Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) are close allies on foreign policy. So close, apparently, that Graham feels comfortable joking about the possibility that McCain would be killed in war-torn Syria:
Best wishes to @senjohnmccain in Syria today. If he doesn't make it back calling dibs on his office.
— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) May 27, 2013
McCain traveled to Syria on Monday to meet with rebels, making him the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit the country in the two years since the civil war began. He and Graham both support arming the rebels in their fight against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
McCain will still be needing his office as he has safely left Syria, a spokesman confirmed.
