Many astute conservatives will recall the controversy surrounding John McCain and his meetings with Syrian “rebels” covered by Breitbart News in this Sept. 18, 2014 report by Matthew Boyle titled, “Alleged ISIS Photo Controversy Engulfs Sen. John McCain.”
Take a moment to reacquaint yourself with the issue and the denials put out by Team McCain operatives, when this made the news.
Seeing Red AZ ran McCain Irony, (Aug. 27, 2014) which included a now removed link to the GOP Daily Dose showing McCain meeting with the head of ISIS on a secret trip to Syria. During the meeting McCain was reported to have promised the “revolutionaries” weapons, training, and funding. He referred to them as “freedom fighters.”
Denials by John McCain are worthless. Here he is in a 2008 CBS News clip speaking with reporters in Jordan and exhibiting abysmal ignorance of who the extremists and terrorists even are. He was immediately corrected by far more knowledgeable then-Sen. Joseph Lieberman while an obviously embarrassed Lindsey Graham hung his head.
And although Mitt Romney is inexplicably appearing in Mesa Dec. 12, supporting the very senior senator’s effort for yet another 6-year term after over 3 decades in D.C., McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day, has exhibited difficulty even remembering who Romney is. Watch this 30-second video as McCain confuses Mitt Romney with Barack Obama during the 2012 presidential campaign.
