Senator John McCain doubles down on being wrong; wants to arm Syrian Rebels

For some reason, John McCain continues to double down on a strategy that would put the Muslim Brotherhood in power in Syria by calling for the arming of Syrian rebels.

Via The Hill:

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) visited a Syrian refugee camp on the Turkey-Syria border Tuesday, as they accused the international community of failing the people of Syria and called for military action against President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.

The pair met with leaders of the Syrian National Council and Free Syrian Army and members of the anti-Assad resistance during their trip to the Middle East.

The senators’ visit to the camp in Hatay, Turkey, was unrelated to a visit from UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan, who has proposed a peace plan that’s supposed to begin taking effect Tuesday.

Annan said Tuesday that the Syrian government failed to send a “powerful political signal of peace,” according to the BBC, and the senators said in a joint statement there was no sign of Assad letting up.

McCain has made quite the habit of being wrong.
