President Obama again on Friday defended his administration's handling of the attack that killed four Americans in Libya, and said he's not holding back information ahead of Election Day.
"The election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened," Obama said in an interview with KUSA, the NBC affiliate in Denver.
...Pressed twice during the KUSA interview, Obama wouldn't address a Friday report suggesting that the Americans in Benghazi asked for more assistance as the Sept. 11 attack was taking place, and instead stressed that his administration is engaged in a thorough investigation.
I think we can surmise why the president wouldn't answer the question. Several reliable sources told me (since confirmed here) that the President would have been alerted within minutes of the attack commencing in Benghazi. Therefore, his refusal to answer the question speaks volumes.
As an aside: is it just me, or does the president look like he's been doing some choom? Or is it that he just saw some of the internal polls from the battleground states?
