On John McCain and cover-ups

Somehow the whole Benghazi thing doesn't quite reek of a coverup. But you know what does?

Patrick Tillman
Jessica Lynch
Iraq "WMD"
Al-Ishaqi massacre
CIA Rendition flights
US Female Military being raped by co-soldiers

There's lots more; that's all my brain can dig out on a holiday weekend. If you recall some of the (many) others, mention it in the comments.
