During an interview Tuesday on “Fox and Friends,” U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., downplayed the significance of Syrian rebels exclaiming “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar,” to celebrate success by comparing the phrase to Christians.
“Would you have a problem with American Christians saying, ‘thank God, thank God?’” McCain asked. “That’s what they’re saying. Come on. Of course they’re Muslims, but they’re moderates.”
An inexplicable comment that prompted Debra Burlingame to respond via Twitter — she is the sister of Charles “Chic” Burlingame III, the pilot of the hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 that was flown into the Pentagon by al Qaida terrorists on 9/11:
“Allahu Akbar” is the last human sound on United 93 cockpit voice recorder as it screamed into ground at 580 mph. http://t.co/K1mBArdHsC

As usual, Twitter users were quick to offer their input on that matter:
@DebraBurlingame McCain is practicing Taqiyya. What part of “Kill The Infidels” don’t these people understand? Clueless/dangerous/Evil?
