Debate number two- Obama tips hand over Benghazi (many updates-Jim Geraghty Nails Obama! )

People are focusing on the fact that Crowley backed up Obama’s claim that he called the incident a terror attack on 9/12.

The real point is the absurdity of the president making the claim at all, or even wanting to when for a fortnight they insisted the incident was spontaneous.

Update 2

Jim Geraghty Nails it:
“Obama refers to the murder of Stevens and the other Americans as an “attack” – duh – but then he says:

Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths.  We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.  But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence.  None.

Those lines clearly imply that the events were a reaction to the YouTube tape.”

Crowley to Axelrod: Obama Never Said Benghazi Attack Was ‘Act of Terror’ (on 9/30)

“CROWLEY: … There’s a back and forth now about why didn’t this administration — why did it take them until Friday after a September 11th attack in Libya to come to the conclusion that it was premeditated and that there was terrorists involved. John McCain said it doesn’t pass the smell test, or it’s willful ignorance to think that they didn’t know before this what was going on. Your reaction? ”
