McCain Rips Dempsey: ‘Most Disappointing of the Joint Chiefs’

Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) blasted the current Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin E. Dempsey for doing “great damage” to the Middle East and the world.

McCain said, “General Dempsey is the most disappointing of the joint chiefs I have seen and I have seen many. He says he may request that [ground troops]. He has supported the plan to completely withdraw from Afghanistan. He’s basically been the echo chamber for the president. One of the reasons why we are in the situation that we are in in the world today and particularly in the Middle East is because of his lack of either knowledge or candor about the situation in the Middle East and he’s done great damage. So all i can say is he only has 8 more months.”
