US Senator John McCain posing alongside insurgents in Syria! During his recent illegal trip to Syria from Turkey\'s \"Bab Al-Salameh\" border crossing, Senator McCain met with militants that he described as quote \"brave fighters who need our help\". However, two of the insurgents McCain shared his photo op with were identified by freed Lebanese hostages to be members of the notorious - \"Northern-Storm Brigade\" - a group implicated over the abduction of nine Lebanese Shia pilgrims more than a year ago. According to the Los Angeles Times the insurgents called on the US Senator to provide them with \"heavy weapons, set up a no-fly zone in Syria, and conduct airstrikes against the Lebanese Resistance movement Hezbollah\".
