Sen. McCain points out Obama’s red line drawn in disappearing ink

In the midst of the escalating conflict in Syria and the launch of airstrikes by Israel throughout the weekend, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was critical of the Obama administration’s handling of the situation on Fox News Sunday.

“Apparently the Syrians and Iranians have crossed a red line with the Israelis, and that means that weapons that have advanced nature, probably missiles, have been moved from Iran into Syria with intentions of moving them to Hezbollah,” McCain said. “The whole situation is becoming more and more expansive and unfortunately, the red line that the president of the United States had written, was apparently written in disappearing ink.”

McCain referred to former Sec. of State George Schultz who said his Marine Corps drill instructor told him, “You should never point a weapon at someone unless you’re willing to pull the trigger.”

In the view of most, McCain said that the “red line” has been crossed, and that Obama has failed to act.

McCain said a “game-changing” action is needed, with no boots on the ground for the U.S., but establishing a safe zone, protecting it and supplying weapons to the right people.

Chris Wallace also discusses with McCain his thoughts on the recent developments of information on Benghazi, the possible cover-up, and the FBI release of photos of suspects nearly eight months after the attacks.
