Skip to comments.John McCain Clashes With Hannity: You And Fox News ‘Were Wrong About Libya’
Posted on 09/14/2012 6:41:37 PM PDT by Evil Slayer
Last night on Hannity, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) clashed with Sean Hannity over whether the host predicted the Libyan violence when he had previously said their American-supported elections would result in a quasi-terrorist state.
How is it that Sean Hannity and a few others of us out here predicted with pinpoint accuracy that the Muslim Brotherhood would be in charge in Egypt? Hannity asked the senator. Their first task when they took over the Parliament was to declare Israel, our closest ally, their enemy.
How is it that the administration with all their intelligence and the CIA how is it that they didnt see this coming? he asked McCain of both Egypt and Libya, before disputing the notion that the Libyans had a free election: They kept telling the American people, this is democracy. I dont view the Muslim Brotherhood as democracy. They want Sharia law implemented now.
Thats not clear that thats true, McCain responded before accusing Fox of repeating a false claim about the Libyan elections:
It was you and people on Fox that said in Libya, We didnt know who they were and lets not help these people. They had an election and they elected moderates. They rejected Islamists. And yes, there are al-Qaeda factors and there are extremists in Libya today, but the Libyan people are friends of ours, and they support us, and they support democracy. So you were wrong about Libya.
I dont think I was wrong about Libya at all, Hannity shot back.
I know you were, McCain responded. They had a free and fair election, and a democratic non-Islamic government was elected. So you were wrong.
I was not, Hannity said. They didnt think the Muslim Brotherhood would take over? This is a known terror organization. We say we are fighting

McCain is such a dickweed and he’s really not a smart man
Juan McLame, still stoopid after all these years.
McCain is treason distilled. He should go back to his hanoi prostitutes.
what is McCains ticket in this..does he get a share of the pie?
He should have retired a war hero. He is a sad man.
He should have retired a war hero. He is a sad man.
Even when Hannity is right, he’s wrong
Which is it McQueeg?
Look at McCain and the shower of liberal talking points coming out of his mouth. What next, will he talk about those evil Israelis “murdering Palestinians”? (or has he done that already and I never saw it yet?)
Cover for Obama. Thanks.
The masses in Libya and Egypt may very well support the US but we’ll never know it. If they speak up, they’ll have their heads cut
Another thought - there are no “radicals” over there - every one of them is equally radical and really is our enemy.
.....and the GOP was wrong about you...nimrod

Drop dead McCain, you’re a waste of oxygen and a pathetic Manchurian piece o’ sh*t.
Think about how FUBAR things are with McCain endorsing and whispering advice to Romney on foreign affairs in the shadow of current circumstances triggered by an Obama inspired and encouraged Arab spring meltdown.
I agree 100%.. he has to try to cover his stupidity of backing Obama in Libya and Egypt..
John McRINO still doesn’t get it. God help us if Romeny is as much of a RINO as MCCain is, and that’s assuming best case scenario that Romeny actually wins.
Congress seems to be obsequiously quiet about the embassy attacks save a random rebel here and there.
McCain’s interview abruptly ended which was fitting whether intentional or not.
History also taught us that even Benedict Arnold himself was a war hero too.
Anything but the Conservative in that Senate seat, because Conservatives are the enemy.
And McCain told us in ‘08 that we “had nothing to fear from an Obama presidency”.
I think anyone who is not a DUer or a politician saw this coming. I did.
Shoot, I said thirty five years ago after Vietnam that our next war would probably be with the moslems. I was not the only one.
If McStain had fought 0bama in ‘08 as hard as he fought a REAL conservative (J.D. Hayworth) in his Senate re-election race), Juan would be President right now.
And I have to say that visual gave me the same vomit-in-my-mouth sensation as when 0bama took the Oath of Office in January 2009.
Everything McCain said was probably correct, but it really does not matter since all the good guys in Libya will not lift one finger to stop the bad guys. Ergo the bad guys are running Libya, and that is just the way it is. Massive FAIL John McCain (and Obama).
McCain is so used to going after conservatives and other Republicans, that he is forgetting where he is on arguments.
...and look how defensive he was, “I’m not supporting the Administration...”
McCain....please retire before you confuse yourself right out of office.
Yes, that’s the problem, isn’t it? He really hasn’t had enough time to make up for the education he almost missed entirely at USNA. Maybe in another ten years, he’ll have caught up with the rest of his class. Funny—there’s a degree of arrogance that can only be compared to One other.
You must remember that McCain graduated 3rd in his class at the Naval Academy. That is, 3rd from the bottom!
There is no fool like an old fool.
After watching and listening to McCain the last few days, it made me think of the U.S. Senator character in Godfather II.
He has been in D.C. way too long.
Graham and McCain are getting nervous that conservatives are leaving behind the neo con nation building philosophy.
Well, he sure was involved in an inordinate number of Navy plane crashes before being shot down!
And he and John Kerry sure were involved in shutting down the investigation of our KIA and MIAs in Vietnam. SOBs both of them.
You and Ben Franklin speak true and wise words.
Hannity should run the youtube video of Mcqueeg, Linsey Gramnesty and Fudd Lieberman in Triplio in 2009, shaking Qadaffis hand in Tripoli - one week before Britain released the lockerbie bomber back to Qadaffi
Oh and Susie Collins of Maine dropping Qadaffi a cute little curtsey because he ignored her
Queeg is an asshole
He certainly has been all over the tube lately. Is he running for something?
John McCain is an idiot!
I once considered him a war hero. He is a Vietnam veteran.
I spent time in Vietnam recently. I know the younger people in Vietnam see our Vietnam Vets as war heroes. They understand the truth about our objective.
But there’s another truth they understand in Vietnam. They would easily prefer to live in their own nation they they would under the Muslim Brotherhood.
So, what’s McCain thinking?!?

I noticed that, too, and I just happen to agree more with Hannity than McCain on this issue. The Brotherhood are bad dudes.
It is just so way past time for McCain to retire. I would think he would have done it sooner so that he could be remembered as a hero instead of a doddering old senile numbskull.
Butt boy for Keating. He should have been kicked to the curb back during the Keating Five scandal.
As I watched Hannity’s show (first time in three years), it was obvious McCain was becoming madder by the second. Just before the commercial break, I could hear McCain sucking in air through clenched teeth, typical of him and others who are becoming enraged. I was surprised by the quick cut to commercial and thought to myself, “did Fox cut off this interview to protect McCain’s image or to head off an escalation of the confrontation or was this a scheduled break”?
Isn’t there a pasture somewhere, prepared for its old RINO?
