Conficts End When The Enemy Is Defeated: Senator McCain Calls For Obama To Fire National Security Team

Evan McMurry at offers a piece on Senator John McCain:

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) took to the floor of his chamber Thursday morning and called upon President Barack Obama to replace his entire national security staff in the wake of Islamic militant victories in several large Iraqi cities.

“I say to the President of the United States, get a new national security team in place,” McCain said. “You have been ill-served by the national security team you have in place now, and the decisions you have made. Have that new national security team come up with a strategy to do whatever we can to prevent this direct threat to the national security of this nation.”

McCain blamed the deterioration of the Iraq situation on Obama’s “withdrawal without victory,” and warned the same thing could now occur in Afghanistan without a change of policy.

“Because the President of the United States declares a conflict over does mean that in the eyes of the enemy it is over,” McCain said. “Conflicts end when the enemy is defeated.”
