U.S. Senator John McCain arrives in Libya, meets opposition rebels

U.S. Senator John McCain surrounded opposition supporters during his visit in Benghazi, Libya.

U.S. Sen. John McCain, one of the strongest proponents in Congress of the American military intervention in Libya, called on Friday for increased international military support of the rebel fighters in Libya as he visited rebel grounds in Benghazi, a city that has been the opposition capital in the rebel-held eastern Libya.  He said the rebels needed weapons, training, battlefield intelligence and close air support.
Here is a report of Senator John McCain’s high profile visit to Libya.

This visit will no doubt add more momentum to opposition groups and the fact that they managed to get a high profile U.S. member of congress to visit will no doubt help them in their fight against Qaddafi’s forces.
