just in case you forgot: John McCain is an asshole
“It's terrible when innocent people are killed. We regret that. But we have to do what we think is necessary to take out Al Qaeda, particularly the top operatives,” US Senator John McCain told CBS television's Face the Nation.
“We regret it. We understand the anger that people feel, but the United States’ priorities are to get rid of Al Qaeda, and this was an effort to do so. We apologize, but I can't tell you that we wouldn't do the same thing again.”
Those were McCain’s words, but what is his rationale?
