President Obama appears in the Rose Garden.
His statement, in part, says:
“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 does not mention the video, nor say specifically that the Benghazi attack was a terror attack.

At 6pm President Obama’s made the following remarks at a campaign event in Las Vegas, Nevada:
As for the ones we lost last night: I want to assure you, we will bring their killers to justice. (Applause.) And we want to send a message all around the world — anybody who would do us harm: No act of terror will dim the light of the values that we proudly shine on the rest of the world, and no act of violence will shake the resolve of the United States of America.1
