John McCain Missed Briefing While Slamming Obama Over Benghazi Attack

john mccain

John McCain missed a classified briefing on the details of the Benghazi attack on Wednesday.

What was McCain doing during the briefing? According to ABC News, McCain was on the senate floor demanding answers from the White House about the Benghazi attack

Business Insider reports that officials from the State Department, the Pentagon, the CIA and the National Counterterroism Center gave a three hour briefing to the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. McCain, who is part of the committee, missed the briefing due to a “scheduling conflict.”

While the other members of the committee were being briefed about the situation McCain was criticizing the White House for how it has handled the attack on September 11 in Libya.

McCain said at a press conference:

“More than two months after the Benghazi attack, there are still many unanswered questions … While we await the findings and recommendations of the administration’s internal review of the Benghazi attack, it’s essential for the Congress to conduct its own independent assessment.”

ABC notes that McCain may have received some of the answers he was looking for at the briefing but he probably would not have been satisfied. The top Republican on the Homeland Security Committee, Senator Susan Collins, said that the briefing only “scratched the surface” of the situation.

Collins said:

“I really wasn’t (satisfied). There are many, many unanswered questions. I feel that we’ve only scratched the surface through the briefings that we had today.”

There are currently four senate committees looking into the Benghazi attack but McCain is calling for an independent group to investigate the situation. Collins, however, disagrees.

Collins said:

“I do not see the benefit of creating a brand new committee when we already have the Senate’s chief oversight committee, plus the Intelligence Committee, examining this very important matter.”

    the mouth of hanoi, considered a traitor by most who know his full story, is back acting like the old fart yelling at kids to get of his lawn. this "hero" went on hanoi radio ripping the usa to get out of prison while real heros stay behind and were tortured. as a senator he was censored for being involved in the banking mess of the 80s/90s and has protected his son who is involved in banking fraud a in the 90s and again a few years ago. as a husband he cheated on his wives and met his current wife, who was married, in a bar. if his dad was not an admiral mccain would have not been a pilot [last in his class] and his full military record whould not have been sealed. he flipped as much as romney on how views to retain his seat in the senate and has lost the respect of his peers. his racist past is catching up to him.

    Wow, just wow. You're pretty much a complete and shameless liar… like to a degree where you should consider checking yourself in for medical assistance. Please cite your evidence for this "mouth of Hanoi" business.

    this man is senile and should go home and stay there, he is beyond help and is still exercising sour grapes because he lost to Obama in 2008. Maybe he should go to Alaska with his excentric running mate there they can see Russia all day!

    John, you lost… stop being bitter and get over it. All these mud-slinging and bickering is getting old I suggest that you go to Afghanistan and pick a fight with one of the Mujahideens there.

    Senator McCain, please get the facts before accusing the President of any mishandling of the embassy attack in Libya. Are you deliberating trying to cause trouble for the Administration in anticipation of 2016? Why don't you behave as a patriotic American (yes, I know you were a POA in Viet Nam and for your service I thank you but that was in the '70's) and for once be supportive of the President instead of being so blatantly partisan? Can you imagine how much good you and your Republican cronies in Washington could do if you would support positive initiatives from the White House? And yes there have been positive initiatives from the White House. You single handedly are making my aversion to Republicans stronger—as if Romney & Ryan weren't bad enough–and I was a life-long Republican until 2008.

    Diane Rickman Carder – and your point on the Holly Petraeus article, which is replete with misspellings I might add, and according to the post it said she was appointed in January 2011 to the position, which means what? That OB knew nearly a year and a half ago that the was going to have this incident with ret. General Petraeus, a registered Republican in NH incidentally who received a unanimous confirmation by the Senate?

  23. Al Gerth

    Hey mark you DB he certainly could not be in 2 places at one time. It is well documented that O missed numerous briefings to do what he does best campaign, blame others for his lack of accomplishing anything, fund raising or golfing.

