CNN's Candy Crowley on moderating second presidential debate
O'BRIEN: Very, very interesting, I though. You told everybody at the beginning there's no clapping, turn off your BlackBerrys, turn off your cell phones. There was a moment when people clapped. Actually sort of two moments under the same question, which is about Libya. They were just talking about it, Wolf and Anderson, just a moment ago. And it was when the president said that he stood in the Rose Garden and said this was an act of terror, and the actually quote that he said on that day, the day after the act was, "no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation," and went on from there.=========================================================================
In a way you had to fact-check on both sides.
CROWLEY: Right. Well, I knew that the president has said act of terror, because this has kind of come up before, and also I heard him that day. And what Mitt Romney was going for, and I think where he tripped himself up was that he picked that one wrong fact. The president did call it or refer to it in some ways an act of terror, and so it felt as though - and the president kept looking at me going, you know, and I thought, well, I did know then, I said, you know, he did call it an act of terror. That's what caused the applause.
O'BRIEN: But then this side over here –
CROWLEY: Right. On this side over here, which is clearly the –
O'BRIEN: Then you fact-checked again.
CROWLEY: And then I said, but you are correct that they didn't know for a couple of weeks that it wasn't related to the tape and there was no riot outside the consulate, so - and that side of the room clapped.
Did Barack Obama call it an 'act of terror' ? No. he called it an attack and 9/11 an act of terror. The Media uses any words but 'act of terror' in the same segment in regards to his statement. The MSM immediately pushed the youtube video protest MEME from the 'disavowed' Embassy Statement. The LEFTISTS are rewriting history in real-time to cover for the Obama Administration.=========================================================================

Remarks by the President on the Deaths of U.S. Embassy Staff in LibyaRose Garden10:43 A.M. EDT
Along with his colleagues, Chris died in a country that is still striving to emerge from the recent experience of war. Today, the loss of these four Americans is fresh, but our memories of them linger on. I have no doubt that their legacy will live on through the work that they did far from our shores and in the hearts of those who love them back home.====================================================================
Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks. We mourned with the families who were lost on that day. I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed. And then last night, we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.
As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.
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.
But we also know that the lives these Americans led stand in stark contrast to those of their attackers. These four Americans stood up for freedom and human dignity. They should give every American great pride in the country that they served, and the hope that our flag represents to people around the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity.
We grieve with their families, but let us carry on their memory, and let us continue their work of seeking a stronger America and a better world for all of our children.
Thank you. May God bless the memory of those we lost and may God bless the United States of America.

The 10/16/2012 Debate- Candy Crowley in the Tank for Obama
Group says Obama’s Benghazi claim contradicted by Carney
The 'objective' moderator and the MSM failed the debates at many levels, just like Obama. Maybe that fact won't be lost to the viewers of the debate this time. Then it will be more than a victory for Mitt Romney, it will be a victory for TRUTH.
No, Obama Didn’t Call Benghazi “Act of Terror” in Speech
