Senator McCain blasts Obama over Syria. “I thought Jimmy Carter was bad, but he pales in comparison to this president.”
“It has turned into a tragedy of mammoth proportions, and if you don’t care about Syria, it’s becoming a regional conflict. It’s spread to Lebanon, it’s spread to Turkey, it’s spread to Jordan. It is spreading throughout the region and sooner or later, it will affect the United States of America,” he said. McCain said Obama’s inaction in Syria and lack of support for moderate rebels could lead to an Al-Qaeda takeover of the country. “We now have thousands of fighters of this — radical, extremist, Al-Qaeda affiliated people pouring in from all over the world into Syria, fighting against our guys, who are the good guys and also not doing much fighting against Bashar Assad,” he said, according to the Free Beacon.