    Shame on John McCain to toss out accusations of incompetence when he knowingly chose a running mate who had to be schooled like a 12 year old on everything from geography to foreign policy to….uh,…. just what is the Federal Reserve, Sarah? (she didn't really know). John McCain willingly put Americans in danger of putting that woman in the Oval Office if, God forbid, anything happened to him. Incompetence he says? Really?

    rgilsp McCain recalled? Cut it out! How about the Muslim-n-Chief being recalled for fraudulent voting practices, both times, for tearing apart the bill of rights and constitution, for running our country into debt, for allowing 4 people to be murdered recently at Benghazi? That is the scum that needs to be ousted!

    Diane Rickman Carder where have you been for the last twenty years. Everyone is angry. About time that politicians started working on the current pressing issues. No amount of investigating will bring the people back who were lost. Get on with things…anything to avoid doing what they should be doing in Washington. John McCain needs to quit and go home. Obstructionist they have called his kind of people.

    can you explain the traitor part . i dont understand he took out bin laden .saved the auto industry trying to keep republicans out of our social security funds. extended unemployment for the working class who lost there jobs during the george w hay day and hes bringing our troops home and out of harms way ..which will make america safer with our troops being able to guard our boarders.

  35. Diane Rickman Carder

    Obama is going to have to answer for the cover ups. the truth will come out, and no we are not going to sit back and watch our citizens murdered. What next O'Driscoll?

    I am losing more and more respect for John McCain, who'd rather be out critizing President Obama than in a briefing on Benghazi, where he might have learned some facts. I'm beginning to think there needs to be age limits for Congress, 75 tops, he is at least 76, and I think I'ts time for him and those his age to go. It disturbs me that at a critical time in our Country, some of these Congressmen would rather be out keeping the hate and divisiveness going than dealing with our problems, what happened in Benghazi being just one. There is a fiscal cliff coming, whether you believe it or not, and we're going to go over it if the bitter and devisive members of the Republican party don't start working together with the other members of Congress and the President. I don't know exactly what will happen if we go over that cliff, but I don't' think I want to find out.

    Diane Rickman Carder lady please stop watching Fox News and use your brain. This was a classified meeting. However missing in some info according to another republican, the fact is information was given and the fact is Mr. McCain has no interest in the truth your partisan politics when the country needs its leaders to focus on the economy. I ask you Ms. Carder: were you this outraged when Bush took us to a war under false pretenses (weapons of mass destruction) resulting in the deaths of over 4000 americans and trillions of dollars? the democrats put their partisanship behind for the good of the country and never called for an investigation for what it truly is a real scandal. Benghazi is a trip to the zoo compared to Iraq, and nobody is accusing Obama of orchestrating the attacks, just of no knowing their nature right when it happened. Perspective please and spare me your hate-filled phony outrage.

  45. Sondra Bauernfeind

    John McCain was held as a POW for five and one half years, tortured and refused to be released once his captors learned who he was. Get your facts straight. It was John Kerry who never was a POW, was awarded several purple hearts for band-aid quality " war wounds ' and then trashed American troops along with Jane Fonda during ant-war rallys. Get your facts straight. If you believe anything produced by the Obama administration about anything, you had better wake up. Senator McCain knows that any information presented at a " briefing " is pure propaganda and mostly lies. Just like the story about the " disgusting" video which Hillary, Susan Rice, Biden and Obama blamed for the " spontaneous riots " which were carried on for over seven hours resulting in the murders of four Americans. I watched the words come out of Obama's mouth when he addressed the UN….. so I dare you to deny that.

    Why would Senator McCain waste his time sitting in a meeting when he was much more effective addressing the US Senate on the topic of Benghaza?

  46. Linda Sills

    John Kerry is the one that bad mouted the military. You won't find McCain doing such. He is a patriot- Do not try to diminish him as this article is doing. You are buying into the maligning press.
    MCCain was out there as 4 people are dead and without voices. He was trying to be that voice for the killings that didn't need to be except by the error or miscommand of someone.

