Senator John McCain, one of the most ardent and vocal supporters of a United States military strike in Syria, was caught playing video poker on his phone during a Senate hearing on President Obama's request to use military force in Syria. Senator McCain has been front and center calling for the US to respond with force to send Syrian President Bashar al-Assad a strong message after it was determined that his government used chemical weapons against its own citizens, but seems to have been unconcerned about the witness testimony from Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, along with Secretaries Kerry and Hagel.
