Obama on Benghazi: It's a Sideshow

Of course there are worse scandals out there, but Benghazi is one too


President Obama delivered a defiant defense Monday of his administration's response to the Benghazi terror attack, calling the revived controversy over the matter a "sideshow." 

The president addressed the issue during a press conference alongside British Prime Minister David Cameron, who is visiting Washington. Obama denied any suggestion that there was a cover-up, questioning recent reports that showed a State Department official trying to water down the administration's initial story-line on what happened the night of Sept. 11.

  5. In fairness, the president who has done nothing but campaign or vacation for his entire time in elected office would know a sideshow when he sees one.

    That’s not to say he’s telling the truth, however.