    Shoot then aim… How can anybody comment on this til a FULL investigation is done? Those republican take anything they can and thet blow it into something that makes them look like idiots. And they wonder why they lost. You go Mr President I have your back and so does America. Take all the time you need to investigate this. It will drive them crazy.lmao.

    What initiatives? The only ones that I can think of is the jobs bill that he never presented to congress, and the budget that got beat in the Senate 98 – 0.Just because you say that it's so doesn't make it so. Why not list a few to enlighten me. I really want to be informed on them, whatever they are. Also, honey, the WH has been proven liars, even soetoro let the cat out of the bag twice during his p.c. this week. How can anybody get the facts from this WH? it's ONLY been more than a month. Just a few problems, or bumps in the road, for your savior. It'll go away, and the dead will never have their story told.
    Just a couple of things. What is a POA, and NOBODY cares or believes your self- proclaimed party preference.

  52. Marc Metal

    GET OFF MY LAWN, DAMN BLACKIES!
    McCain has a history of racism and has turned into a grouchy old man. This week he has been ripping into UN Ambassador Susan Rice calling for an investigation into her roll in Benghazi and earlier this year he wanted an investigation into Attorney General Eric Holder running guns into Mexico.

    McCain, who personally blocked Arizona from celebrating the Martin Luther King Holiday and bragged about it, has attacked Susan Rice for repeating the information that the CIA briefed her and the White House on Benghazi and has attack Eric Holder for stopping the gun running to Mexico that happened under GW Bush and approved by McCain! Rice and Holder are African Americans and McCain is leading the right wing racist charge to take back their country from Obama every sick chance he gets!

    Think of McCain’s’ last big decisions; Sarah Palin, the 2007 US financial situation, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Egypt, etc. He has been wrong time after time and shouts his mistakes on TV every chance he gets.

    Today he was grandstanding complaining he did not have enough information on Benghazi. Of course while he was complaining on live TV he was missing his senate committee meeting being detailed on Benghazi! When he was asked about it he yelled at the reporter on the air for questioning him!

    McCain – time to go before your real military records, which your admiral daddy had sealed, come out and the American public learns why Viet Nam vets call you the mouth of Hanoi.

    False Breaking News, Senator McCain, rushed to hospital, with Similidas, this is when your hind end looks like your face, and you do not know which end goes first. Flash, flash, Lindsay Grahamn, Rush, McConnell, heads are stuck in McCains, rear, as he stopped suddenly to give Ambassodor Rice a raw deal, of lies, and giving the President more threats, with the Press, McCain stopped, and all there heads got stuck all at once.Resign you senial, Charlaton.Thank you gf.

    Real Americans tend to "lose it" when American officials get murdered by Terrorists. Guess that it doesn't bother you though, huh Glenda? And our Govt continues to try out stories that are lies, everyone claims amnesia or stupidity, I didn't know, he didn't know, we didn't know, she didn't know, blah, blah. That may be OK for you, I'm sure that a few more dead doesn't matter a bit to you, and I'm sure that you don't want to know. I'll bet that if any of these brave, tortured and murdered Americans were relatives of yours, you STILL wouldn't care. If a hero like John McCain is losing it, I am too. That's the difference, honey. You've already lost it, and probably never had it to begin with. Shame on you.

I think that you would, as long as soetoro wasn't called out on his lies. Terrorist murders. Torture and rape and desecration of bodies. All in a day's work, eh? No big thing, right? Soetoro's investigating, so it's all good, right?
    You make me want to puke on you and all of your ilk. You couldn't wipe Sen. McCain's backside.

    instead of the heading reading "McCane slamming the President". it should have said McCane stands up for the fallen that the Presldent would rader forget. just like the two coast guards that were shot dead in Alasks last April, never more a word as to what happened to them , no, not a word , The same would be the case of the Libyas casualtys if it was left to the President. It's plain to be seen , by some of the hate comments on here how obama got reelected.

