Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) on Monday said President Obama lied about the terrorist attack in Benghazi during an interview that aired before the Super Bowl.

Inhofe said the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya will “go down in history as the greatest cover-up,” and slammed Obama for claiming it was thoroughly investigated.

“It’s just an outrageous lie. It’s kind of hard to call it anything else. It’s kind of like ObamaCare and the things he said in the beginning and now he’s denying it,” Inhofe said during a radio interview on 1170 KFAQ’s “The Pat Campbell Show,” which based in Tulsa, Okla.

The 2012 attack on an American compound in Benghazi was staged on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Republicans argue the administration falsely claimed that the attack was a protest gone wrong in the immediate aftermath to try and protect the president.

Fox host Bill O’Reilly told Obama in the interview that “your detractors” believe the administration spun the narrative on the Benghazi attack for political reasons.

“They believe it because folks like you are telling them,” Obama responded, adding it took intelligence officials a while to confirm what had happened.

“What I am saying is ‘that is inaccurate.’ We revealed to the American people exactly what we understood at the time,” Obama said.

Inhofe said Monday he “applauds[s]” O’Reilly for pressing him on Benghazi, and that Fox News is the only station that “isn’t virtually owned” by Obama.

“I will say this till my dying day, I know people don’t realize it now, that’s going to go down in history as the greatest cover-up. And I’m talking about the Pentagon Papers, Iran-Contra, Watergate and the rest of them,” Inhofe said.
