Sen. McCain and the Cannibal Jihadist (Massoud Malek, USA, 06/29/14 8:36 am)

Back in May 2013, Senator John McCain, one of the fiercest critics of the Obama administration's Syria policy, snuck into Syria​ to meet with the head of the Free Syrian Army​. ​When he got back from his trip to Syria, he said:

​"It was a very moving experience to meet these fighters who have been struggling now for over two years."

It was Khalid al-Hamad, who became known as the "cannibal Jihadists" after having a friend videotape him eating a human heart! It has also been reported that Khalid al-Hamad called his unit the "Osama Bin Laden Brigade."

​The photo at the link below, taken in May 2013, is reportedly being circulated by ISIS as proof of their legitimacy.

According to The Washington Post, the leadership of al-Qaeda has formally repudiated ISIS, by stating that "​ISIS is not a branch of the al-Qaeda group. It​ does not have an organizational relationship with it and al-Qaeda is not responsible for their actions."

JE comments:  Al-Qaeda repudiating ISIS reminds me of the Nazis doing the same with the Croatian Ustase.  I try to avoid Godwin's Law, but here the comparison fits.
