McCain and Montenegro: The anatomy of a conspiracy theory

Source: Antiwar.com
by Justin Raimondo

"Just in case you thought the conspiracy theory that Russia secretly controls the US government is exclusively an affliction affecting the Democratic party, Sen. John McCain's recent performance on the floor of the US Senate should disabuse you of this optimistic notion. Responding to Sen. Rand Paul's blocking of a vote in favor of the accession of Montenegro to NATO, the failed former GOP presidential candidate let it all hang out …. Sen. Elizabeth Warren was rebuked — and silenced — by Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell because she read a letter from Coretta Scott King that called into question the motives of Jeff Sessions, then a Senator and a candidate for the office of Attorney General. Surely McCain's outburst was an even more egregious violation of the rules than Warren's, and yet McCain was allowed to proceed uninterrupted. Perhaps this is an example of 'warmonger's privilege.'"
