VIDEO: Citizen Tells Sen. McCain He Should be ‘Arrested and Tried for Treason!” For al Qaeda Support
Ouch. At a recent town hall event held by Senator John McCain (Maverick, Arizona) one participant said to McCain’s face that the Senator should be “arrested and tried for treason” for supporting al Qaeda terrorists in Syria.
For those unaware, McCain was one of the biggest boosters of the Syrian rebels currently facing Syrian strongman Bashar al Assad who has been killing thousands of his own people in a civil war for some time, now. McCain felt the US should support the rebels facing Assad, but as it happens at least half the rebels facing Assad are members of al Qaeda, America’s biggest international foe, not to mention those responsible for the murder of 3,000 Americans on 9/11/01.
Arizona citizen Blaine Cooper called McCain a traitor for sending arms and money to support the Syrian rebels, many of whom are al Qaeda, our worst enemies.
The exchange went on for five long minutes that had McCain squirming in his shoes.
Senator McCain has not made a public decision yet but he is holding town halls across Arizona with an eye toward deciding if he should run for another term in the US Senate.
If the resistance he is getting from this man is any indication, McCain may want to retire!
What do you think? Has John McCain outlived his usefulness to the United States? Should he retire? Or run again?
