McCain enters Syria illegally


U.S. Senator John McCain, a rabid opponent of President Bashar al-Assad, illegally slipped into Syria for a few hours on May 27, 2013, near the northwestern city of Idlib.

The trip was organized by the Syrian Emergency Task Force, which had notified the competent service of the State Department.

Senator McCain met with officials of the Free Syrian Army.

In announcing this visit, White House spokesman Jim Roberts appeared to be extremely surprised.
