White House Was Aware of John McCain's Trip to Syria, Looking Forward to Talking to Him

McCain has supported intervention nearly as long as the conflict's been ongoing


Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) informed the White House ahead of time before traveling into Syria to meet with that country's rebels, an administration official said Tuesday.

"The senator made the administration generally aware of his trip," White House Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri said on MSNBC. "It's something that now that it's completed, we look forward to talking to him about the developments he saw on his trip."
