      ...this video of McShame with ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi says different.

      Baghdadi is the leader of ISIS, not one of it's victims.

      McCain should have listened to the great thinker Caribou Barbie and not 'paled around with terrorists'.

        ....with Baghdadi and McCain, Baghadadi circled in red.

        McCain get's no breaks from me. Not ever.

          on the Saudi gravy train. Look what it's gotten the Clintons.

          This is perfect:

          "America's great ally, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is involved: the fundamentalist, misogynist hellhole that produced most of the 9/11 attackers and funds most of the world's Wahhabi madrassas; the country that gave us public beheadings, absolute monarchy, the Taliban, Osama Bin Laden and the whipping and jailing of rape-victims. What could possibly go wrong with that?"
          The country where family tree diagrams only list the males.

          Salafi creeps, the worst. These folks including al-Baghdadi make fetishes of copying imaginary details of the personal habits of The Prophet. Add elements of narcissism and paranoia, you've got a caliphate.

      ISIS and those McCain met with.

      The world is bad enough as it is, you have no right to make it any worse.
      Lamb chop, we can quibble what to call it, but I think we can both agree it's creepy.

        I always think of the Russian Revolution as a template for this.  Factions always start hating to have to share their toys once they enjoy success.  It is no wonder that ISIS decided they no longer needed the other, weaker players.  By the time McCain did his tour, there were already rumors of ISIS demanding fighters declare allegiance to them and their ideology and even rumors that a couple of rival fighters who refused were executed

      •  McCain did meet with the ISIS leaders. (2+ / 0-)

      and disingenuous. McCain has never been a supporter specifically of ISIS and it's leadership. However, the diary author has a McCain phobia and can't help themselves.

        I call it 'common decency'. This shameless, amoral, mendacious and spiteful old hack has done more damage to America than Al Qaida ever did. From Keating to Caribou Barbie, the man has been a nightmare.

        To detest McCain isn't a phobia, it's good sense.

      •  Well, I have a McCain phobia, too. :D (0+ / 0-)

        I agree that it is disingenuous and inaccurate, though.

        There's enough real stuff out there to beat McCain over the head with - no need to stretch the truth, as it just casts a bad light on truthful accusations.
