VIDEO: Anderson Cooper to GOP Rep. " What You're Saying is Factually Not Correct"

Tonight on AC360°, GOP Congressman Rep. Dana Rohrabacher accused President Obama of lying about the attack in Benghazi. He said that the attack should never have been attributed to “movie rage” and that in the days following the bombing, the President went out of his way to not use the words “terror attack” though he knew it was.

Anderson asked him to provide evidence for his claim and that’s where things get heated.

Watch the interview on link below.

Israel rep.: One or two days before ground troops move into Gaza

Israel Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon tells CNN’s Soledad O’Brien that Gaza may have a day or two before ground troops move in.

Ayalon says, “We are kind of reluctant warriors. We don’t want to get into Gaza if we don’t have to. But if they keep firing at us… a ground operation is still in the cards…. We have very simple, specific goals.”

When O’Brien asks what would trigger a ground operation, Ayalon responds, “If we will see in the next 24 to 36 hours more rockets launched at us, I think that would be the trigger.”

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs weekday mornings from 7-9a ET on CNN.
