What do you guys think of this statement?  Why would he say that?



Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) today issued a statement essentially conceding that he was wrong in accusing the White House of changing U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s talking points on Benghazi for political purposes.
 
Former CIA Director David Petraeus told lawmakers last week that the CIA’s assessment that al Qaeda was responsible for the Sept. 11 attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi was taken out of Rice’s talking points after an interagency review. McCain and his allies then claimed the White House took out the talking points because it supposedly undercut the Obama administration’s narrative that it had severely weakened al Qaeda.
 
But Intelligence officials told CNN yesterday that the intelligence community was responsible for the changes made to Rice’s talking points. The Director of National Intelligence spokesperson said that the White House did not make any “substantive changes.”

But now that every angle of McCain’s attacks have been completely debunked, all he has left is to complain about not being told that intelligence officials didn’t give him this information sooner.

From Susan Rices wiki page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Rice


Rice went on leave from the Brookings Institution to serve as a senior foreign policy advisor to Senator Barack Obama in his 2008 presidential campaign. Rice took a disparaging view of Obama's Republican opponent in the campaign, John McCain, calling his policies "reckless" and dismissing the Arizona Senator's trip to Iraq as "strolling around the market in a flak jacket

I wish that old grumpy bastard would retire already.   Issuing a statement is a pathetic way to admit a person is wrong.    McCain knows very few people will read it so he won't look like a complete ass and can save face.

I knew this would happen

the only "scandal" is how McCain and Graham and a few others tried to manufacture a scandal for political gain

Which part of the article says McCain "backs away from Benghazi conspiracies"?  Is there a quote from McCain?

He's using the Sarah Palin school of press releases... 5 minutes before everyone goes on vacation/stops looking.   She announced she was quitting gov job on July 3rd.   She announced not running for president about 10 minutes after Steve Jobs died (seriously, she called repub radio host immediately to release the news so nobody would notice).
