During a heated discussion about whether there was a potential cover-up surrounding the Benghazi attack, Senator John McCain turned the tables on ‘Meet the Press’ host David Gregory, pointedly asking him, “I’m asking you, do you care whether four Americans died? The reasons for that? And shouldn’t people be held accountable for the fact that four Americans died?”

When Gregory pushed back on McCain’s accusations of a cover-up, the senator responded, “The information has not been forthcoming. You can obviously believe that it has, I know that it hasn’t.”

Jim Pinkerton called Gregory’s apparent defense of the Obama administration “par for the course for NBC.”

Alan Colmes asked, “What’s wrong with David Gregory trying to get an answer from John McCain about what exactly is the cover-up? That doesn’t mean he’s defending the Obama administration. McCain to then accuse Gregory of not caring about the deaths of four Americans was totally out of line.”
