Could John McCain really be this dumb? On an interview on his Benghazi/Susan Rice double down he just questioned how it was we had so much more information so quickly about the raid on the bin Laden compound than we had about the attack in Benghazi.
Now, you may remember that the facts of what apparently happened in the bin Laden raid changed pretty dramatically from the initial accounts. But set that aside, you tend to know more about a raid you spent a year planning and executed yourself than a raid on your compound which, as kinda tends to happen in these cases, you didn’t know about in advance and happened in the dark.
Choice McCain quote after the jump …
Under what circumstances? Why was reference to al qaeda left out? There are so many things that have happened. The interesting things finally, we knew in hours of all the details when we got bin laden, they making a movie out of it and we are ten weeks later and finally our ambassador to the united nations who appeared on every national sunday show is now saying that she gave false information concerning how this tragedy happened as far as the spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video.
