John McCain Admits He’s “Intimate” with ISIS

John McCain made an appearance today on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News. The senator admitted to some things in the appearance that should have people rethinking our involvement in fighting ISIS in Syria.

As I noted in an article earlier today,

The ‘moderate’ opposition to ISIS in Syria just signed a non-aggression pact with them, meaning that they will now fight together to topple Assad. So unless America and our war hungry allies are planning on completely manufacturing new rebels from Syrian refugee camps in Turkey, we have no friends in the region.


McCain’s infamous selfie with ISIS fighters.

However McCain, having met intimately with ISIS in his trip to Syria, thinks we should send them arms anyway. He says that reports about Rebels joining forces with ISIS to fight Assad are not true because he met them and is in contact with them on a regular basis. Why in the hell would John McCain be in contact with ISIS?

18 U.S.C. 2339B of the US Patriot Act prohibits,

“providing material support or resources” to an organization the Secretary of State has designated as a “foreign terrorist organization.” The material support ban was first passed as part of the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 (AEDPA). The provision’s purpose is to deny terrorist groups the ingredients necessary for planning and carrying out attacks. Congress was concerned that terrorist organizations with charitable or humanitarian arms were raising funds within the United States that could then be used to further their terrorist activities. The provision outlawed any support to these groups, irrespective of whether that support was intended for humanitarian purposes.

By this measure, John McCain and other members of the government have violated the Patriot Act and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

This is a completely Orwellian state of mind to be in. Unless that is, if the truth of the matter is that this whole conflict in Syria is not truly about ISIS, and really about toppling the Assad regime. Then it would make sense.

The truth is that Senator McCain helped the US government create ISIS in the last two years in order to topple the government of Syria. America created ISIS and is now prepared to fight ISIS. This is perpetual war. This is Madness.

Then McCain had the nerve to ice the cake by comparing going to war in Iraq and Syria to Vietnam; but he’s actually right about that. Iraq has been this generation’s Vietnam, and it’s about to get a whole lot worse if these blood thirsty pundits and politicians have their way.

President Obama says there are no boots on the ground. What are the 2000+ soldiers and 10,000+ security contractors wearing then? Sandals? Tennis shoes?

The actions taken in Iraq since the renewed bombing began have already cost the US half a billion dollars. Operations are expected to last years and will likely lead to ‘mission creep’, as McCain predicts and embraces. This means we will likely get pulled fully back into Iraq and possibly Syria if Congress doesn’t rethink their march to war.

  2. First item, Senator McCain never said he was in contact with ISIS all the time. He said the statement about a pact between ISIS and the moderate rebels was untrue because he's in contact with them all the time. He may have been referring to the rebels. Second item, Obama is a pathological liar and is conspiring to steal Syria's natural gas resources, just as they did Iraq's oil supply. ISIS destroyed the pipeline that fed oil from northern Iraq, through Syria to Europe and through Jordan to Haifa, Israel. Also, Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, secured a top position in one of Ukraine's largest gas companies! Where there's smoke, there's fire and America has bigger problems than ISIS ~ Russia just teamed with China to confront U.S. threats. They are creating a new currency with BRICS so checkmate on Obama!

  7. Yeah, lets go kill 'em over there before they come over here and "kill us all" LIke Lindsey said. We already HAVE them here Lindsey – there home grown and call themselves the Bloods, the Crips, the 18th St Gang, Mexican Mafia and 70 thousand other small gang name flareups. There have way over 700,000 compared to the 34k Isis claims and they kill more people in the one year than Isis could kill in a decade – just in chemical weaponry (drugs) and guns! They don't call children they have murdered in cross fire or hooked on drugs collateral damage or victims – they just say "we all die sometime"
    They have and can get more money to finance there groups than Isis. They are financed by American citizens buying drugs and faith that the American people won’t mess with gun laws. Isis find gangs, Survivalists and anti-government groups easily recruited on social media, with a choice of joining them over there or staying within their own country and following orders.

    Look up the facts FOX and stop being the mouthpiece and drama queens for war mongers and radicals. Look at the odds of you getting killed by Isis or by a gang member. While the Senate is looking over seas for terrorists who claim they will take over our country – OUR terrorists are taking over block by block.

  10. No he didn't. He armed FSA who backed the SNC who agreed to the natural gas pipeline that Iraq and Jordan alreafy signed consent for… stealing Syria's oil. FSA, however, proved ineffective against Assad and many battalions fled, with their weapons to the protection of JAN who then were absorbed by ISIS or sold their weapons for food to ISIS. Seriously, I hate McCain as much as you do, but warping the truth or spinning it is causing problems… everything becoes so blurred people stop caring about the truth because they don't know what to believe anymore. Keep to the facts and we'll get our smoking guns 😉

  15. He will be tried before a court-martial? No, because all our state is a dummy. A dummy built on the FED & IRS & Wallstreet. Your real president lives in Israel.
