Alleged ISIS Photo Controversy Engulfs Sen. John McCain

by Matthew Boyle, Breitbart
September 19, 2014


Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and his aides swear the Syrian “rebels” he was pictured last year with weren’t ISIS members or supporters, and the mainstream media is by and large buying the 2008 GOP presidential nominee’s story.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has endured brutal criticism—media fact checkers, reporters, and political figures have shredded him—for questioning just who McCain posed with.

But a closer look at the situation tells perhaps a different story than McCain’s office or the mainstream media have pushed.

The criticism of McCain centers around how the Arizona senator met with Syrian rebel leaders in May 2013 when he visited the country. McCain posed for photographs with those people, and since then rumors have sprouted up across the Internet that he met with ISIS or some other terrorist kidnappers or nefarious forces.

    Real white house guards using real bullets butborder police need to use bean bags.

    Usa Money for brazil to drill but resrictions in usa drilling
    (I doubt drilling is safer in brazil but lines criminals pockets vs usa business)

    Guns to gang bangers but no guns for legal gun owners

    No mention of criminals w weapons – but citizens need to register!

    Dem Senators dont like guns and want to restrict them but they have “armed” security!

    Rights to illegals but non for usa

    Pelosi wants wages increased but why is her biz employees exempt?

    Cover up for benghazi gun running but a beer summit for “has been” professor in a mano second!

    Excuse of ypu tube on benghazi when attack happened- middle east people dont speak english, and guns are not permitted! Howd did they organize so well?

    Tsa feeling up 4 yr olds and elderly but illegals board without ID. Rememer terrorists in flight 1 did not have ID???

    (Its called abortion burning on skin of infant and drowning them in saline till they choke to death. And for those who say its not alive- then ehy do you have to kill something not slive?)

    Dont have to show ID when vote but need it to enter democratic convention.

    Can claim to love the nation and grandstand on hard earned tax payors while posing with enemy??? Actions, pictures prove true intentions of a man- words are just words- have no meaning- look at actions of a man – it defines him.

  • Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

    It is actually sad to see what has happened with Senator McCain. I am mystified as to why those with authority over him such as his daughter or wife do not seek legal recourse to stop his idiocy

  • Robert Gibson says:

  • DouglasDauntless says:

    How else do you think the Syrian Rebels ISIS or Al-Qaeda or what ever got the poison gas, cannons to shot the gas, arms, money and training to kill the civilian population. By Traitors like John McCain who serve the Government and not the people of the United States of America. Doing Obama’s dirty work to ,kill our troops and make chaos our country and the World. Siding with the Muslims because he is a Muslim. Obama wants the Jews killed in Israel and a Caliphate in Place so he can be the ruler of the World.

  • well, heck — the USG was helping some diplomat at the Syrian embassy give these guys false passports or at the very least turning a blind eye even before there WAS a Syrian “opposition” — this was a group born in the USA and now we’re openly arming them against a legal government. What’s wrong with this picture?

  • Ddenney1 says:

    The MSM likes Mc Lame and he never met a photo op he did NOT like!!! I do not understand why Arizona keeps putting this RINO in!!! He is as bad as REID!!! Ask the Apache’s about his integrity sometime and how he stole a Mountain from them for a telescope on their sacred lad!! The see what he got out of it!!!!

  • ijohnc1 says:

    McCain is as big a narcissistic as the guy in the white house, of course he would deny meeting with ISIL/ISIS some how he has morphed into a war hero, which he is not, and believes like the guy in the whitehouse he is a world authority and beyond questioning.
    Too bad the people of Arizona are saddled with this guy, if it is possible they should recall the guy as a turncoat and dereliction of duty, for not upholding his oath of office to defend the constitution.
    Besides running the dumbest campaign for President ever, he appears to be in early Alzheimer’s.
    “What do you call a Senator who has been in the Senate too long?”
    This is a rhetorical question. Answer: You call him home!

  • savage24 says:

    McAmnesty has a hard time distinguishing between the good guys and the bad guys, having his picture taken is what is important. He also doesn’t know when to shut his mouth.
