McCain on Ukraine: I’m ‘Ashamed’ of my Country, My President, Myself

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,”  Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said, “I’m ashamed of my country, I’m ashamed of my president and ashamed of myself, ” over Ukraine response

McCain said, “I believe that the German chancellor and president of France legitimized for the first time in 70 years the dismemberment of a country in Europe. It’s shameful. Vladimir Putin has not paid any price even the cease fire was violated until he achieved his objective of that vital rail link. He’ll pull back some now, next so that he can establish land bridge to Crimea. Honestly, it’s terrible. Ukrainians aren’t asking for American boots on the ground, that’s not the question here. They’re asking for weapons to defend themselves, they’re being slaughtered and military is being shattered this is a shameful chapter. I’m ashamed of my country, I’m ashamed of my president and ashamed of myself that i haven’t done more to help these people. It is really, really heartbreaking.”
