27. What Is McCain's Point

I have never understood it. Really.

He is still bitter from losing to Obama in 2008 so he goes looking for things to criticize but I don't see what his point is nor what difference it makes anyway. The CIA was protecting sources so the data they gave the public was at odds in some ways with the classified data they had on file.

Lastly, this was not a major attack. A single rogue American soldier killed more than 4 in Afghanistan not that long ago. I'm not saying those attacks are the same. I'm only bringing it up to put the size of the attack in perspective. Both are small potatoes in the big picture of things.

By all means investigate to locate lapses in security but I'm sure that is ongoing anyway. Indications are that this was not a pre-planned attack but an attack that was hastily put together to be carried out under the cover of other demonstrations.
