In Benghazi, McCain attracted a crowd so enthusiastic that at one point he joked,

“I’ve got to bring you to Arizona.”

He called on President Obama to recognize the rebel government, provide more air support like AC130 anti-tank and A10 ground support aircraft, get anti-tank weapons into rebel hands, train rebels on target marking technology and give the them satellite phones to aid communication.
