In the past few days we have been hearing a lot about the fellow who lost four limbs in Iraq. He has two new arms grafted on by a team of surgeons, apparently successfully.

I can’t help but recall the fiasco that was Iraq. Recall we invaded Iraq searching for weapons of mass destruction; weapons the U.N. inspectors told us were not there and they were not. The point at hand is that Senator John McCain was a big rooter for the invasion that cost this man his arms and legs. We are also reminded that McCain was hip deep in the savings and loan fiasco that cost taxpayers millions of dollars.

So I wonder were he gets off harassing Hillary Clinton about Benghazi, admittedly a sad but understandable bureaucratic bungle?
