JOY BEHAR: And we’re back with President Barack Obama and First lady Michelle Obama. Okay, I want to talk about Libya for second, because on 9-11 of this past year, our embassy was attacked there and we lost four people, including the Ambassador, and it was reported that people just went crazy and wild because of this anti-Muslim movie — or anti-Muhammad, I guess, movie — but then I heard Hillary Clinton say that it was an act of terrorism.

Now we don’t have all the information yet, and so we’re still gathering it, but what’s clear is that around the world there’s still a lot of threats out there.
