BREAKING: CBS News suppressed 60 Minutes video to protect Obama on Benghazi, Libya

November 5, 2012

There's no way to spin this - it's pure, unadulterated, blatantly obvious media bias, in which information extremely damaging to Barack Obama was kept from the public, to protect the President at a moment of crisis.

CBS News has finally revealed the full contents of the interview Barack Obama gave to Steve Kroft of "60 Minutes" on September 12, 2012 - the day after the terrorist attack in Benghazi, which the President and his people would go on to misrepresent as a "spontaneous protest" for weeks, in addition to stonewalling every inquiry into their handling of consular security before and during the attack.

CBS kept crucial moments from the discussion of Benghazi in this interview buried for five weeks, at which point they released a section that many observers thought was damaging to Obama, but others cited as evidence that he wasn't really lying about the nature of the attack, because he always knew it was a terrorist strike.  (Why anyone would think that an unaired interview segment nobody outside of CBS News saw would somehow exonerate Obama from charges of lying to the public remains a mystery.)

But it turns out CBS was still playing games.  They withheld one more little snippet of that interview until yesterday, and the last piece of the puzzle invalidates efforts to use the previous dribbles of information from the "60 Minutes" memory hole to build an "Obama always said this was terrorism" narrative.  Here, for the very first time - 53 days after the interview occurred - is the full exchange between Steve Kroft and Barack Obama:

KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya Attack, do you believe that this was a terrorism attack?
