Do you seriously think he is not read in? Your measly point is
no point at all.

I have no fantasy. I know that four people are dead, and that there is
no excuse for it. The simple facts of the case as they are known now
are damning enough. The people were left to die, and they were put
into position to die because of political posturing. And you bringing
McCain up to distract from that is trying to score political points.
By the way, you *do* recall that you posting that ridiculous
accusation against McCain is what started this little dustup?
