.
