McCain calls Libyan rebels My Hero's .....
For Arizona's sake let's say a prayer that the rebels don't turn out to be AL Qaida' or Hamas, which is distinct possibility according to reports. But then McCain can always change his mind and say he didn't to say that.. it was a mis-statement. # be


Sen. John McCain praised Libya's rebels Friday as he arrived in the opposition stronghold of Benghazi and the top U.S. military officer warned the fighting was heading for "stalemate." • "They are my heroes," McCain said of the rebels as he walked out of a local hotel in Benghazi. He was traveling in an armored Mercedes jeep and had a security detail. A few Libyans waved American flags as his vehicle drove past. • McCain, one of the strongest proponents in Congress of the U.S. military intervention in Libya, said he planned to meet with the rebel National Transition Council, the de-facto government in the eastern half of the country, and members of the rebel military.
