Rice Meets with McCain and Cohorts Nov. 27

Update Nov. 27: The three musketeers double down on their criticism of Susan Rice. Jay Carney says (paraphrased) McCain and his pals are obsessed with Susan Rice for some reason and barking up the wrong tree for answers. She answered for her part, and now the remaining questions of what happened in Benghazi must be answered by the people who had direct responsibility. Carney says McCain's attacking the wrong person.

I imagine this is a saving face meeting for McCain, Lindsay and Ayotte, who have behaved like small children.

U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice will meet Tuesday with three key Republican senators to answer questions about the Sept. 11 attack at the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) will attend the meeting, which was requested by Rice’s office, according to Senate aides. WaPo
