John Mccain seems to be able to walk among them

They don't go after western politicians, because they know it's useless. As soon as you knock one politician down, another rises up and takes his place. In the west, the politician is just a "position". A normal citizen of the state. And a harder target because of extra security. But, in parts of the world where the politician stays in office for a long time, he becomes a target.
a reply to: tsurfer2000h The troubling thing about that is,that he's probably not the only one .The US govt. seems to be able to find just the wright amount of votes to either block or get through any controversial bill a minority wishes . A large majority didn't want to go to war in Iraq but some minority found a way . If there is a thing called karma or if chickens do come host to roost ,then the US is done like dirt . Maybe that might not be a bad thing for many other countries . Time will tell .
Honestly though John McCain is so irrelevant to most in the US, all he is doing is getting some photo ops for his scrapbook.
