    More than two months after the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, and barely over a week after threatening to block her potential nomination for secretary of state, Sen. John McCain and U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice will meet Tuesday to discuss those September events. In the weeks following the attack, McCain led the GOP’s criticism of Rice’s television appearances recounting the events, pledging to oppose her possible nomination as Hillary Clinton’s replacement. McCain has to some extent backtracked on his criticism. He told The Daily Beast that it was Rice who requested the meeting: “I will meet with you and hear your version of events why you went out and told the American people false information.”
