McCain Hires Controversial Syria Analyst Elizabeth O'Bagy
The Cable ^ | 9/27/13 | Shane Harris

Posted on 09/27/2013 12:55:41 PM PDT by ConservativeMan55

Sen. John McCain has hired Elizabeth O'Bagy, the Syria analyst in Washington who was fired for padding her credentials, The Cable has learned. She begins work Monday as a legislative assistant in McCain's office.

O'Bagy was a young but well-respected adviser at the Institute for the Study of War and had emerged quickly as an important voice among those arguing in favor of intervention in Syria. McCain and others had cited her work publicly before her nascent reputation collapsed when it was discovered that her claims to having a combined masters/PhD were false and that in fact she had not yet defended her thesis.

I’ve looked into the rules and unfortunately Senators cannot be recalled.

It sucks. There may be a way to but I couldn’t find it.

Maybe it’s a very good thing that McCain got elected. He may have started World War III. It seems like he wants the United States at war with every country, no matter what

“McCain Hires Controversial Syria Analyst Elizabeth O’Bagy”

I’m shocked! /sarc.

O’Bagy worked for ISW, founded by Kimberly Kagan.

Kagan’s brother is McCain adviser, Robert Kagan.

Who is Robert married to? Victoria Nuland, former spokesperson for the United States Department of State. (She was nominated to serve as Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs in May 2013.)

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3023686/posts

“Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham were vocal critics of the administration’s messaging after the Benghazi attacks, but on Friday, they issued a laudatory statement about Victoria Nuland”

Is this satire? Well, in the event it is not this is the perfect hire for old lord McCain. I figure she or some like minded rebel rouser has been writing his material all along.

The similarities of lord McCain and prince bama are striking.

McCain can be recalled

Arizona law has a recall process.

He has publicly stated if he is recalled by Arizona voters he will respect their wishes and resign .

I still cant believe he would hire some one who has been discredited as a fraud.

I looked it up and everything I found said a US Senator cannot be recalled.

It would be great if they can be recalled..

That would be McCain bowing to a non-binding “vote of no confidence,” not a true recall of a Federal office-holder (which is unpossible). Watch for him to renege on any pledge to resign.

And this is why we need term limits. McCain turns conservative 6 months before the primary, raises millions of dollars with his Washington connections, and once he wins he turns into a RINO again!

Maybe this will help. I'm not sure if I am violating any rules of the forum by posting this, but this page definitely says that an Arizona Senator CAN BE recalled. Roughly 460K signatures are required to start the procedure though. http://www.dailypaul.com/299048/recall-senator-john-mccain
