Steve Benen is steamed by the partisan tone of McCain and Butters' statement:

Remember hearing about the "blame America first" crowd? Well, say hello to the "thank America last" crowd.

[…I]f McCain and Graham really want to complain about why “this success was so long in coming,” maybe they can talk more about their trip to Tripoli two years ago, when both McCain and Graham cozied up to Gaddafi, even visiting with him at the dictator’s home, discussing delivery of American military equipment to the Libyan regime. Both senators shook Gaddafi’s hand; McCain even bowed a little.
