Barack.Obama, John.McCainSenator John McCain (R-AZ) may have come across as a few cards short of a deck in the twilight hours of the 2008 presidential showdown with then Senator Barack Obama, but his unique and intricate understanding of foreign policy, stemming from his famed naval career and the atrocities he experienced from 1967-1973 as a prisoner-of-war in the “Hanoi Hilton’ during the Vietnam War, has always been respected.

This is why he has been thrust into the spotlight in the aftermath of the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11. Not only was he a close friend of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed during the attack along with 3 other Americans, but he has not been shy about what he considers to be an absurd response by President Obama.

See his statements on CBS ‘This Morning’ below:

“It’s disgraceful that we would say an attack such as this, on its face, was the result of a demonstration,” McCain said on “This Morning.” “To say this was a spontaneous demonstration is really beyond belief and shows a fundamental misunderstanding, not only of warfare but of what’s going on in that part of the world.

“C’mon honey, bring your mortars, we’re going to a spontaneous demonstration,” McCain said in a tone dripping with sarcasm. “It was obvious, it was obvious, that this was a planned attack, that they carried heavy weapons, mortars, RPGs. Clearly, it was not a demonstration.”

See footage of attack below:


In the weeks following the attack, many conservatives have labeled it a terrorist attack planned on the anniversary of 9-11, and have politicized it in attempt to show Obama as being weak on foreign policy and incapable of keeping Americans safe — the same criticisms levied against Bush 43 in the aftermath of 9-11.

White House press secretary, Jay Carney, has called the Benghazi conflict an act of terror on multiple occasions, though President Obama has side-stepped that language himself:

“It is, I think, self-evident that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack,” said Carney on September 20.

Matthew Olsen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, also said it was an act of terror:

“Yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy.” “We are looking at indications that individuals involved in the attack may have had connections to Al Qaeda or Al Qaeda’s affiliates; in particular, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.”

What remains to be seen is, with 39 days left until the election, how will a “terrorist attack” on his watch affect the POTUS at the polls — if at all?
