( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Jon: WE TURN NOW TO THE

ONGOING CIVIL WAR IN SYRIA.

WE'RE ACTUALLY GOING TO TALK

ABOUT MICHAEL DOUGLAS' CANCER

LINGUS.

( LAUGHTER )

ALL RIGHT, WE'RE DOING SYRIA.

I'M SORRY.

IT'S AN INCREDIBLE COMPLEX AND

MURKY SITUATION THAT MAKES IT

DIFFICULT TO KNOW HOW THE UNITED

STATES SHOULD GET INVOLVED.

>> IN TERMS OF ARMING THE

REBELES, ONE OF THE CONCERNS

CERTAINTY THE ADMINISTRATION HAD

IS THAT WEAPONS WILL FALL INTO

THE HANDS OF TERRORISTS, OR

EXTREMISTS WHO ARE THERE NOW.

HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE

CHAIRMAN MIKE ROGERS SAID EVERY

FLAVOR OF TERRORIST IS OPERATING

IN SYRIA RIGHT NOW.

>> Jon: EVERY FLAVOR!

( LAUGHTER )

JUR ROCKY ROADSIDE BOMB, THERE.

YOUR CHUBBY HEZBOLLAH.

( LAUGHTER )

AND, OF COURSE, EVERYONE'S

FAVORITE, VANIL-LA-LA-LA-LA!

( APPLAUSE )

FORTUNATELY--

( LAUGHTER )

THAT'S GOING TO TAKE SOME DAYS

TO COME BACK.

FORTUNATELY, THERE'S ONE MAN OUT

THERE WHO'S GOT AN EASY ANSWER.

>> HOW DO YOU PREVENT WEAPONS

FROM FALLING INTO THEIR HANDS?

>> WELL, BY IDENTIFYING THOSE

PEOPLE WHO ARE ON OUR SIDE.

WE CAN IDENTIFY WHO THESE PEOPLE

ARE.

WE CAN HELP THE RIGHT PEOPLE.

>> Jon: SAVE US,

OBE-GRUMP-KANOBE.

( LAUGHTER )

YOU'RE OUR ONLY HOPE.

BUT CAN HE?

>> OVERSEAS TONIGHT WAY SURPRISE

VISIT TO SYRIA TONIGHT SENATOR

JOHN McCAIN SPENDING THIS

MEMORIAL DAY MEETING WITH THE

REBEL FIGHTERS IN SYRIA, THE

ONES TRYING TO BRING DOWN

PRESIDENT ASSAD.

>> Jon: THAT MEANS IT'S

TIME FOR ANOTHER EPISODE OF--

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Jon: THERE'S NO WAY, NO

WAY THAT McCAIN MAKES IT OUT

OF THERE ALIVE THIS TIME, OR

DOES HE?

>> HE WENT WAY HAND FULL OF

AMERICAN SECURITY, THE REBELS

SECURED YOUR ENTRANCE INTO

SYRIA.

THAT TAKES GUTS!

>> OH, NO, LOOK, ONE THING I'M

SURE OF IS I'M PROBABLY GOING TO

DIE SOME TIME BUT IT'S GOING TO

BE IN BED.

( LAUGHTER )

>> Jon: MAYBE WITH A

SYRINGE OF MALAYSIAN WHITE TIGER

HEROIN.

AND IT'S NOT GOING TO BE ON ONE

OF THOSE IF YOU TONS.

IT WILL BE ON ONE OF THOSE SPACE

BED WHERE YOU CAN PUT A GLAFS

WINE AND JUMP UP AND DOWN.

MEMORY SPHOAM I THINK THEY

CALLED IT.

HE WENT TO SYRIA TO SHOW THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HUFT JHOW

FAST EASY IT IS TO SHOW THE GOOD

GUYS FROM THE BAD GUYS, AND ALL

WORKED ACCORDING TO PLAN EXCEPT.

>> ACCORDING TO A REPORT,

SENATOR McCAIN CAN BE SEEN IN

THAT PICTURE POSING ALONGSIDE

TWO MEN WHO MAY BE BEHIND THE

KIDNAPPING OF 11 LEBANESE SHIITE

MUSLIMS JUST LAST YEAR.

( LAUGHTER )

>> Jon: OH, MY GOD, JOHN

McCAIN IS LITERALLY PALGING

AROUND WITH THEM.

HIS OFFICE HAD A PERFECTLY GOOD

EXPLANATION OF HOW THIS MIGHT

HAVE HAPPENED.

APPARENTLY, NONE OF THE

ALEXANDERS HE PLANNED TO MEET

WITH WAS IDENTIFIED AS MOHAMMED

NOOR OR ABU IBRAHIM.

WHICH IS KIND OF THE POINT.

IT'S A MURKY SITUATION AND NOT

EVERYONE IS GOING TO BE WEARING

THEIR "HELLO, I'M A TERRORIST,"

NAME BADGE.

( LAUGHTER )

OR THEIR "ASK ME ABOUT MY

KIDNAPPING" BUTTON.

>> McCAIN'S OFFICE PUT OUT A

STATEMENT.

I'LL INTERESTED TO YOU, "A

NUMBER OF THE SIR QLOONS GREETED

SENATOR McCAIN UPON HIS

ARRIVAL IN SYRIA ASKED TO TAKE

PICTURES WITH HIM AND AS ALWAYS

THE SENATOR COMPLIED.

IF THE INDIVIDUAL PHOTOGRAPHED

WITH SENATOR McCAIN IS IN FACT

MOHAMMED NOOR, THAT IS

REGRETTABLE."

>> Jon: YES, THAT IS

REEXWRETTABLE REGRETTABLE.

SOMEONE GOT INTO THE PICTURE

EVEN THOUGH SENATOR McCAIN

NEVER INTENDED TO MEET WITH HIM

OH, MY GOSH, SENATOR McCAIN IS

THE VICTIM OF A TERRORIST PHOTO

BOMBING.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
