Sen. John McCain is calling for a Watergate-style congressional committee to investigate the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya after President Barack Obama failed to answer direct questions about the attack.
“It’s this kind of B.S. that I continue to find his leadership just lacking,” Meghan McCain told KTAR’s News/Talk 92.3 Mac Watson and Larry Gaydos. “I mean just answering a direct question, which he’s not doing, makes me think he’s hiding something.”
Sen. McCain said Wednesday that “The American people deserve answers to these and other questions related to the Benghazi attack. Congress has a unique Constitutional role to play in getting to the truth of this matter as well as well as compiling the lessons of this tragedy so it’s not repeated.”
McCain said she can’t speak for what her father does or doesn’t know, but feels he is in the right for questioning the president.
“An ambassador, in my opinion, has been slaughtered by terrorists and insurgents and there just really hasn’t been any explanation,” she said. “It was dodged during the election. I think he and Sen. Lindsey Graham are totally in the right to call the president for real answers.”
During Obama’s first press conference in months he said, “If Sen. McCain and Sen. Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me.”
