O'Reilly told Obama that some believe that the White House did not call the situation in Benghazi a terrorist attack for political reasons before the 2012 election, which Obama rebutted.

"They believe it because folks like you are telling them," Obama said. "We revealed to the American people exactly what we understood at the time."

Inhofe insisted on KFAQ that Obama was hiding something.

“I will say this to my dying day — I know people don’t realize it now — but that’s going to go down in history as the greatest cover-up. And I’m talking about compared to the Pentagon Papers, Iran-Contra, Watergate and the rest of them. This was a cover-up in order for people right before the election to think that there was no longer a problem with terrorism in the Middle East," he said.

The Oklahoma senator also praised O'Reilly for questioning the President about Benghazi and called Fox News the only station that "isn't virtually owned" by Obama.
