Bret Baier's Take on Obama's 'Daily Show' Interview; Plus, a Preview of 'Death and Deceit in Benghazi'
Special Report host Bret Baier called in to Fox and Friends this morning to discuss the latest developments on the campaign trail, including the president's "Daily Show" interview.
He also gave us a preview of his in-depth look at the Libya attack, in "Special Report Investigates: Death and Deceit in Benghazi," which airs at 10p ET tonight.
During last night’s interview on “The Daily Show,” President Obama addressed the attack in Benghazi, Libya, saying, “Every piece of information that we got as we got it we laid it out for the American people, and the picture eventually gets fully filled in and we know how to prevent it in the future.”
He went on to say, “If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. We’re going to fix it. All of it. And what happens, during the course of a presidency, is that the government is a big operation and any given time something screws up. And you make sure that you find out what’s broken and you fix it.” Baier pointed out that Jon Stewart actually used the words "not optimal," in his question about the Libya attack and that Obama's choice of words came as a response.
Though he conceded that the phrasing by the president was "tough" for many people to hear. "The tougher phrase perhaps from that interview is: 'every piece of information that we got, as we got it, we laid it out for the American people and the picture will eventually get fully filled in.' That's just not the facts," said Baier. Watch the full interview, which includes a sneak peek at "Death and Deceit in Benghazi."
