Romney: On Libya, ‘I Think There Was Misleading on the Part of the Administration’

From an interview with the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin:

I began with Libya. Did the White House mislead Americans or was there just confusion about the origin of the attacks on Sept. 11, 2012? In his most definitive statement to date, Romney answered, “I think there was misleading on the part of the administration.” He continued, “It took way too long for the president to acknowledge that there had been an executed terrorist attack on September 11, 2012.”

There had been indications Romney was going to shy away from directly attacking President Obama’s handling of the situation in Libya, but this comment suggests he’s now ready to tackle Obama head-on about this.
