On last night’s show, Rachel Maddow took a look at the war being waged by John McCain and a few allies against the potential nomination of United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice for the position of Secretary of State.
McCain, who appears to spend most of his time as a Fox News talking head, has questions, and as you would expect, Maddow does an excellent job providing answers.
MCCAIN: Who changed the talking points that was used by Ambassador Rice?
MADDOW: The intelligence agencies acknowledged last week that they were the ones who changed the talking points.
Here’s a link to where Maddow was getting some of this publicly available information.
MCCAIN: Why was references to Al Qaeda left out?
Here, Maddow quotes the Associated Press, reporting on the testimony by David Patraeus.
AP: “…a reason the references to al-Qaida were deleted was that the information came from classified sources and the links were, and still are, tenuous.”
