Senator Clinton has done an extraordinary job — but she works for me. I’m the President, and I’m always responsible. And that’s why nobody’s more interested in finding out exactly what happened than I am.
The day after the attack, governor, I stood in the Rose Garden and I told the American people and the world that we are gonna find out exactly what happened; that this was an act of terror; and I also said that we’re gonna hunt down those who committed this crime. And then a few days later, I was there greeting the caskets coming into Andrews Air Force Base, and grieving with the families.
And the suggestion that anybody on my team — the Secretary of State, the U.N. Ambassador — would play politics or mislead when we lost four of our own, governor, is offensive. That’s not what we do. That’s not what I do as President; that’s not what I do as Commander-in-Chief.
