WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. John McCain, one of the strongest proponents in Congress of the U.S. military intervention in Libya, is heading to the rebel stronghold of Benghazi for a meeting with forces fighting to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi, an aide told The Associated Press.

McCain was scheduled to arrive in Benghazi on Friday, said Brooke Buchanan, a spokeswoman for the senator.

In case a McCain aide lurks here: DON’T go there, McCain!!! I despise you as a RINO politician who gave us obama, but respect you as a human being and a war hero for surviving what you did. DON’T PUT YOURSELF IN THAT POSITION AGAIN. Seriously, you’re meeting with Al Qaeda, whether you know it or not. They aren’t worth it, and your “friend” obastard wouldn’t lift a finger to save you!

Any chance he will like it there and just stay? He could become Defense Minister for the rebels or something. Naw, they’d see him for what he truly is and send him packing. He couldn’t even fool a bunch of rag heads in the sand.

“Douchebag, and a RINO....”

Considering all that weight he gained in the Hanoi Hilton I’d say he’s more like “King Rat”.

Meddling? The POS wholeheartedly supports 0bama's war. Shucks, McCain wants to go further than 0bama, and I wouldn't be surprised if he eventually supports deploying ground troops to Libya.

He’s still simmering over losing the election, so he wants to seem relevant. I’m sure zero asked him to go. You know, Juan has to be a good boy and do what this “harmless” poser in the WH asks. It might even give him brownie points he so wants. He isn’t the darling of the MSM any more. Trump has stolen everyone’s thunder right now.

This is the headline story at Spiegel Online:

Spiegel Online / US-Senator McCain feiert libysche Rebellen als Helden ... US Senator McCain Praises Rebels as Heroes.

Spiegel's POV was that the US was dragged into the conflict, backed off, and now, with the drone deployment against Ghaddafi's troops and this visit are climbing back in.

They report that when McCain was asked by a reporter at a press conference if it bothered him that Al-Qaeda was known to be amongst the rebels, he answered, "Why should it? They (the rebels) are my heroes ... "Wieso? Sie (die Rebellen) sind meine Helden."

I'm just the messenger, here, BTW.

This is just crazy.

He skipped off holding hands with Lindsey Graham to meddle in Uzbekistan, and cost our efforts in Afghanistan dearly...

You can add to that insane, senile and traitor. This man has no clue who he works for or that there is a whole country beyond Washington.

Yo Arizonans—Does McCain ever return to Arizona? And if he does does he make any meaningful attempt to connect with voters there?

“...but respect you as a human being and a war hero for surviving what you did.”

I am truly beginning to doubt about his status as a war hero. Maybe he did believe that statement he signed. How else can we explain the damage he’s caused this country including giving the US a president who is determined to destroy us. Maybe we’ve been not looking at the correct number of Manchurian Candidates.
He’s been set up by the commies to think they like him, and his choice of Sarah for VP was an accident that almost ruined their plan. Remember it was McCain’s staffers that muffled her, and wouldn’t let her tell the truth about Obozo. After realizing what she could become in this country, they have been active, and willing participants with the media in trying to destroy her.
I am beginning to think McCain being Obozo’s opponent was not an accident, and just two years ago that statement would have had me looking for the tin foil for my new hat.
