Romney: White House gave ‘mixed signals’

- Associated Press - Wednesday, September 12, 2012

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Wednesday said it's never too early for America to condemn attacks on its sovereignty and said the White House gave "mixed signals" in its response to the breach of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.

Mr. Romney condemned attacks against the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four U.S. diplomats, including the U.S. ambassador.

Still, Mr. Romney stood by his sharp statement Tuesday night criticizing the Obama administration. On Wednesday, he said that statement from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo was "akin to apology" and a "severe miscalculation."
