GOP to continue focus on Libya consulate attack
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) – It’s an issue that is sure to come up again next week when President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney debate for a third and final time, with the focus on foreign policy.
Last night’s debate didn’t end Republican questions about the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador.
Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan tells CBS that “we need to get to the bottom of this” in order to keep it from happening again.
Meanwhile, the moderator of last night’s presidential debate says she wasn’t trying to “fact-check” the candidates — but was simply trying to “move them along.”
Candy Crowley of CNN is getting criticism from some Republicans for telling Mitt Romney during the debate that President Barack Obama did, in fact, describe the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya as an act of terror the day after it happened.
