Obama told NBC's 'Meet the Press' that the US would "implement every single recommendation" put forward in an independent review of the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate in which Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed.

"We're not going to pretend that this was not a problem. This was a huge problem," he said, adding that the investigation into who carried out the deadly raid was "ongoing."

"The FBI has sent individuals to Libya repeatedly. We have some very good leads, but this is not something that I'm going to be at liberty to talk about right now," he added.
