McCain: Media given facts before we were

On AC360 Wednesday, Sen. John McCain responds to Hillary Clinton telling reporters that an accountability review board will look at all aspects of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. She made a point of saying that they won't be "cherry-picking"  stories and documents about the incident. Clinton was referring to e-mails sent on the day of the assault to the White House, State Department and FBI identifying an Islamist group as taking credit, which they later denied.

"I'm all for a thorough and complete investigation, but certain facts are known and there continues to be contradictions within the government. And we now find out, we members of Congress, rather than being briefed, we find out from the news media," said McCain. He told Anderson he doesn't expect that the results of the review board will be made public until after the November 6 election.

    John McCain is one to say something should be investigated , maybe he should have thought about that four years ago.
