John McCain Went to Syria

[Content Note: War.]

I have now twice read this Daily Beast story, "Exclusive: John McCain Slips Across Border Into Syria, Meets With Rebels," and I still can't tell if sitting Republican Senator John McCain met with Syrian rebels with or without the knowledge and sanction of the US President. It doesn't seem to be an official diplomatic mission, since various news outlets are describing it as an "unannounced" and "surprise" visit.

So, basically Republican Senators are just doing whatever the fuck they want now, irrespective of the sitting President's wishes or strategies? Cool.
