Every once in a while, McCain makes since. Obama and his administration knowingly lied about the September 11th attack in Benghazi happening because of a YouTube video due to the terrorist attack contradicting Team Obama’s “al-Qaeda is on the run…al-Qaeda is on it’s heels…I killed bin Laden” talking points on foreign policy. They couldn’t let the truth slip out weeks ahead of an election.
Sen. John McCain paid a visit to CBS’ Face the Nation this weekend, to discuss the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, particularly through the lens of the White House response to the situation. Asked why the president’s administration would be unwilling to immediately connect the incident to terrorism, McCain pointed to the administration’s misleading narrative.
“If the administration misled people, if the administration was reluctant to say that this was a work of terrorists, if in fact it was, why would they be so reluctant to say that?” Bob Schieffer asked.
McCain pointed to President Barack Obama‘s “I got bin Laden, al Qaeda’s on the run” narrative. It’s not true, he said. “Al Qaeda is making a strong comeback all over the Middle East.”
“It may interfere with that narrative,” McCain said. He then raised another point. “They said they wanted to not give a ‘classified’ assessment of what happened because they didn’t want to betray sources. Well, if classified assessment changed the unclassified assessment, why in the world would you keep that information from the American people?”
