Who has two thumbs, had aspirations of being President and promised to try to gain powerful weapons for ousted Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi two years ago? If you said John McCain – you’re right! That’s right “my fellow Americans” – as McCain likes to say – the former GOP candidate for President told the dictator he’d help obtain American military hardware, according to a U.S. diplomatic cable posted Wednesday by WikiLeaks.
Of course it was just Sunday that Grampy McSame – his nickname from the 2008 campaign because he kept promising to do things just like George and Dick – said Gaddafi’s ouster was “so long in coming” because the U.S. did not use the “full weight of our airpower.”
Grampy travelled to Libya in 2009 with his turncoat “independent” buddy Joe Liebermann, and “pledged to see what he could do to move things forward in Congress,” the cable said.
So, Mr. “I love America” was willing to grease the skids for a known terrorist leader and sponsor of terrorism, really nice. Who’d Grampy and Joe think the weapons would be used against? They knew they’d be used against Gaddafi’s own people, against Israel and probably against Americans, but the two so-called Senators were evidently more concerned about provided defense contracts for their masters instead of protecting their constituents and our allies.
McCain and Liebermann were also accompanied by two other GOTP senators, Lindsay Graham and Susan Collins. It’s time for McCain to bow out and fade away, as well as Joe, Lindsay and Susan. How could any United States Senator talk to Gaddafi about helping to procure weapons for him? They’ve willfully attempted to aid a known enemy of the United States. It’s disgraceful and indefensible, so please Grampy; spare us your platitudes on how the President should have done things.
