Another dishonest piece of editing from Fox News

Once again Fox News has been caught editing a tape to create a false impression:

Obama had pointed out during the second presidential debate that the day after the murder of the American ambassador in Benghazi, Libya, he had referred to it as an "act of terror." Here Chris Wallace introduces a clip Obama's speech that day that was heavily edited to give a false impression that the "acts of terror" reference was to the attacks on September 11, 2001 rather than the one in Libya 11 years later. The Fox News piece is then followed by a longer extract from Obama speech that makes it clear that he most certainly was referring to the Benghazi murder as one of a series of "acts of terror."

(Updated to deleted duplicate clip.)
