>> "GREGORY: “Was it inappropriate for him to go to a fundraiser the day after this attack now in retrospect knowing that it was a terrorist attack, inappropriate for him to engage in politics as usual?”

DAVID PLOUFFE: “No. The president obviously is 24/7 engaged in the job of the presidency. He has spent an enormous amount of time in these weeks, by the way, in the aftermath of this terrible tragedy. So absolutely not. A president is on call 24/7, and that just comes with the job.”

GREGORY: “24/7, but apparently not during U.N. meetings..."

I [Guy Benson- author of article] do take slight issue with Gregory's characterization of the Benghazi raid being revealed as a terrorist attack "in retrospect." That may be accurate from the public's perspective, but it's not so for the White House. It took investigative media reporting to debunk the administration's persistent lies and misdirection on what really happened -- and the US government knew the massacre was an act of terrorism on "day one." On the first day after a sitting US Ambassador was assassinated in a terrorist attack on 9/11, this president skipped his daily intelligence briefing in favor of attending a Las Vegas campaign stop. <<
