Video: McCain's Visit to Libya in April a Bigger Disgrace than Thought

Frankly, it was despicable enough when Arizona Senator John McCain visited Benghazi, Libya this past April and told al-Jazeera that the Libyan rebels were his 'heroes.' Now this. A mere weeks before McCain's visit to Benghazi, rebels beheaded a man in front of the city's main courthouse, a place McCain was filmed walking in front of during his visit. As the man was being beheaded, chants of 'Allah-hu-Akbar' can be heard. Quite disturbingly, in the CNN footage (below) that shows McCain walking in front of where the beheading took place, he can be seen smiling as the crowd surrounding him screams the same thing.

Via Daily Caller:
Evidence collected by a young London-based organization called Human Rights Investigations indicates that when Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain went to Benghazi in April to express his support for Libyan rebels, he visited the site at which the rebels publicly beheaded an alleged pro-Gaddafi “mercenary” only weeks before.

Shortly after the February outbreak of the rebellion against the now-deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, videos began to emerge showing gruesome atrocities committed by rebel forces in the parts of Libya under their control. The horrific abuse was most frequently directed at black Africans and dark-skinned Libyans, adding a racial component to the rebels’ actions.

Documented atrocities included lynchings, a summary execution of a group of up to 22 prisoners, and — in perhaps the most harrowing video clip distributed online — a public beheading.

In the video, the beheading victim can be seen suspended upside down in front of a burnt-out building. A crowd of hundreds is gathered around to watch; many of the spectators are filming the proceedings on mobile phones.

As one of the rebels begins sawing at the already blood-soaked man’s neck with a long knife, cries of “Allahu Akbar!” ring out. Like countless black African migrants and dark-skinned Libyans, the beheaded man appears to have been accused by the rebels of being a pro-Gaddafi “mercenary.” The Dutch public broadcasting service NOS reported that some in the crowd shouted “He looks like he’s [black] African!”
Here is the video of McCain just weeks later, walking past the site of that beheading. I'm sorry, folks but McCain's visit to Benghazi makes Neville Chamberlain look like John Wayne.

Granted, McCain was in a potentially volatile situation during his visit; he had to say and do things for expediency. Rep. Leo Ryan had to do that too during his visit to Jonestown in 1978 but that didn't stop his murder at the hands of Jim Jones's Red Brigade. Unless McCain was doing some sort of political reconnaissance for the military while just appearing pander to evil like this, he should have stayed home.

If this is to be taken at face value, which is all we have available, this is beyond disgraceful behavior from a US Senator. Two things to look for in this video. One, after a man places a red banner around McCain's neck, take note of the look on the woman's face - presumably a McCain aide - as she removes it. She looks petrified to me. Second, take note of how McCain smiles as the crowd chants, 'Allah-hu-akbar.'

Remember, during this very same trip, McCain referred to the Libyan rebels as, 'my heroes.' Fast forward to the 1:30 clip to watch:

To say McCain's trip to Libya was his Neville Chamberlain moment may one day end up being considered an insult to Chamberlain.
