Fox Mischaracterizes Obama's Answer On Benghazi; Makes It Seem He Was Joking About 4 Dead Americans

This is unbelievable desperation! One of the headlines on FoxNation.com was "Obama Cracks Joke About Terrorist Attack". I just had to see what they were taking out of context this time. This is the transcript they have posted in the article, making it appear this is the first thing the President said right after Steve Croft asked about Benghazi...

PRESIDENT: You know, I remember Bob Gates, you know, first thing he said to me, I think maybe first week or two that I was there and we were meeting in the Oval Office and he, obviously, been through seven presidents or something. And he says, "Mr. President, one thing I can guarantee you is that at this moment, somewhere, somehow, somebody in the federal government is screwing up." (Laughter)

What the folks at Fox conveniently left out of their website was what the President said about the incident, PRIOR to the above quote, which can be found in this video, where he talks about the importance of making sure, as President, the right strategy is taken and how it is a strategy of constant improvement.

The President's part starts at 3:02
