McCain on Libya attack and Syria violence

Sen. John McCain on Wednesday said Mitt Romney missed an opportunity to go after the president over Libya in the second presidential debate.

Asked whether Romney failed to press President Barack Obama on the administration's handling of last month's consulate attack, the Arizona senator said "in a way, he did" on AC360.

During the debate, Obama said he referred to the Libya attack as an "act of terror" the day after the violence last month. Romney disputed the claim, sparking a fiery exchange over whether the president used the term.

Controversy over Obama's use of 'terror'

The second presidential debate led to new rhetoric from both sides on when Pres. Obama called the attack in Libya an act of terror. In question is the meaning behind his words on Sept. 12 in a statement he made in the Rose Garden; was he referring to the assault the night before on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, or was he talking about the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington? Anderson Cooper reports.

Tonight on AC360: Mother demands answers about Benghazi attack

Pat Smith accepted her son's work despite the dangerous situations he encountered. She knew he was proud of what he was doing. Now she's mourning Sean's death and struggling to make sense of the events that lead to the lethal attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on September 11.

Her son, a computer specialist, was inside the compound when the assault began. When a security team arrived from the annex about a mile away to provide help, they found him dead and carried his body off the premises.

Smith says she cried on Pres. Obama's shoulder when her son was returned to the U.S., and he along with Secretary of State Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden promised to tell her the details about the incident. She begged to know, no matter how gruesome. Tonight she tells Anderson that she's still waiting for answers.
