McCain meets with rebel leaders in Syria

By Cameron Joseph – 05/27/13 01:35 PM ET

Sen. John McCain (R) traveled to war-torn Syria on Monday to meet with rebel leaders, a spokesman for the Arizona senator confirmed to The Hill.

McCain’s visit makes him the highest-ranking U.S. official to enter the country since its civil war began two years ago.

According to the Daily Beast, which first reported the visit, McCain met with Gen. Salem Idris, the leader of the Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army, and spent a few hours in the country after entering through Turkey.

McCain, a leading critic of the Obama administration’s policy towards Syria, has been calling for the U.S. to provide lethal aid to opposition forces seeking the ouster of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The administration has resisted calls from lawmakers to arm the rebels over fears those weapons could fall into the hands of Islamist or anti-U.S. elements. Many Syrian rebel groups have been linked to al Qaeda and other terrorist groups.

  1. Give these ‘bums in dirty nightshirts’ nothing let the Russians, Chinese or the Iranians go broke financing them. If they haven’t changed in 1400+ yrs. only dupes and fools think that they can changed or civilized. They will never leave the 7th century.

  2. IMHO the only winners in these conflicts is the ‘military indu$trial complex’ too many of our young men and women come home in metal boxes ( which they also sell to the military ). others come home maimed and ruined for life. I realize we need a strong military, to do the job and come home. however this nation building and 10 +years of occupation is totally asinine. We leave these wretched cesspools in many times worse off than before, except thousands of lives and billions of dollars have been wasted. Why even bother most of the folks in the ME will hate us forever.