    You women are so dumb you think Barack Obama's Version of Women's Rights being "Girls Gone Wild" is actually women's rights and feel no need to even question deaths of innocent Citizens of our country, but choose only to attack like Obama. Are you even smart enough to question the real issues. I sure found out that the Women of the Elite Duke Health sure do not know how to stick to the real issues or do their own jobs, but your federal government continues to keep them on the top ten NIH funded institutions. Oh, forget Obama's girls are so stupid like the female MDs of Duke that you probably do not even know what the NIH stands for or what HIPAA law is even though Clinton put it on the books and Obama's US DOJ and OIG actually approve of abuse, waste and fraud of our federal tax dollar by a Communist Chinese Chancellor of Duke Health, Victor Dzau, MD, so go ahead ladies go to Duke for a surgery, they love washing their surgical instruments in Hydraulic Fluid and blowing up mental health patients, but called to the attention of the man you Stepford Wives seem to adore, Obama, he just keeps sending them money. Go to his favorite Obama Care institution and get a little hydraulic fluid washing and come to senses. Oh, I do so hope that his corrupt NC FBI, US Attorney General's office, and corrupt Homeland Security Director do put me on a no-fly list with the comic book characters that seem to keep coming out of the closet as federal cops. When do we get to elect these idiots?

    Thank you, Diane, it is nice to know that there are a few women left in the USA that are not some computer clone who thinks that Girls Gone Wild is actually Women's Rights, and yes, indeed, we have a right to demand answers and I think based on history here is the last several months, we as citizens, since we play their elite salaries should be allowed to vote for Directors of the FBI, CIA, Homeland Security, ICE, the IRS, Secret Service, but we will leave this up to Holder and Obama, who do we report them to for public corruption since we know that Perez cannot handle it, Holder cannot handle it, the OIG cannot handle it and Obama cannot even handle one little stupid institution on his top 10 NIH funded Program list called Duke.

The Secret Service must be notified about this if this is true (which I doubt). How is President Obama scum? Because he wants folks to pay their fair share of taxes and not continue to place their tax burder on the Middle Class? Perhaps, because he has a difference of thought than you do? Grow up and learn to RESPECTFULLY disagree with others. This is the sign of a mature and educated individual.

    The only thing John McCain should be ashame of is risking his life for the benefit of so many traitors and communist detractors. Mr. Mendez; I bet you are one of the millions who got a welfare check approved by Obama to get yours and your family votes.

    Joseph Harris Grow up. Are you still in Middle School? Who is Obummer and what is a Dumbocrat? I don't think that we will find these words in the dictionary. However, we do have a President Obama and Democrats. Learn to RESPECTFULLY disagree with other people that have a difference of thought than you do. This is the sign of a mature and educated individual. Stop the complaining. It is time to put you big boy pants on.

    McCain. You had your day a long time ago. It is now passed. Time to go and enjoy the leisurely life. PLEASE! I'm tired of your whining!

  87. Teresa Cartwright

    Joseph, What is this person a sorry a– excuse because he disagrees with you. OMG- OH MY GOODNESS. Grow up and learn to RESPECTFULLY disagree with others. What is an Obama DOLE? I can't find that word in a dictionary. Gee whiz. People have the right to disagree with you. It is time to put you big boy pants on. Stop complaining and act like an adult.

    Joseph Harris : While John Mc Cain was offering his life to serve this country, most of the parents of these posters were hiding from the army and evading the draft. Like Bill Clinton, like Obama's mom, Like Jane Fonda and so many traitors.

  89. Mary Powell

    Bob Taber John McCain not only made a video condemning the United States, but also signed a letter condemning the United States. He was an officer. Both are available to see and read. And yes he was part of the Savings and Loan Failures and left his disabled wife (wasn't disabled when he left) to date an much younger woman, even after she stood by him and worked to get him out of Hanoi. He was a prisoner of war, but what would you say about an enlisted man, much less an officer condemning the US. He is not an honorable man.

