McCain Hammers NBC's Gregory: 'Do You Care? Shouldn’t People Be Held Accountable for the Deaths of Four Americans?'
Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) on “Meet the Press”
JOHN MCCAIN: We have had two movies about getting bin Laden and we don’t even know who the people were who were evacuated from the consulate the next day after the attack, so there are many, many questions. We have had a massive cover-up on the part of the administration.
DAVID GREGORY: But a massive cover-up of what? Susan Rice says there was a lot of confusion.
MCCAIN: I'm asking you, do you care, David — I’m asking you do you care whether four Americans died? The reasons for that? And shouldn’t people be held accountable for the fact that four Americans died?
GREGORY: You said there is a cover-up. A cover-up of what? A cover-up of what?
MCCAIN: Of the information concerning the deaths of four brave Americans. The information has not been forthcoming. You can obviously believe that it has. I know that it hasn’t, and I will be glad to send you a list of the questions that have not been answered, including what did the president do and who did he talk to the night of the attack on Benghazi and why was it, why was it that we — that the people who were evacuated from the — from the consulate the next day were not interviewed the next day and then they would have known that it was not a spontaneous demonstration. Why did the president, for two weeks, for two weeks during the heat of the campaign, continue to say he didn’t know whether it was a terrorist attack or not? Is it because it interfered with the line of al Qaeda is decimated and everything’s fine in that part of the world? Maybe. We don’t know. But we need the answers. Then we will reach conclusions, but we have not received the answers and that’s a fact.
