John McCain, from war hawk to peacenik?

This 2007 video from the USA on political flip-flops is called John McCain vs. John McCain.

United States ex-Republican party presidential candidate John McCain has done quite some political flip-flops in his life.

Like his flip-flop from crony of Gadaffi to 2011 Libyan war hawk and crony of the anti-Gadaffi Benghazi kind of people who recently murdered the United States ambassador to Libya.

However, the latest news seems to be about a McCain flip-flop which, if true, would be a lot more welcome than the ones about Libya.
