President Obama today rebuffed as "nonsense" the insinuation by Sen. John McCain and other Republicans that the administration had engaged in a "cover-up" of botched security planning and response at the American consulate in Benghazi surrounding the attack on Sept. 11.

"Any allegations of cover-up are nonsense, and I've said so repeatedly," Obama told anchor Ron Steele of local TV affiliate KWWL of Waterloo, Iowa, in an interview .

"Look, these are our people that we send into harm's way. There's an investigation being done as we speak, and not only will we find out exactly what happened, but we will bring to justice those who carried out this attack," he said.

McCain has been harshly critical of the administration's security procedures and crisis response in Benghazi, telling "Face the Nation" on Oct. 28, "I don't know if it's either a cover-up or the worst kind of incompetence."
