President Obama delivered a defiant defense Monday of his administration’s response to the Benghazi terror attack, calling the revived controversy over the matter a “sideshow.”

The president addressed the issue during a press conference alongside British Prime Minister David Cameron, who is visiting Washington.

The president, with his comments, echoed remarks made by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who asked during testimony in January “what difference” did the controversy over the talking points make.
