Lieberman-McCain Strike Again
According to Foreign Policy’s Josh Rogin, Sens. John McCain and Joe Lieberman are “on a surprise trip” to the Turkish-Syrian border to meet with leaders of the Free Syria Army. Rehashing the rhetoric that led the United States into wars in Kosovo, Iraq and Libya, the deadly duo proclaimed:
If America still stands for the cause of oppressed people who are fighting for their freedom, and justice, and deliverance from tyranny, we cannot abandon the people of Syria. We cannot shirk our responsibility to lead. Our deepest values and interests compel us to act in Syria, and we must do so before it is too late.
The only “surprise” is that Israel doesn’t try to cover its tracks better.
