McCain Reacts to Obama's 'Daily Show' Interview, Calls Remarks 'Regrettable' and 'Disingenuous'
During last night's interview on "The Daily Show," President Obama addressed the attack in Benghazi, Libya, saying, “Every piece of information that we got as we got it we laid it out for the American people, and the picture eventually gets fully filled in and we know how to prevent it in the future.”
He went on to say, “If four American get killed, it’s not optimal. We’re going to fix it. All of it. And what happens, during the course of a presidency, is that the government is a
big operation and any given time something screws up. And you make sure that you find out what’s broken and you fix it.”
This morning on Fox and Friends, Sen John McCain (R-Ariz.) took issue with Obama's choice of words, particularly calling the deaths of four Americans "not optimal."
"The 'optimal' line is of course very regrettable and makes me a little sad, but for him to say that 'every piece of information that they got they laid out to the American people' is one of the most disingenuous statements I've ever heard," said McCain.
