Skip to comments.McCain Rips Obama on Libya at Relief Event
Posted on 10/30/2012 7:10:13 PM PDT by kristinn
ONTARIO, OH Arizona Sen. John McCain delivered a stinging rebuke of President Barack Obama's handling of the terrorist attack on an American consulate in Libya, saying the commander in chief is either "engaged in a massive cover-up" or is "grossly incompetent."
The 2008 GOP presidential nominee focused his remarks on the Sept. 11, 2012 attack in Libya rather than Hurricane Sandy at an event in battleground Ohio that had been billed as a "storm relief and volunteer appreciation" event.
"This president is either engaged in a massive cover-up deceiving the American people or he is so grossly incompetent that he is not qualified to be the commander in chief of our armed forces. It's either one of them," McCain told Romney volunteers gathered here at a Victory Center.
"I think it's interesting to note that when there was a success, such as when, thank God, we were able to get bin Laden, the administration poured out every single detail, even details that put American lives in danger," McCain said. He later added: "It is my obligation to the men and women who are serving to get the full story out to these four brave Americans have families. They deserve to know why their sons were sacrificed in the needless fashion."

Awww - poor widdle nbc doesn’t like truth.
Reported by NBC?
Thanks very much, TravisMcGee!
I think I’ll try FaceBook!

Ping and please ping your lists.
Tell it to the SEALS, McCain.
I'll bet you do hate it, McPain. Interesting to see this on NBC...they've been carefully to studiously avoid Benghazi coverage.
Well, better late than never. Don’t like Mclame much, but let’s give credit where credit is due. It’s good SOMEBODY is speaking out on this cover-up. I guess Obama finally screwed up in an area where Mclame really has passion — leaving Americans behind that are in harm’s way. I frankly wish Romney would say a few words about this as well.
My thinking is that they figure if McCain said it, it MUST be wimpy who-cares nonsense. But even broken clocks are right twice a day. Just McCain trying to be relevant for the first time in his RINO life, in this case shouting "hey, look at me!" to his MSM buddies.
Well, now.... looks like today, Juan McLame’s tea leaves told him “Be Patriotic”.
Tomorrow could be a whole ‘nuther story!

Hmmmmmmmmm, - - - , looks like Rafferty managed to get this embed report past his editor. I’ll give Rafferty 2 weeks more at NBC.
LOL. Well, ALL RIGHT!
I like him best when he MAD and on the RIGHT SIDE!
He’s Navy and truly pissed about this.
Well whatever the reason, it's about time he started showing some backbone & calling out the anti-American POS in the white hut. Unfortunately it's 4 years late, but as others have said - better late than never.
Yep, but if he can get the lamestream to report, that’s all that counts right now.
