McCain: ISIS Success Direct Result of US Failure

McCain: ISIS Success Direct Result of US Failure

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) slammed President Barack Obama’s foreign policy for the rise of ISIS in Iraq. 

“This is not like a hurricane or earthquake” he said. “This didn’t have to happen. This is a failure of the United States policy. By the way there still none that I can discern, either policy or strategy to handle this situation.”

The Arizona republican said of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, “This guy when he left the prison camp that we were in he said, see you in New York. We now have a largest and richest enclave of radical terrorism in history.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) added an ominous warning about Afghanistan in light of Iraq’s collapse. 

“Fourteen years after 9/11 there are more terrorist groups with more weapons and more capabilities than before 9/11 and we’re having less capability, less presence,” Graham said. If we get down to a thousand troops by 2017 dismantle our eyes and ears in Afghanistan and Pakistan it will haunt us far worse than Iraq.”
