Below is from FNC’s James Rosen:
A senior Obama administration official confirms to Fox News that President Obama did indeed call President Morsi (as this New York Times article first reported) and discuss with him the need for Egypt to take adequate steps to protect U.S. personnel in the country. President Obama additionally asked President Morsi to make a public statement, and the U.S. president is “greatly appreciative” that Mr. Morsi did so. The official would not characterize the tone of the conversation, nor confirm nor deny the Times’s characterization that Mr. Obama spoke in a “blunt” manner to Mr. Morsi.
The official shot down as “false” published reports from The Independent and elsewhere suggesting that the Obama administration had credible warnings of an attack in Benghazi some forty-eight hours prior to the assault.
The official could not confirm that the Libyans have made arrests but said they have provided “excellent cooperation” with the united states in the aftermath of the Benghazi incident.
Lastly, the official pointed out that these are protests about “an inflammatory video, not broader protests against America or U.S. values. Yes, they’re showing up at American embassies, because they’re getting spun up. But we need to see this for what it is.”
