John McCain's Getting Clowned for His Latest Complaint About the Benghazi Situation

mccain-tongue-side.jpg
It's been a while since Senator John McCain has talked about a White House "coverup" of details in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya -- although his spokesman wouldn't tell us if he's given up on that theory -- but McCain still has complaints.

One of these new complaints has been described as "a special kind of dumb," and has one editor asking if this is the "stupidest thing McCain ever said?"

McCain acted like he was accepting the explanation of why U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice gave factually incorrect details about the September 11 attack on the consulate -- like the initial claim that it was "spontaneous."

"I am somewhat surprised and frustrated to read reports that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence was responsible for removing references to Al-Qaeda from the unclassified talking points about the Benghazi attack that Ambassador Susan Rice and other officials used in the early days after September 11, 2012," McCain said in a statement last week.

Then Rice and McCain met to talk about it this week, and McCain came out to give Fox News the details:

"Again, who changed the talking points that was used by Ambassador Rice, and why? And on what circumstances? Why was references to Al Qaeda left out? There are so many things that have happened, and the interesting thing is, finally, Neil, we knew within hours of all the details when we got bin Laden in the raid there -- every bitty one of them. They're making a movie out of it.

"And here we are 10 weeks later, and finally our ambassador to the United Nations who appeared on every national Sunday show has now said that she gave false information concerning how this tragedy happened as far as the spontaneity of a demonstration triggered by a hateful video."


McCain already answered a few of his own questions in that statement quoted above, but the goofy part is the comparison to the bin Laden raid.

Dude, Senator, of course the U.S. had just about all the details of a raid that was planned out by the United States.

When it's not your plan, it might take you a while to figure out and explain what happened (example: the 9/11 Commission Report was released on July 22, 2004).

It's been theorized that McCain's on a personal/political crusade, and since McCain's spokesman didn't answer our request to make clear McCain's intentions, we can't really tell you if that's true or false.

The Benghazi Situation?

Is that the term now for a US Ambassador's assassination? A 9-11 target hit is a situation?

I'm with you David, he talks because he has a mouth. I have a couple of examples: a) For dream act, then he pledged he was against it when running for his campaign. b) Illegal immigrants starting wild fires last year, then he changed it saying that people at "illegal hours" at the parks were the ones who started the fires, there for they were "illegals." And so on...He'll probably change his mind tomorrow...

where was Senator McCain when Condoleeza Rice gave her "informed briefings"on WMD's in Iraq?  also, McCain was the first to want to give arms to these folks in Libya. he's trying to stay in the public eye and not fade away with dignity.

Like most republicans, I'm sure McCain considers this to be a "mission from God." After all, didn't God personally tell four or five of the Presidential hopefuls to run? Somebody needs to get John a big bowl of pudding and tell him to STFU.

John McCain has become a world wide joke since his presidential defeat in 2008. I believe that McCain can not accept the fact that the American people soundly rejected his hateful out of touch warmongering views. At this point John McCain is no longer mentally competent to hold any public office.  The GOP should demand that he retire or McCain is going to take the whole party down with his hatred behavior.
