Rolling Stone article alleges Senators John McCain, Al Franken and Joe Lieberman were all targeted
American soldiers were illegally ordered to apply psychological pressure to U.S. senators as they toured Afghanistan in a bid to secure more troops and money for the military, according to an officer serving in a unit specialising in 'psy-ops'.

The U.S. Army officer is said to have received an official reprimand after his unit resisted orders, from the command of Lieutenant General William Caldwell, which they said were illegal.

Those said to have been targeted for the operation were former presidential candidate Senator John McCain and VIPs including European diplomats and government ministers."
