The U.S. and its allies should provide more air support and financial aid to Libyan rebels, Senator John McCain said in Benghazi after President Barack Obama sent armed Predator on missions over the nation.

Those seeking to oust Muammar Qaddafi’s regime are “patriots who want to liberate their nation, they are not al- Qaeda,” McCain told a press conference today in the rebel capital city.

The Arizona Republican said North Atlantic Treaty Organization states need to “urgently” increase close air support for rebel ground operations. He also said the rebels’ Transitional National Council should receive some of Qaddafi’s frozen assets to fund its operations and that the Council should be recognized as Libya’s government

Like Sgt. Shultz, McPain should follow suit - “I know nothing, I see nothing, and I say nothing!”

What a wacko. This guy will die some day from lack of attention. He has no business being there. Hey, Wacko, why don’t you go to CUBA, and announce it’s time we liberated them from communism. After all, we only have a base right in the country.

This from the same guy who assured us that we shouldn't be "skeered" of an Obama presidency. John, retire please!

Why is McCain doing this? Neo-con money makes the Republican Party go round. They, along with big RINO businesses, are the two power-brokers in the Republican Party.

With his eye on running for president some day, new Republican senator Rubio has proposed an authorization of force resolution that would, in effect, declare war on the the government of Libya. It would specifically say that our goal is “regime change”.

The real question is “Would it help the United States?”, but the neo-cons don’t seem to care about that. Some war supporters have publicly admitted that there might be ties between the rebels and Al Qaeda.

Nothing new for McLame, just like when he supported his Islamo-Narco Terrorist KLA pals.

They are Patriots Juan say’s after spending a day with them kissing his ass to get more air support.

How can Juan know who they are when he flies in for a couple of hours and talks to people who want to fool him.

And exactly how does McCain know that? They told him so and he believed them?
