John McCain Blames ISIS on Obama
Senator John McCain, appearing on Face the Nation, said the current situation in Iraq is the fault of President Obama.
“We did have this situation stabilized,” McCain said. “We could have left a residual force behind, which would have stabilized the situation.”
Bob Scheiffer asked McCain about Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s refusal to sign a status of forces agreement with the U.S. Without that agreement, Scheiffer said, it would be impossible to leave a residual force behind.
“They were ready to sign,” McCain argued. McCain predicted Obama “is going to make the same mistake in Afghanistan.”
McCain, who never met a war he doesn’t like, including civil wars, argued Obama should authorize more assistance to the Syrian rebels fighting to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad.
