McCain Says Benghazi a Cover-up or Incompetence

This morning on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” John McCain says that the President’s reaction to Benghazi is either a cover-up or gross incompetence (see video above).

Others are also beginning to sound the alarm. The Washington Post‘s Jennifer Rubin has it right:

So how about it, Mr. President — who called off a rescue and why? President Obama, a little more than a week before the election, won’t tell Americans what happened. Well, why should he — the press doesn’t hound him, the liberal elite still rushes to his defense, and his White House attack dogs bark “Politics!” whenever legitimate questions are asked.

Meanwhile, the father of slain SEAL Tyrone Woods is furious with the administration, demanding to know why his son wasn’t saved when “apparently even the State Department had a live stream and was aware of their calls for help. My son wasn’t even there. He was at a safe house about a mile away. He got the distress call; he heard them crying for help; that’s why he and Glen risked their lives to go that extra mile just to take care of the situation. And I’m sure that wasn’t the only one received that distress call — you know, ‘Come save our lives.'”

Did Defense Secretary Leon Panetta take it upon himself to call off any rescue effort? (He told the press on Thursday that the Pentagon lacked clear information as to what was going on.) Where was the president and did he or some other official take it upon himself to deny help to the trapped Americans?

This is an appalling tale of, at the very least, gross incompetency and utter lack of transparency. The media, including those who continue to carry Obama’s political water, should be demanding Obama answer questions, before the election.

    I suppose McCain would know about gross incompetence and cover ups judging from his role in Keating 5 and cheerleading for that disastrous war in Iraq.

    There is a coordinated push to blame Obama personally for what happened in Benghazi and the obvious goal is to make it a deciding issue for the election. Rubin, Kristol, Limbaugh etc are no one’s idea of impartial observers. The implication that Obama indirectly or directly withheld assisrance

    Rubin, Kristol, Limbaugh etc are no one’s idea of impartial observers. The implication that Obama indirectly or directly withheld assistance is politically potent and insidious at the same time. I suspect even if Obama is reelected Darrell Issa will conduct investigations with the intent for impeachment proceedings.

    I heard Limbaugh on the radio saying this was worse than Watergate. Remarkable.

    And what was Limbaughs reasoning for it being worse than Watergate? It resulted in the death of 4 Americans.
