Meghan McCain said her father’s quest for answers in Libya is personal, but not for the reasons everyone is saying.
McCain told News/Talk 92.3 KTAR’s Mac and Gaydos Tuesday her father, who rarely shows raw emotion, got very emotional talking and sharing personal stories about his close friend, Ambassador Christopher Stephens, who was killed in the attack in Benghazi, Libya that took place on Sept. 11, 2012.
“My father had slept next to [Stephens] in the Embassy in Libya so I think if anything it’s personal for my dad in that way,” McCain said. “Is there love lost between my dad and President Obama? Of course not.”
McCain went on to say that despite her father’s differences with the president, his desire for answers stems from the mystery that still surrounds the four Americans deaths’ in the Benghazi attack.
“I don’t think it’s personal in the sense that my father has a personal vendetta against President Obama but I do think it’s personal in the sense that he was very close, personal friends with Ambassador Stephens,” McCain said.
McCain said this tragedy needs to be investigated to bring justice to the families who lost their loved ones in the attack.
“We’re going to let four young men and an ambassador who was truly one of the great people trying to bring democracy to the Middle East, we’re going to let them all die and then we’re not going to find out exactly why or how? For, me it’s just sheer logic,” McCain said.
