    That has been done before. I haven't heard, on the news anyway of President Obama or anyone else in the administration saying or giving a comment on the Senators visit, have you?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Sure about that?

    Al-Nusra does not operate under the FSA command structure and they've actually engaged in skirmishes with each other over disputed territory.
    They have however fought side by side, and many FSA leaders claim they are "the special forces of the revolution"

    Though, to the poorly informed such as yourself, they may appear to be one and the same.
    I never claimed they were "one and the same"

    But hell looks like the FSA might be having a defection problem with more people goin go the Al-Nursa front

    McCain needs to retire.

    There is so much of what I call back channel, no one can be certain what is or is not going one. Sometimes silence provides the answer. But like I always say, time will tell. Thanks

    Now what are you doing? Supporting fascist and fascism again? I really start to wonder about you lefties . J/k. We actually agree.....We have no business in this civil war unless assad decides to attack Israel to gain support from Islamic nations.

    When that war hero is a U.S. Senator engaging in a controversial action on Memorial Day, you can hardly expect people to give him deference just because he is a war hero. These actions could affect many people's lives, and worrying about him being a war hero just isn't on the radar.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
