NEW YORK (AP) - President Barack Obama is pushing back against critics who say there was confusion within his administration following the deadly attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Libya.

Obama says on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" that he "wasn't confused" about the need to ramp up diplomatic security around the globe and investigate the Libya attack, which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

When host Jon Stewart pressed Obama to admit that government coordination was not "optimal," the president says that when four Americans are killed, quote, "it's not optimal. We're going to fix it. All of it."

Republican Mitt Romney has challenged Obama on why U.S. officials initially argued that the Sept. 11 attack was prompted by a protest against an American-made film ridiculing Islam.
