Last Sunday on CBS's Face the Nation, Chicago Mayor and Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel said President Obama displayed strong leadership handling the Libya crisis. Emmanuel went on to say that Obama "took control and he said exactly what needs to be done."
"If you look across the waterfront, America's leadership has never been stronger," Emmanuel said.
Earlier in the show, Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) accused the Obama administration of a "massive cover-up" of the situation. McCain made his remarks after revelations that the Obama administration denied requests for help from Americans on the ground in Libya hours after the terrorist attacks.
Emmanuel disagreed with McCain.
"You have an event, a changing event, you don't have people on the ground, in a sense, with that information," Emmanuel said according to The Hill
. "The intelligence community, many different apparatuses -- from military intelligence, national security intelligence, CIA -- is assembling that information to give you the best picture, and events change."
