    AP--John McCain polaces bets on video poker game durin War Discussion.

    AP-While the Senate talked about taking a big gamble in Syria, Sen. John McCain took time to place his bets on a video poker game.

    The hawkish Republican — who has advocated striking Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad — was caught by a photographer using an online poker app on his iPhone during a Senate Foreign Relations hearing about the Syrian civil war yesterday.

    He played as the Obama administration made the case for going all-in against the dictator.

    After a picture of McCain’s play time went viral, the senator was criticized for playing poker while war was being discussed.
