Video: Rep.Peter King Attacks Pres. Obama for Waiting Four Minutes to Call Libya Attack an "Act of Terror"

| by Michael Allen

Appearing on CNN, last night, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) admitted that Pres. Obama referred to the Libya embassy attack as “an act of terror” on September 12 [contradicting Mitt Romney], but slammed the president for not saying those words until four minutes into his speech, reports ThinkProgress.org (video below).

Rep. King was also angry that President Obama didn't use the word "terrorism" and claimed the president confused people by possibly referring to the 9/11 attack eleven years earlier [which he was not].

King said: "I’m going to use my words very carefully. I think the president’s conduct and his behavior on this issue has been shameful. And, first of all, as far as it being an act of terror, the president was almost four minutes into his statement on September 12th before he mentioned an act of terror. It followed a paragraph in which he was talking after September 11th."

"When he, earlier in his statement, when he was talking about the attack in Benghazi, he didn’t say anything about terrorism at all nothing about an act of terror. It wasn’t until he was well into the remarks and anyone looking at it will be confuse, is he talking about Benghazi or is he talking about September 11th or all acts of terror?"
