LISTEN: John McCain Snaps at CNN Reporter

Sen. John McCain has been one of the Obama administration's most strident critics over September's Benghazi killings, saying the security breakdown demonstrated "colossal incompetence or a coverup." Just on Wednesday, the Arizona senator held a press conference decrying the lack of information on the incident from the White House.

The problem? While he held that press conference, he was missing a classified two-hour session with administration officials on the Benghazi killings.

Asked about the issue yesterday, McCain angrily lashed out at a CNN reporter. After initially trying to brush off the comments, the reporter, Ted Barrett, pressed for an explanation, to which McCain replied: "Because I have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell me I can or not?"

McCain's staff said the senator missed the meeting because of a "scheduling error."
