McCain’s Tricky Hamas Kinship

Responding to Hamas’ recent endorsement of Barack Obama, John McCain borrowed a line from fellow Vietnam vet John Rambo on Friday and vowed that he would be the Palestinian terror group’s “worst nightmare” if elected president. It was red meat for the masses, but has McCain really thought about the impact of the tough talk on his own close adviser, Tom Loeffler? Like Hamas, Loeffler has received boatloads of cash from Saudi Arabia. In other words, if McCain tries to put the hurt on Hamas, he would have to address the fact that it’s funded by the same people that pay his guy.
