The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart ridiculed the Obama administration for blaming the embassy attack in Libya on a YouTube video, failing to recognize it as a terrorist attack even though it occurred on the anniversary of 9/11.

Stewart highlighted video clips of the jumbled response from Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the National Director of Counter-terrorism.

A shocked Stewart noted that Obama was still suggesting that the attack was a result of the controversial You Tube video on The View, over a week later.

“Do you guys even talk to each other?” Stewart asked.

Stewart pointed out that CNN was able to pinpoint the violence as the result terrorist attack within 24 hours.

“Well, two things apparently have become clear,” The Daily Shows Jon Stewart jokes. “The attack on our embassy was planned and coordinated. The response to it — not so much.”
