Though he has so far declined to use the word, the White House confirmed that President Obama does believe the attack against four Americans in Libya was an act of terrorism.

"It is the president's view that it was a terrorist attack," White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters en route to Ohio on Wednesday.

The attacks cost four American diplomats their lives, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. The initial administration position was that they were sparked by an anti-Islam video uploaded onto YouTube and disseminated across the Middle East.
