    And of course the words ISIS were added for effect. Duh.  ISIS is the same group McCain and Lindsey Graham wanted to arm.  

    That is the whole point of this story, which should be on every news channel but oops. we live in America where hedge funds control what gets said or not said on our tele's.

      You can't post a 2.5 year old article, make it sound as if it was done this week, add words to people's statements "for effect", and consider yourself to have any ethics.  That's why you should take this down.  

      Cynicism is what passes for insight among the mediocre.

        Anyone can see the date, and everyone knows the history, so it is not a distortion.  The parenthesis (ISIS) in the article are to assist the reader make the connection that gee, McCain did almost force this nation in to a great mistake....

        I think your interpretation of ethical is very shallow... As stated, the diary is fully true... McCain wanted to armed the forebears of ISIS, and the administration was afraid those arms would fall into Al Qaeda's hands.  

        Not calling that out would be unethical in my book...  Not calling out McCain and Lindsey Graham for what they are, is unethical in my book.

    •  No, they are totally different groups (0+ / 0-)

      In fact the groups McCain wanted to arm found and were defeated by ISIS (or Jabhat as the case may be)
