Lindsey Graham jokes about John McCain dying in Syria

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:

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.
