Fox’s Brit Hume: ‘Rand Paul Doesn’t Know Jack About the Syrian Rebels!’

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume thinks outspoken anti-war Republican Rand Paul “doesn’t know jack” about the Syrian rebels; but one of his more hawkish GOP colleagues does.

After hearing several soundbites in which Sen. Paul warned of the potential for the United States to be align itself with al-Qaeda by aiding the Syrian Free Army, Hume exclaimed: “I suspect Rand Paul doesn’t know jack about the Syrian rebels!”

“I’m not sure that any of us know enough about them,” Hume told his Special Report co-panelists.

And so who does the Fox analyst believe knows the truth about the rebels? Sen. John McCain.

“He thinks he knows them, and he says they’re not a bad lot,” Hume said. “At least that’s the testimony of someone who’s been there.”

McCain visited Syria several months ago and reportedly met with the leader of the Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army. Following that trip, he has spoken out in support of the rebels, saying he believes they are “mostly moderates.”
