    McCain misses classified briefing...

    about the Benghazi attack. What was he doing at the exact time he missed the meeting? Publically demanding answers about the Benghazi attack.

    Senator John McCain is demanding answers on the Benghazi attack, but his office tells ABC News he missed a classified briefing on the subject because of a "scheduling error."

    The classified briefing was held on Wednesday before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee - of which Senator McCain is a member - and lasted three hours. It featured testimony by officials from the State Department, the Pentagon, the CIA and the National Counterterrorism Center.

    During part of the briefing, McCain was holding a press conference demanding answers about the administration's handling of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on Step. 11 that killed four Americans, including US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. McCain called on Congress to launch Watergate-style hearings to get to the bottom of what happened.

    "More than two months after the Benghazi attack, there are still many unanswered questions," McCain told reporters in the Capitol Hill press conference. "While we await the findings and recommendations of the administration's internal review of the Benghazi attack, it's essential for the Congress to conduct its own independent assessment."

    At precisely the same time McCain was holding that press conference, the briefing for the Homeland Security Committee was happening in another part of the Capitol building.

    Why did he missing the briefing on a subject he has been so adamant in demanding answers on? McCain's office says his absence was unintentional - an oversight.

    "Senator McCain was absent from the hearing due to a scheduling error," McCain spokesman Brian Rogers told ABC News.

    Even if he had attended, McCain was unlikely to be satisfied with what he heard.

    "Ignorance is not an excuse" were the words Goodell used when describing why those involved in the Saints bounty scandal would not avoid punishment.

    Seriously, when is this country realizing that the right has no intention to better this country nor to do politics which is good for this country. They don't even pretend anymore.

    McCains "service" has been greatly exaggerated. Weird how almost every POW outta Nam that survived, looked like they were in a concentration camp. McCain comes out fat and peppy. Saluting and posing. Dudes dad was a powerhouse which assured him somewhat decent treatment. Which this is my opinion.
