ED HENRY, FOX NEW CHIEF WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT: Did you and others mislead the public because you didn't want to admit there was a terrorist attack?

    CARNEY: Absolutely not. The President of the United States referred to it as an act of terror immediately after it occurred.

    HENRY: Then why were you at this podium for several days after that saying we don't know if it's a terrorist attack -- .

    CARNEY: I never said that. I never said that we don't know if it's terrorism. There is an issue about the definition of terrorism and this the definition an act of terrorism. The President made clear.


    O'REILLY: Spin aside there is no question that the Obama administration screwed this up. There is no question. They screwed it up. We simply did not have enough security in Libya to protect the American Ambassador. The big question going forward is, was there a conscious effort to cover up that poor security situation? The answer to that question could decide the election.

    And that's "The Memo."
