With the general election now less than two weeks away, this evening at nine "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes the return of John McCain and his candid political insight and perspective.
As the September 11th attack on the U.S. Embassy in Libya continues to be a polarizing topic amongst the campaigns, the Arizona Senator offers his assessment of the controversy surrounding the call for more troops:
"There was – there was clearly requests by our ambassador, not Facebook posting but by our ambassador for better protection. His last message was about that," says McCain of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, one of four Americans killed in Benghazi. "His diary that was found, not by our people, but by CNN reporter, talked about his concerns. I think it’s a very legitimate question, why didn’t we do something about it?"
McCain, a former war veteran, questions the lack or support on the ground, and denounces the theory that that attack was anything other than terrorism:
"If we knew that there was danger why didn’t we have forces on alert in case something that would happen and then why did they send out our ambassador to the UN and why did the president go on these programs and speak to the UN and continually claim that it was a hateful video that triggered a spontaneous demonstration. You can’t assume anything, but either a cover up, or colossal incompetence which is, which is absolutely ridiculous and outrageous."
Tune in tonight at nine to hear more from McCain, as the former GOP presidential nominee reveals his reaction to fellow Republican Colin Powell again endorsing Barack Obama.
