Sen. John McCain has been carrying so much water for his friends in the mainstream media that he now has to state for the record to Republican audiences: “I hold no brief for al Qaeda.”
Well, that’s a relief.
It turns out, the only reason McCain is demanding that prisoners like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed — mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, the beheading of journalist Daniel Pearl and other atrocities — be treated like Martha Stewart facing an insider trading charge is this: “It’s all about the United States of America and what is going to happen to Americans who are taken prisoner in future wars.”
