You can dislike McCain and his “bomb Iran” ways all you like, but if you want to attack him do so with substance and truth, not false agitprop. He says enough foolish things that you shouldn’t need to lie about him. Don’t get caught up in forwarding this fraud either or you undermine yourself.
In a meeting Thursday with The Arizona Republic’s editorial board, McCain said a Hezbollah-controlled newspaper in Beirut was the first to make unfounded accusations about the men in the photo.
One of the men with McCain is Gen. Salim Idris, who at the time chief of staff of the Free Syrian Army’s Supreme Military Council. He was removed from the post in February. Another is Mouaz Moustafa, executive director of the Syrian Emergency Task Force, a Washington, D.C.-based group that encourages U.S. intervention on behalf of the moderate opposition and organized McCain’s visit. A third man who had been disputed in the past has since been identified “as one of the brigade commanders for the Free Syrian Army,” McCain said.
He was with the Northern Storm Brigade, a force affiliated with the Free Syrian Army that has battled ISIS, McCain’s office clarified.
aside: why will the spell checker accept “agitprop” but not “agitpropaganda?”
