Senator John McCain has been shilling for al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood opposition on Syria. He is more clueless than complicitm but his refusal to consider the facts makes him very dangerous.
Even when he made his stealthy trip to Syria, his photo-op showed him posing with kidnappers and killers. One would think that would have given the ornery old fool great pause, but that would have been the reaction of a rational man.
John McCain has hired the disgraced Elizabeth O’Bagy, a lobbyist for the jihadist oppositon in Syria. She opposes calling Al-Qaeda a terrorist group.
The GOP is imploding, and that's a good thing, because we need seismic change. The old guard has got to go, and they won't go without a mealy-mouthed fight. The bigger they are, the harder they fall. The tougher they talk, the quicker they crawl. With moves like this by McCain and men of conviction like Senator Ted Cruz willing to stand up, we may be witnessing the long-overdue death of the old guard.
McCain Hires Controversial Syria Analyst Elizabeth O'Bagy The Cable | 9/27/13 | via Free Republic (thanks to TH)
Sen. John McCain has hired Elizabeth O'Bagy, the Syria analyst in Washington who was fired for padding her credentials, The Cable has learned. She begins work Monday as a legislative assistant in McCain's office.
O'Bagy was a young but well-respected adviser at the Institute for the Study of War and had emerged quickly as an important voice among those arguing in favor of intervention in Syria. McCain and others had cited her work publicly before her nascent reputation collapsed when it was discovered that her claims to having a combined masters/PhD were false and that in fact she had not yet defended her thesis.
