McCain snaps when asked why he skipped Libya briefing to discuss Libya11/16/2012
Like many people, Sen. John McCain wants more information about the attack of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. On Wednesday, he had the chance, when high-ranking military and diplomatic officials held a classified briefing. But the Arizona senator and other Republican members of a Senate committee investigating the attacks skipped the briefing; at the same time, McCain held a press conference to call for a special Watergate-style committee to look into the Benghazi attacks. When pressed Thursday by a CNN reporter on why he skipped the briefing, a cranky McCain snapped, "Because I have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell me I can or not?" His spokesman later blamed it on a "scheduling error." [Source]
