Apparently quite thick-headed, McCain is not getting the message even as the Syrian rebels are flying the al-Qaeda flag as well.
Here is Senator McCain on Hannity's February 13th television show, doing his best "Baghdad Bob" impersonation, actually singing the praises of the Tunisian government and defending the Muslim Brotherhood's rise in Egypt.
There is simply no way McCain doesn't understand what's going on so these words he's uttering have to be the result of a political calculation. There comes a point, however, when such rhetoric, regardless of how well-intentioned it is, becomes harmful. We passed that point a long time ago, Senator.
McCain's views here are ridiculously foolish. Via Global Post:
