In an interview with Telemundo, President Obama called for justice in Tuesday's U.S. embassy attacks in Libya and Egypt, which left four Americans dead, including the U.S. ambassador in Libya. Obama called for a full investigation, adding that when it comes to tracking down the culprits, "our hope is to be able to capture them, but we'll obviously have to cooperate with the Libyan government." His statements come as new evidence suggests that the attack in Libya may have been perpetrated by terrorists who used the mob uproar as cover for the deadly attack. When asked by host José Díaz-Balart if he considered Egypt a friend, Obama said, "I don't think we would consider them an ally. But we don't consider them an enemy," either.
