RINO McCain: Boston Bombing Is Proof, The Battlefield Is Here, Spying Is Good, Paul Is Wrong

June 10, 2013 by  

Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) continued what is seemingly an unending mission to discredit any member of the GOP more conservative than himself — a very low threshold by most accounts — on Sunday, saying that his least favorite wackobird, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), has lost his credibility in fighting global terrorism.

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” McCain made the case that overreaching government surveillance in the vein of the National Security Agency’s PRISM initiative is not “necessarily wrong” because it operates under court oversight. That’s contrary to Paul’s continuing claims that the government’s spy program is an “extraordinary invasion of privacy.”

“Just prior to the Boston bombing, he said the battlefield was no longer in America,” McCain told CNN host Candy Crowley of Paul’s position.

The elder Senator was referring to remarks Paul made in April.

“It’s different overseas than it will be here,” Paul said two months ago. “Which gets precisely to the argument I have with some other Republicans who say, ‘Well, the battlefield is everywhere, there is no limitation.’ President Obama says this. Some members of my party say the battle has no geographic limitations and the laws of war apply. It’s important to know that the law of war that they’re talking about means no due process.”

    They were already spying before the Boston bombing . It didn’t prevent that from happening. We need to get rid of McCain and the rest of the Rebublicans who think like him.

  • Sherri

    If they would have listened to the Russians the bombing would not have happend in Bostan so I think Rayn Paul was right

  • Dennis Ardell
