Former White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs Responds to Obama's Libya Comments at Debate
This morning on Fox and Friends, former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs offered his take on one of the most notable moments from last night's town hall debate.
A questioner asked President Obama about reports that the Obama administration denied requests for extra security at the compound in Benghazi, Libya, where four Americans
were killed in a terror attack Sept. 11.
The president failed to directly address the issue of security concerns prior to the attack.
Gibbs, now a senior adviser to the Obama campaign, was asked by Gretchen Carlson whether he'd like to answer that question, since Obama chose not to.
"I do think the president answered because I think what the president said is: 'the answer to that question is exactly what we need to get to the bottom of.' We need to understand exactly what happened that day. We do need to understand the events that led up to it. ... Nobody wants to find out the answers to these questions more than President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton, so that we can talk directly to the families of those that tragically lost their lives," Gibbs said.
