John McCain’s ‘Heroes’ flying Al-Qaeda flags in Gadhafi’s Hometown

Please feel free to post anything John McCain has gotten right relative to the ‘Arab Spring.’ Do you remember how, while in Benghazi, the Arizona Senator said the Libyan rebels were his “heroes” during an interview with al-Jazeera? Now, about one year later, those rebels are flying Al-Qaeda flags in Gadhafi’s hometown.

Via ABC News:

A new video has surfaced online that purports to show a convoy of Libyan military and police vehicles — more than two dozen in all — rolling through the hometown of late dictator Moammar Gadhafi while bearing a flag similar to the infamous black banner of al Qaeda.

It was not immediately clear when the video was shot, but according to the accompanying caption written by a self-identified pro-Gadhafi supporter, it was taken in the coastal town of Sirte and shows 29 vehicles — everything from SUVs labeled “police,” “Sirte,” and “rebels” to a couple full-sized fire trucks. A handful of heavy machine guns are mounted on some of the military-style trucks. More than a dozen of the black banners long associated with al Qaeda whip in the wind.

Ladies and gentlemen, John McCain’s ‘heroes.’

Here is McCain one year ago. Those who say hindsight is 20/20 miss an important fact. Many of us knew better well before McCain said this.

Here’s something else Mr. McCain got wrong.