    Diane do you have evidence of "fraudulent votings" if so post it, else all you are doing is spewing posts with no real substance. Sort of like Willard who took all side of an issue and his position would change depending on his audience . A real leader takes a stance on an issue and sticks with it. Today the loser was crying about gifts to blacks and Latinos as if no white people were benefit of the plans put forth great man in the white house 1> he saved us from a depression with the bail out of the auto industry 2>health care plan that like it or not moves us into the future or any of the other so called gifts that Willard neglected to mention? This actually smacks of racism. Its funny he had no evidence to back up his statements either just like you.

    The irony of this would be funny if the subject wasn't so serious. Mr. McCain has done many many admirable things through the years and given a lot for this country. He has, however, become an embittered sour loser. I feel badly for him, but to have absolute total amnesia when it comes to Condi Rice yet ready to sink this Rice's career out of bitterness…does not speak well of him. I hope we do find out the complete truth of what happened in Benghazi…but the truth may be as simple, yet complicated as a breakdown in communication. Whenever something horrible goes wrong we try to find someone to blame, when sometimes it's just a series of very unfortunate events.

GET THE F**K OUT OF MY COUNTRY. F**K you and all your retarded followers. People like you are the reason this country has fallen off a cliff. Why don't you just leave and make this country a much better place you f*****g retard. God I hate people like you with such a passion. You disgust me. You're a traitor. Get the F**K out of here. There was no fraud. The only fraud is allowing morons like you the right to vote. People like you are dumb as bags of hair. YOU LOST. YOUR PARTY LOST. YOUR LYING CANDIDATE LOST. Deal with it or get the F**K out of here. Obama won and he won big. Can't take it? Tough!!!! He's here for 4 more years. DEAL WITH IT WHINY F'ING LOSER.

    McCain is a crazy old man who should be led away to the old folks home. He has no idea what he's doing any longer. Remember everyone……he's the guy who thought Sarah Palin was a qualified individual to be Commander in Chief. He's a screwball. He still thinks he's fighting "Charlie" in Nam. Everyone's an enemy. He's a paranoid old man who just needs to go away…..far far away.

    Luis R Vazquez Just because someone supported Obama, does not mean they are on welfare. Mcain did give into the Vietnamese so he could go home. He was involved in the Savings & Loan Debacle during the '80's. He did have an "Affair" with his present wife while married to wife #1, and he should be ashamed of himself for lots of things, including Sarah Palin!! And luis, don't forget to get your welfare check…..

    Angry, righteous angry, based upon a right motive is appropriate; however, McCain is disingenuous. He demands answers but missed the hearing where he could get the answers. McCain is losing his relevance and screaming b/c he is no longer being taken seriously. We all want to get to the bottom of Benghazi…however, many have no interest other than rabble rousing.

  107. Mike Souza

    Should not John McCain back up his words:he said Rice had a responsibility in the Bengaghazi attack yet he takes no responsibility for his voting down money asked for by Hillary Clinton for protection and security of these post. It would seem that he also should have know American diplomate could be attack back when he vote not to give money to update security at dilomatic posts overseas?

  108. Mike Souza

    Its a good thing you were at that meeting;That you cause John McCain couldn't make it!

    Joe: McCain is not an idiot! But I did loose trust in him during the bush years, he has been bought by the far right radicals,the same ones who tried to buy the election and are pissed cause they lost.So now they are putting money into trying to take over the gov. any way they can. I lived though 8 years of bush! I think I can deal with 4 more years of President Obama!

Try watching some othere then fox news.maybe a good fantasy movie.

  112. Rob Ballard

    typical liberal media – instead of seeking answers they blast one senator who did more good on the floor of the Senate rather than waste his time at a spun briefing that was attended by plenty of others that could inform him later of what was said. Why doesn't media demand the same kind of answers and go digging like they do against Republicans? I hope some states seceed so I can find a safe place to live.

