On Libya, Crowley Changes Her Tune

On Sunday, September 30th, Candy Crowley interviewed John McCain on the Benghazi scandal. During the interview, she said: 

Friday [Sept 28th], we got the administration’s sort of definitive statement that this now looks as though it was a pre-planned attack by a terrorist group, some of whom were at least sympathetic to Al-Qaeda. Why do you think, and are you bothered, that it has taken them so long to get to this conclusion?

Those remarks seem to contradict her statement tonight that the President clearly labeled the attack on the Benghazi consulate a terrorist attack in his Rose Garden statement on September 12th. 


UPDATE: The Washington Free Beacon notes Crowley post-debate acknowledgement that Romney was “right in the main” on Benghazi tonight. She claims, though, that he “picked the wrong word” to hone in on.
