Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) released a joint statement today:
“We commend Prime Minister Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders for the role they played in reaching today’s ceasefire. We also are encouraged by the responsible leadership role played by the President of Egypt and his government. President Morsi deserves credit for successfully bringing an end to the violence and preventing further loss of life on both sides.
So…Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been shuttling like mad between Jerusalem and Cairo to broker this agreement. What do the three Senators have to say for the Obama Administration’s efforts?
Above all, the recent fighting in Gaza underscores that this is a moment in history when the future of the Middle East has never been less certain – and when the actions or inaction of the United States will be critical to determining what path this vital region takes. …[W]hat happens in the Middle East will impact America’s vital national security interests for the foreseeable future, and stronger, smarter American leadership is desperately needed. There is no pivoting away from that fact.
Wait…so, they are praising leadership coming from Israel and Egypt, and they turn around and, essentially, apologize for the weak and dumb American leadership?
That’s, like…practically an apology tour!
Why do these three stooges hate America?
