  •  Wasn't it (7+ / 0-)

    just 12 short weeks before Benghazi that McCain was crying about too much information being released to the public?

       McCain, in a statement, accused the White House of leaking information about its role in Stuxnet to improve the president’s reelection bid. He called for the appointment of special counsel to investigate and prosecute whoever was behind the leaks.

        “The only conceivable motive for such damaging and compromising leaks of classified information is that it makes the president look good,” McCain said on Tuesday. “They are merely gratuitous and utterly self-serving.”

    I know that we've all become somewhat immune to any sort of surprise at Republican hypocrisy, due to its prevalence, call it outrage fatigue, but these are his words, from this year.  Would it be asking too much to have "journalists" at least mention it if they're not going to laugh him out of the room altogether?
