The transcript clearly shows he did not and continued to lie to America for up to 2 weeks (i.e. the UN address on Sep 25th) afterwards. Then she needs to issue an apology to Romney for not allowing him to rebuff Obama’s lie.

And I’m sorry, but on the foreign policy stage semantics count and being reluctant to call terrorism, terrorism sends a clear message to those who want to harm our people and our country. It tells terrorists all they need to know about Obama and gives them exactly what they want to hear.

It was a clear, and inclusive reference to the Benghazi affair. After all, we already know that Setp/11 was a terrorist attack, and now there was another.
It is a lie, and a twisting of words--which Republicans are shameless experts at--to claim otherwise. Romeny was caught speaking somehing incorrect, because once again he as trying to score political points. Mr. Romney is not qualifid to talk about things he doesn't know" : and for the time that was spent in finding out about the situation, it is no surprise, given that spontaneous threatening demonstratons were going on all over the Middle east at the same time.
And a government doesn't tip its hands or come out--speaking about investatins--what they are finding out until the picture is finished. Even then, some details won't come to light, because there is active work going on.
There is no question that President Obama's acts of terror, right on the heels of Benghazi, included that incident, while also linking it to Sept 11. Any other interpretation is just a plain disregard of the facts.

The word moderator indicates she should have been fair and not be one of the debaters. She should be ashamed of herself and resign. CNN should apologize for her conduct. And if she does not resign CNN should fire her.
