Newsmax Touts Veterans In Congress Opposing Syria Strike, Ignores McCain
Topic: Newsmax

Melanie Batley writes in a Sept. 7 Newsmax article:

Republican congressmen who have witnessed the horrors of war for themselves as combat veterans are among those leading the way in opposition to American involvement in Syria.

Reps. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, Chris Gibson and Michael Grimm of New York, Doug Collins of Georgia, Ron DeSantis of Florida and Steve Stivers of Ohio have all come out saying they oppose air strikes.

Batley curiously makes no mention of the most prominent Republican who supports intervention in Syria: John McCain.Batley did note that "two GOP veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, Arkansas Rep. Tom Cotton and Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, have declared their support for military intervention," but made no mention of McCain.
