Oh, goodie: McCain Makes Secret Trip to Syria to Visit Rebels

As least he will do less damage here while he is gone.  Here we go again, putting our noses in other people's business.

Republican Sen. John McCain has quietly slipped into Syria for a meeting with Syrian rebels.

Spokeswoman Rachel Dean confirms the Arizona Republican made the visit after it was reported by The Daily Beast. She declined further comment about the trip.

The visit took place amid meetings in Paris involving efforts to secure participation of Syria's fractured opposition in an international peace conference in Geneva.

Two years of violence in Syria has killed more than 70,000 people. President Barack Obama has demanded that Syrian President Bashar Assad leave power, while Russia has stood by Syria, its closest ally in the Arab world.

McCain has been a leading proponent of arming the rebels and other aggressive military steps against the Assad regime. He has criticized Obama administration policy there while stopping short of backing U.S. ground troops in Syria.

McCain met with leaders of Free Syrian Army units, who called on the United States to step up its support for the opposition. The rebels asked for “heavy weapons, a no-fly zone, and airstrikes on the Syrian regime and the forces of Hezbollah,” The Daily Beast reported.

    You are being misled by the bankers concerning the rebels and McCain is helping the bankers.

    Read the REAL truth behind the usa supporting the rebels. The article is long and very detailed, but well worth the read. It tells you a completely different story than what the mainline media tells you, and its' the truth.
