U.S. Senator Visits Country In Civil War

Senator McCain Visits Middle East
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Sen. John McCain visited rebels in Syria, his communications director Brian Rogers confirmed to CNN. The Arizona Republican is the highest ranking elected official from the United States to visit the war-torn country.

McCain is the leading voice in Congress for a greater U.S. role in ending Syria's civil war, which has been waged for more than two years. He has suggested establishing "safe zones" for Syria's rebels and taking out the regime's air assets, along with providing lethal weapons to Syria's opposition.
