McCain and Graham, more on their cozy cozy to Qaddafi.
Wikileaks released a cable appears that Senators McCain and Butters, along with several others, had a very chummy meeting with Qaddafi almost exactly two years ago. Money quote from Stephen Webster’s writeup:
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) promised to help former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi obtain U.S. military hardware as one of the United States’ partners in the war on terror…The cable does not mention anything about the senators pressing Gaddafi for democratic reforms.
Worth noting because, as Chris has highlighted, the two used Qaddafi’s fall to bash Obama for not going after the Great Loon sooner and harder. The NATO effort may have been a tad bit more stymied if the good Senators had their way.
