McCain Goes To Libya

Oh, my mistake. I inadvertently placed this two-year-old video of Sen. John McCain and his Republican buddies (Senators Joseph Lieberman, Susan Collins and Lindsey Graham) going to stroke Qadaffi's - ah, ego - to get him to purchase US military systems for his country. I really like the little bow that McCain gives to Qadaffi. He must have had a stroke and forgotten this visit when he  recently traveled to Libya to tell the rag-tag Rebel Alliance how great they were, and how THEY should be getting America's weapons. Similarly, Sen. Lindsey Graham calls for increased NATO bombing of Tripoli on CNN's "State of the Union."

Oh, but I forgot, it's the retired generals and admirals who are the problem in the defense industry...  at least I don't see them selling weapons to both sides of a conflict. Hat tip to Steve Benen.
