US Senator McCain calls strike on American diplomats in Libya 'terrorist attack'
US Republican Senator John McCain has claimed that the recent strike on U.S. diplomats in Libya was a 'terrorist attack' and not just a protest spun out of control.
Arizona senator McCain said it's hard to know what exactly took place, but stressed that it was not a mob but a calculated act by a small group.
According to Fox News, he called the perpetrators of the attack 'terrorists'.
McCain's comments came after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers said that the strike was coordinated.
"It just seemed too organized, too well-structured," Rogers said, adding 'there was a high degree of command and control'.
The Libya strike resulted in the death of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.
The bodies of those killed were returned to the U.S. on Friday, in a ceremony attended by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Maryland.
