In an interview on Thursday with Jon Stewart for The Daily Show, President Obama told Stewart that his administration wasn't "confused" in its response to last month's terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, The Washington Post reports. Four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, died in the attack.

The president told Stewart that “every piece of information that we get, as we got it, we laid it out to the American people. The picture eventually gets fully filled in."

The otherwise-serious 14-minute interview, which aired on Thursday at 11 p.m., was punctuated by jokes, including quips about Vice President Joe Biden, The Post reports.
