In an interview with 60 Minutes to air this Sunday, President Obama suggested that Mitt Romney acted too quickly in responding to the U.S. embassy in Cairo’s statement condemning an anti-Islam video, reports Politico.
“There’s a broader lesson to be learned here. Gov. Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later,” Obama told CBS News’s Steve Kroft in an interview that was actually scheduled before the four Americans were killed Tuesday at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
“As president, one of the things I’ve learned is you can’t do that,” Obama added. “It’s important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and that you’ve thought through the ramifications before you make them.”
Asked if Romney’s remarks were irresponsible, Obama responded: “I’ll let the American people judge that.”

CBS News — Several hundred Christians pelted police with rocks outside a Cairo hospital Monday in fresh clashes the day after 24 people died in riots that grew out of a Christian protest against a church attack. Sunday’s sectarian violence was the worst in Egypt since the uprising that ousted Hosni Mubarak in February. Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf warned in a televised address that the riots were another setback on the country’s already fraught transition to civilian rule after three decades of Mubarak’s authoritarian government.
“These events have taken us back several steps,” Sharaf said. He blamed foreign meddling for the troubles, claiming it was part of a “dirty conspiracy.” Similar explanations for the troubles in Egypt are often heard from the military rulers who took power from Mubarak, perhaps at attempt to deflect accusations that they are bungling the management of the country.
