Just thought I might look up Treason in relation to Unites States law.

18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

Doesn't look good............ Quick, Start a War or something.

Kinda crazy to think that there is a woman in my country that got 7 yrs for killing two people accidentally with her driving stupidity and if you waged war against your own country, you get off with less of a penalty. Doesn't seem like much of a deterrent. I thought treason was punishable by death.

the mentality of US leadership

Request for medical examination?

American investigative journalist Wayne Madsen says Republican Senator John McCain’s “actions do not comport with those of a sane person,” probably he is suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and needs psychiatric care.

McCain affected by PTSD, needs psychiatric care: Madsen

Obama didn't want to do it, so the CIA did it without his approval anyway.

Either way, the puppet masters got a new puppet to wiggle in front of cameras while wielding knives and heads to control the masses which thrive on emotional stimulation.

Why the hell is McCain not in prison yet? Everywhere he appears there is war and thousands of dead people. He collaborates with terrorists and extremists. He is one dangerous individual who has strong connections and is a danger to the whole world. Just retire him and lock him up!!!

Basicly the same story as with Bin laden, first helping/training them and after a created ''boogeyman'', it's always good to have a boogeyman to get the war on terror going (the military industry can go on on full steam and get funded enough).
At least that's what it looks like to me.

McCain is an older gentlemen and he is going to make a fool of himself big time soon.

Of course to many he has already done that

But not to the Presstitute media.

What’s happening is that this older man is conflating Isil with the “moderate” Syrians as he goes around discussing the issue.

Right-wing pundits are, as usual, twisting this around ass-backwards.

McCain Makes Revealing Slip on Fox: Obama Didn’t Want to ‘Arm ISIS’

The senator proceeded to seriously misspeak when he described a 2013 meeting in the White House in which everyone on the administration’s national security team “recommended arming ISIS.” But, he explained, “the president, by himself, turned it down.”

What McCain likely meant to say was that Obama’s team, including then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, wanted to arm the “moderate” Syrian rebels in their fight against President Bashar al-Assad, but Obama did not want to. Van Susteren neglected to correct his mistake.

As Obama decided at the time, the lack of distinction between the “moderate” rebels and the Islamic extremists, including ISIS, who were fighting Assad made the idea of arming any opposition in Syria an extremely risky proposition.

Fox Noise is all too happy to let this error go uncorrected. The one bucking to arm ISIS from Day One was McCain himself.
