 Nov 5 - Why Did CBS release new Obama tape, him refusing to call Attack terrorism

Do you recall when, during the second presidential debate, Mitt Romney called President Obama out on the fact that he did not refer to the deadly attack on our U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi that claimed four American lives an “act of terror” in a speech given from the White House Rose Garden the day following the attack? Moderator Candy Crowley quickly swooped in to aid Obama and “fact-check” Romney, declaring that the president did indeed use the term “act of terror” in the Rose Garden that fateful day as he referred to Benghazi, only to later backpedal and cede that the GOP contender was actually “right in the main.” Now, the full length portion of a “60 Minutes” interview conducted September 12, the day following the siege, has been released, revealing that the president refused to call Benghazi a terrorist attack.

TheBlaze previously posted the originally released 60 Minutes segment in which Obama appears to contradict himself when he suggests that the Benghazi attack could have been organized. However, that clip omitted the opening question by host Steve Croft, in which the CBS veteran asked Obama directly why he had, to then, refused to call the attack a terrorist attack.

For reference, during his September 12 speech at the White House Rose Garden, Obama did not call the attack in Benghazi an “act of terror” or a “terrorist attack” at all. He used the phrase “acts of terror” directly following remarks about the original September 11 attack on the World Trade Center in which he said that no “acts of terror” (in general) would be tolerated by America.

Many of the president’s inconsistencies and contradictory remarks regarding the carnage in Benghazi that claimed Ambassador Christopher Stevens, his aid Sean Smith and Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Dohery has since been buried by presidential politics and a mainstream media that appears eager to give the president what essentially amounts to a free pass. That may have changed, however, at least in some small way after this latest inconvenient truth has surfaced — and it’s one the president will likely wish had been relegated to CBS News’ cutting room floor.

The previously withheld segment of a September 12 “60 Minutes” interview with Obama conducted by Croft reveals that the president refused to call the deadly siege in Benghazi, which reports now indicate was carried out by al Qaeda and pro al Qaeda militants, an act of terrorism.

The video clip of the previously unaired interview portion is featured below. It was posted by CBS rather inconspicuously on November 4 and clearly it was not given any prominence on the CBS site as it has only garnred 12 comments.
Thus far, the only other mainstream news outlet to pick up on the phantom interview segment was Fox News in a report by anchor Bret Baier. Watch this telling, and perhaps damning clip of the president as he skirts the issue and verbiage of terrorism all together.

Perhaps the next logical question would be, why did CBS release this new footage at all?

This is one of my many worries I have with our President...
He's a softy... He should have not been such big of a #### and just called this a Terrorist attack?
We clearly knew this was an attack, not a ####ing youtube protest. Not saying He needs start calling ppl out, pointing at tv camera's, calling foreign leaders with threats, saying we coming to get you for doing this to Americans.

Where is the Transparency Obama, stop leaving us in the dark, tell us the truth Mr. President...
