John McCain’s “UNModerate” Rebels

A recent report out of Syria indicates that Senator McCain’s definition of “moderate” may not be in line with the rest of the American public ….

U.S. Senator John McCain’s judgement of character seems to be a bit flawed.  Back in May 2013 he posed with accused Lebanese kidnappershis office denies he did this knowingly.

Also seen in the picture is Mouaz Moustafa, an individual that was involved in the Libyan and Egyptian uprisings and appears to work as the good Senator’s handler in navigating the region.  More on Moustafa  HERE.

As President Obama pushes for support in regards to a military strike against Syria’s Assad regime, Senator McCain has become his cheerleader on the right. 

Appearing on the talking head circuit, Senator McCain is proclaiming the Syrian rebels the U.S. is supporting to be “moderate”.

Brutality of Syrian Rebels Posing Dilemma in West

From New York Times
By September 5, 2013

The Syrian rebels posed casually, standing over their prisoners with firearms pointed down at the shirtless and terrified men.

The prisoners, seven in all, were captured Syrian soldiers. Five were trussed, their backs marked with red welts. They kept their faces pressed to the dirt as the rebels’ commander recited a bitter revolutionary verse.

“For fifty years, they are companions to corruption,” he said. “We swear to the Lord of the Throne, that this is our oath: We will take revenge.”

The moment the poem ended, the commander, known as “the Uncle,” fired a bullet into the back of the first prisoner’s head. His gunmen followed suit, promptly killing all the men at their feet.

This scene, documented in a video smuggled out of Syria a few days ago by a former rebel who grew disgusted by the killings, offers a dark insight into how many rebels have adopted some of the same brutal and ruthless tactics as the regime they are trying to overthrow.

As the United States debates whether to support the Obama administration’s proposal that Syrian forces should be attacked for using chemical weapons against civilians, this video, shot in April, joins a growing body of evidence of an increasingly criminal environment populated by gangs of highwaymen, kidnappers and killers.

NOTE:  the video mentioned in the article can be viewed from the above link – it is very graphic.

COMMENT:  Soviet communists had their media proponents in free Europe and the Americas.  They were coined “useful idiots”.  The Islamists certainly have theirs.  The good senator’s judgement should definitely be questioned.
