John McCain: Trump Admin Partially To Blame For Syria Using Chem Weapons On It’s People

Sen. John McCain partially blamed the Trump administration for recent chemical attacks on the Syrian people allegedly delivered by Al Assad.

Sometimes when McCain does interviews, I think he gets so caught up in the moment he forgets what side he’s on. His nickname has been the “maverick, ” but it seems that he’s leaned more left than any other Republican in recent history and that includes former Senator Joe Lieberman.

This might get overshadowed today with Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation, ut someone needs to address this because we need all hands on deck to fight the liberal media and Democrats and most of us are getting sick of McCain torpedoing our side every time he gets a chance.

Republican Sen. John McCain said Sunday the Trump administration is at least partly to blame for Syria using chemical weapons against its own people.

“I think it probably was partially to blame. And Secretary [Rex] Tillerson basically saying the same thing after kind of contradicting himself and then saying the same thing argues vigorously for a plan and a strategy,” the Arizona senator said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “As I said, again, taking this action I support and was important.”

Tillerson had said in late March that the Syrian people would determine Assad’s fate.

McCain said the Trump administration needs to have a more concrete strategy in dealing with Syria and shouldn’t treat Thursday’s U.S. missile strikes as a “one-time deal.” He emphasized that just going after chemical weapons ignores how large a problem Syria has become.

The U.S. launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at the Shayrat air base near Homs in retaliation for the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad reportedly using chemical weapons against his own people in the town of Khan Sheikhoun. The chemical attack claimed at least 80 lives.

McCain said the U.S must also be concerned about other reported war crimes by the Assad regime, such as using barrel bombs and starving thousands of prisoners.
