There have been many touching tributes to Senator John McCain this week as his family, his state and his country, prepare for final goodbyes.  Many of The Cipher Brief’s experts interacted directly with the late Senator in exchanges that were fiery, passionate, and often challenging.  Whether you were on his side or not, it is notable that even those who disagreed with him on serious issues continued to have a healthy respect for him.  We thought that the best Cipher Brief tribute to his service and his life, would be to bring you some of those direct thoughts from those who knew and worked with him.  All agreed that the late Senator will always be remembered as a great American hero.  That’s who John McCain was, and that is the legacy he leaves behind.
