  •  Your post is nothing less than an indictment (0+ / 0-)

    against McCain's much vaunted patriotism.  I must admit to knowing nothing about McCain's knowledge of Benghazi, and I read the NYT regularly.  Where have the media been on this story?  

    Thanks for the enlightening information.

    •  The best way to learn about what McCain's role in (0+ / 0-)

      allowing the security problems to go unaddressed would be to pull up each one of the Sunday morning political talk shows from the weekend right after Benghazi.  To the best of my memory, McCain made the rounds and on each one went to pains to describe how alarmed he'd been at the dangers he'd seen when he was there in July 2012, just a couple of months before the massacre.

      By the end of the last talk show, I was throwing things at my TV and cursing at the hosts for their cowardice and/or stupidity in not asking the most obvious follow-up question for McCain's claims of concerns to which he apparently alerted to no one, and most particularly not to his "friend" HRC, whom he ridiculously castigated in the way he, himself, should have been for keeping to himself the life-saving knowledge he could have passed along to HRC or the President or the press, if the first two refused to address the security problems in Benghazi, something which I would stake my life would not have been the case.  

      I haven't checked to see if those shows on which McCain appeared are still accessible, but if they are, I'm guessing they'll make you as outraged as they made me.  

      As to where the media has been... I've emailed pretty much every MSNBC show host, called most of the Democratic Senators and Congressmens' Washington offices and a few of the republicans to boot.  Crickets.  Just crickets.  

      I have no idea why they've ignored this, other than they're scared shitless of the little tyrant and don't want to risk his refusing to appear on one of their shows as payback.  

      Thanks for replying and sharing your thoughts...  I'd love to read your thoughts if you do watch any/all of those talk shows.
