Transcript of Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) remarks after meeting with U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and Acting CIA Director Michael Morell on Nov. 27, 2012: 

Senator Graham and I and Senator Ayotte had a very candid discussion with Ambassador Rice and the Deputy Director of the CIA.

We are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn’t get concerning evidence that’s overwhelming leading up to the attack on our consulate, the tragic deaths of four brave Americans, and whether Ambassador Rice was prepared or informed sufficiently in order to give the American people the correction depiction of the events that took place.

It was clear that the information that she gave the American people was incorrect when she said that it was a spontaneous demonstration in Tripoli by a hateful video. It was not, and there was compelling evidence at the time that that was certainly not the case, including statements by Libyans as well as other Americans who are fully aware that people don’t bring mortars and rocket-propelled grenades to spontaneous demonstrations.
