Obama Camp Keeps McCain Aide’s Terrorism Remark Alive

Associated Press

9/11 Commission member Richard Ben-Veniste calls Charlie Black’s comments “a candid and very disappointing glimpse into the thinking of one of McCain’s closest advisers” on an Obama media call.

Falls short of calling on the McCain camp to fire Black, but says “I think the remarks were so out of place that they call for some recalibration in the thinking and perhaps a greater adherence to principle here in staying away from the politics of fear.”

The top strategist told Fortune that another terror attack would be “a big advantage” to McCain’s campaign. Read all the details here.

Plus: Rush Limbaugh criticizes McCain on Tuesday’s radio show for distancing himself from Black. Says it is “obvious” Black’s observation is true, and that Obama would also benefit from another Hurricane Katrina .
