Sen. McCain: Shouting 'Allahu Akbar' Like Saying 'Thank God' (RealClearPolitics)

BRIAN KILMEADE, FOX & FRIENDS: I know you met with General Idris, who is a defector from the Syrian Army, who has come out. Some say he does have ties to Muslim extremists, I don't know. Listen to this video of a Syrian, it looks like a fighter jet being shot out of the sky. Listen to what they say afterwards.

KILMEADE: I have a problem helping those people out if they are screaming that out after a hit.

SEN. JOHN MCCAIN (R-AZ): Would you have a problem with American person saying 'thank God, thank God.' That's what they're saying. Come on. Of course they are Muslims, but they are moderates and I guarantee you that they are moderates. I know them and I've been with them. For someone to say Allahu Akbar, it is about as offensive as someone saying thank God.
