Libya becomes a major issue in the second presidential debate. It’s the first time Obama uses the exact phrase “terrorist attack.”
OBAMA: The day after the attack…I stood in the Rose Garden and I told the American people and the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened. That this was an act of terror and I also said that we’re going to hunt down those who committed this crime.
ROMNEY: I want to make sure we get that for the record, because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.”
Commentators attempt to fact check the President’s comments.
