Secretary Panetta: I Knew Benghazi Was A Terrorist Attack Right Away

Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told MSNBC today that he knew the attack in Benghazi was a terrorist attack “from the very beginning.” Secretary Clinton would not publicly call Benghazi a terrorist attack until September 21st, 2012.  The Secretary of Defense’s immediate, clear-eyed view undermines Secretary Clinton’s claim that the “fog of war” prevented her from knowing that the consulate had been attacked by terrorists.
