Obama: "If Four Americans Get Killed, It's Not Optimal"

JON STEWART: "Is part of the investigation helping the communication between these divisions of security? Not just what happened in Benghazi, but what happened within. Because I would say, even you would admit, it was not the optimal response, at least to the American people, as far as us all being on the same page."

PRESIDENT OBAMA: "Here's what I’ll say. If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. And we’re going to fix it, all of it. And what happens, during the course of a presidency, is that the government is a big operation and any given time something screws up. And you make sure that you find out what’s broken and you fix it. And whatever else I'll have done throughout the course of my presidency, one thing that I’ve been absolutely clear about is that America’s security comes first, and the American people need to know exactly how I make decisions when it comes to war, peace, national security, and protecting Americans. And they will continue to get that over the next four years of my presidency."
