Senator John McCain caught playing poker during Syria hearings

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON - Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) had a slightly embarrassing moment today during hearings on Syria.  As the hearing continued, McCain seemed more into his cards than the testimony.  Washington Post photographer Melina Mara snapped a shot of McCain playing electronic poker.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is hearing testimony about whether or not we should attack Syria for using chemical weapons on its own people.  The hearing's being watched closely by leaders in all countries while President Obama seeks congressional approval to strike.  

After the hearing Sen. McCain jokingly tweeted:  "Scandal.  Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour senate meeting  Worst of all, I lost."
