Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) said Monday the administration is now attempting to “throw the CIA under the bus” regarding the terrorist attack in Benghazi, after doing so to Sec. Hillary Clinton.
“It’s ridiculous and outrageous to blame it on intelligence sources when facts are right before your very eyes,” McCain said, in an interview with Wolf Blitzer in advance of Monday’s foreign policy debate. “It’s ridiculous. It’s an attempt–first they threw Hillary under the bus, now I guess they’re going to throw the CIA under the bus.”
McCain said that despite the administration’s continued narrative about protests and an anti-Islam video in the days after the attack, there was “open information” that indicated it was not–including video from an unmanned Predator drone sent to the site during the attack.
