Transcript: Sen. John McCain’s remarks on U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice

Edited by Jenny Jiang

Transcript of Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) remarks on U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice at a press briefing on the Benghazi consulate attack on Nov. 14, 2012:

Let’s see what happens here, but we will do whatever’s necessary to block the nomination that’s within our power as far as Susan Rice is concerned.

Well, that’s a judgement that people made at the time and I respect their judgement.

My judgement at this time is that 4 Americans were killed. And the information that the U.N. Ambassador conveyed was clearly false.

It was overwhelming evidence that it was completely false. And she should have known what the situation and circumstances were and not tell the world on all the Sunday morning talk shows.

I was on one show and right after that the Libyan President of the National Assembly simply said, “No, it’s an Al Qaeda attack.” Didn’t she even listen to them?

So all I can say is everybody makes their own judgement. We’ve made ours.
