Quite a reason to rely upon him

For a guy who never yet met a war he didn't want to either create or become entwined with John McCain sure trusts his judgment (along again, naturally)
U.S. Senator John McCain said on Wednesday, two days after meeting with rebels in Syria, that he is confident the United States can send weapons to fighters in Syria without the risk they will fall into the wrong hands. "We can identify who these people are. We can help the right people," McCain said
Yeah, about your awesome observation skills:
A spokesman for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Thursday that it would be "regrettable" if the lawmaker had posed for a photograph with Syrian rebels involved in kidnapping Lebanese Shiite pilgrims.
Time for that "Meet the Press" invite.

Time for another round of "What if a Democrat had done this?"

Let's say, just for funsies, that some Democrat had posed for a photo op with a bunch of who-knows-who in Syria, and a couple of them turned out to be folks of less than savory character? I believe the hyperventilating of the Nitwit Brigade would cause another outbreak of tornados and hurricanes across the southeastern United States.

But Sen. Walnuts does it? "Oh, he didn't realize those freedom fighters might actually be ruthless thugs. Not his fault." And Nitwit Brigade heads nod in unison like so many novelty dog toys in the rear window of so many Oldsmobiles.
