H/t: Think Progress
John Sidney McCain, who seems to have completely lost what was left of his mind:
“Under the present circumstances, until we find out all the information as to what happened, I don’t think you would want to support any nominee right now. Because this is very very serious and it has even larger implications than the deaths of 4 Americans.”
Note to JohnSidney McCrankyPants: Susan Rice was given talking points by the intel community, so she wasn’t “wrong.” She presented the declassified information that they provided her. Time to stop whining and pointing fingers, go home, take a nap, and come back when you’re ready to be at least minimally rational.
For more insight into “a once honorable war hero [who] had become a nasty little troll,” please read Juan Adams’ post at Down With Tyranny, “McCain’s Benghazi Fail– Was A Vainglorious Old U.S. Senator Responsible For The Tragedy In Benghazi?” He uncovered a nugget that deserves much more attention:
McCain: “The last message our beloved ambassador sent to us concerns about security in Benghazi. He had even voiced them to me when I was in Tripoli. Nothing was done.”
HE HAD EVEN VOICED THEM TO ME WHEN I WAS IN TRIPOLI. NOTHING WAS DONE.
I do not know how this got lost in the news cycle but on October 28th, John McCain clearly stated– on national television– that Ambassador Chris Stevens had directly voiced security concerns and McCain chose to do nothing. To this day, McCain has never been asked to explain what he did with the direct information from Stevens about these concerns but in light of the tragedy, perhaps we now have the perfect point from which to launch a Watergate-like investigation.