    Joseph Harris it never fails to amaze me how people like you insist on being idiots in front of the entire world. If you can't see McCain for the angry old man he is, you need to stay indoors. Stay away from the children. Do not play with sharp objects.

  116. David White

    Diane Humpal Re: your "scum" crack – ya gotta BE IT in order to SEE IT. You are DOOMED to suffer through 4 more years of President Obama, while we all laugh at you. The POTUS was elected because the GOP ran a pathetic LIAR in 2012 and a tired old man with an IDIOT running mate in 2008. LOL

  117. Mary Jean Mayer Golden

    People are way behind in having their anger goosed if they are still not mad about how Bush lied us into invading Iraq and got 4 million of our troops killed and countless others maimed for life. And now we are expected to go ballistic when a situation, admittedly tragic, killed 4 people and there was ambiguity about the hows and whys. If we had taken a little time to get it right in IRaq, we would not have invaded at all because the inspector's report would have told us NO WMDs. Of course, 3/5 of Republican voters STILL believe that there were WMDs, so there is a garguantuan job involved in setting their little pointy gullible heads to the "want the truth" setting for anything. Of course, Obama might have investigated the circumstances of our invasion of Iraq and a bunch of the liars would be in the Graybar Hotel nowadays, but he tried to keep peace among the political parties, and THIS is what he gets for his efforts…that taking that one incident way out of proportion and sociopathically using it to discredit the president. It just never stops…the irresponsibility and the manipulations of the far right.

    Talk about the media protecting their candidate…where are the articles from this same the media when Obama missed over 60% of the Senate sessions…you didn't hear about it during the first campaign didn't hear about during this ccampaign…where was Obama the day when the Benghazi attack were happening…on his way to Vegas!

    And you’re knocking McCain…&^%$*&^ Hippocrates!

  119. Adam Smith

    Oh, I see. Obama misses half of his intelligence briefings in the past year and that is ignored…..McCain misses one Benghazi hearing 2 MONTHS after 4 Americans were murdered and its conveniently news now. This is why Fox News exists.

    You got something negative to say about young men who are intelligent enough to not serve in unnecessary and undeclared wars? I really don;t see anything patriotic about those serving in W's Iraq and Afghanistan wars. My Father served in World War II, but he sure wasn't interested in me serving. And, I was fortunate to receive a medical deferment. No, that is the major problem with have now. And if we stopped spending, just think how much better our budget defecit would be? We don't need any military hawks like old McCain and Lindsey Graham, and Joe Leiberman etc.

The only people that know what happened can no longer tell us. Speculate, conjecture all you want hear what you want to hear as the media fuels the fire.

    McCain would not have to attend a meeting to learn the facts about the amatur in chief's screwup in Benghazi. Now he is holding Petraus's retirement pay over his head to make him cover for him. Anyone with an IQ higher than.
    a mushroom knows the truth about Benghazi. Oduma has been bragging about the great job he did stopping terrorism. This mess would expose the fact that he has no idea of what he is doing. The situation is worse than before he took office. But the obama worshipping media who think their job is to cover, lie and make excuses for 'the one' will never expose the truth. They are not going to cover this scam anymore than they covered 'fast and furious'. So the traitor in chief will get away with letting four Americans die to make himself look good.

    Joseph Harris – Yeah, the majority of the American people who want random entitlements for no reason elected Obama. No wait, but the majority or America is working and getting no assistance of any kind…. MAYBE, it is that Romney was a corporate tool and Obama was the better choice. I am a business owner, and feared what Romney would do to those "lower class" (his words) people. You know, people like you, who make less then 250K per year. As every blue collar American with common sense would have been.

  140. Eliot Cohen

    McCain is a used up, burned out, bitter old man who has never gotten over his humiliating defeat in '08. I remember when he was an admirable maverick, joining the likes of Senator Finegold to craft ground breaking, creative and bold legislation. Now he is a pathetic shadow of his former self. What a shame that he is destroying his own legacy.
