UPDATE: The pressure is mounting for President Barack Obama. Questions continue to circulate about why the White House failed to publicly state the Libyan attack on the US mission was an act of terrorism after they were informed of this.
Official emails were released earlier this week showing the White House and State Department were informed on September 11th, 2012 - the day of the attack - that it was indeed the work of Islamic miltants.
US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other security personnel were killed.
Obama did not clearly confirm it was an act of terrorism until two weeks after the attack.
With less than two weeks to go until Election Day, and polls showing the candidates are in a dead heat, all eyes are on candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney as the countdown to the White House continues.
A new poll today is showing a four-point lead for US Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
The Rasmussen poll suggests that Romney is more trusted than US President Obama on the economy and energy issues, while Obama scores better on national security. Among those who have already voted, Obama has a 10-point advantage.
The two are in a dead heat in Ohio, tied at 48%.
Ohio is a critical state in the election, and strategists are saying that both Romney and Obama should be campaigning hard there, with less than two weeks to go until US voters hit the polls.
The Obama camp has reportedly stopped polling aggressively in Ohio and is campaigning across the country. In contrast, Romney is focusing in this state and spending extensive time there.
Some are speculating that polls seem to indicate that the 15% of undecided American voters may be shifting toward Romney.
With polls showing the candidates neck-and-neck in key states, and some suggesting Romney has a small but definitive lead, the race to the White House could be anyone's game.
