Senior United States Senator John McCain makes a speech in support of republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at the Bay of Pigs Museum and Library in Miami, Florida. In the speech he accuses Obama of covering up for the lack of security when four serving Americans and the ambassador died in Bengasi, Libya. He said that the president, as 'commander in chief' has the 'Solemn obligation to care for all of our citizens to make sure that. when our people are serving overseas we do everything we can to preserve their safety and protect them'.
'This president of the United States is either wilfully deceiving the American people or he is too incompetent to be commander in chief', he continued. 'There was continuous reports going back to Washington DC about the lack of security there and nothing was done.'
