The breathtaking lack of understanding of the jihad crosses party lines.
Back in 2013, I sharply criticized John McCain for his vocal support of the jihad rebels in Syria. He adamantly insisted that these were moderates. Moderates only to fantasists or the delusional.
McCain’s ignorance was laid bare back in May 2013 when Senator McCain snuck into Syria to meet with the so-called opposition. In the meeting, John McCain proudly posed with some of those “rebels.” I wrote this at the time:
… two of the men posing with McCain were involved in the “kidnapping of 11 Shiite pilgrims one year ago.” This is what happens when clueless polticians inject themselves into situations in which they clearly do not belong. What was McCain thinking, sneaking into Syria to meet with jihadists?
Senator McCain went to Syria to meet with the opposition.
The Free Syrian Army and Al Nusrah, the two main armed factions of the
Syrian resistance are jihadist groups run by the Muslim Brotherhood and
He was warned by us repeatedly. But the blowhard blew harder. In an Anderson Cooper interview, Senator McCain claimed, “We can identify who these people are. We can help the right people.” And who does he think the right people are?
Those “right’ people, ISIS, are running this photo as part of an online ad campaign. John McCain the face of a thousand beheadings.
Isn’t it nice to know that the US government is talking out of one side of their mouths and doing the complete opposite on the other side? Remember in 2013 when John McCain made that trip to Syria to hang out with ISIS radicals? Now, ISIS is using that photo of them hanging with John McCain as propaganda for themselves.
…This 2013 photograph of John McCain is being circulated by members of ISIS as a photo of him with members of some of their members in Syria… The poster does not specify which of the men is actually from ISIS or “Al Qaeda In Iraq” as they were once called.
