After laying out his vision for future leadership, McCain called for American air support for the Syrian opposition, but “no boots on the ground.” Right. People who have paid attention to what passes for US foreign policy know better than to believe this crap from McCain. Quoting President Bill Clinton, he said: “’There are times when America, and America alone, can and should make the difference for peace.’” Wow, now that's sterling endorsement if I've ever read one. Clinton, no less. Clinton is the gold standard of credibility. I wonder if McCain is this stupid or is he simply lying? Thanks, voters of Arizona for returning this jerk to office.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) called for “real American leadership” in Syria this afternoon at the American Enterprise Institute.

Delivering a somber speech, he noted early on that the conflict in Syria has led to 12,000 casualties. The senator spoke about his recent visit to Syria, saying that he feels haunted by the suffering he witnessed. From there, the senator called out the Obama Administration for sitting on the sidelines and failing to even “lead from behind.”
