John McCain · UN Abassador Susan Rice

Would You Like Some Crow With That Rice, Senator McCain?

The Daily DishAndrew Sullivan

The irascible douche now acknowledges there is no evidence that Susan Rice was responsible for editing CIA talking points after the Benghazi attack, and that the DNI gave her what she subsequently went on TV with. End of scandal. No formal retractionor apology of course:

Today’s news comes just a week after McCain went on national television and claimed that Rice’s “talking points came from the White House, not from the DNI. He added on Fox that “I think it’s patently obvious that the talking points that Ambassador Rice had didn’t come from the CIA. It came from the White House.” For weeks, McCain has lambasted the administration forengaging in “either a cover-up or the worst kind of incompetence” on the Benghazi attack.

Of course, McCain believed it was perfectly obvious that Saddam had WMDs in Iraq. And so did I. I’ve learned to wait for the facts a little bit longer before jumping to conclusions of conspiracy or mendacity.

  1. John McCain is still suffering from having his ass handed to him in the 2008 election. He should have studied up on his disastrous VP choice of the null&void Sarah Palin with the same intensity he displays bashing the POTUS on a regular basis. These repugnant conservatives have literally lost what little was left of their demented mind sets after another unsuccessful attempt to “Take back their country.”
