GOP Sen. John McCain had some harsh words for President Barack Obama’s strikes against the Islamic State (IS) in an interview with The Daily Beast.
On August 8, the U.S. dropped two 500-pound smart bombs onto IS envoys that were approaching Erbil, Iraq, the capital city of Kurdistan where many U.S. diplomatic and military personnel are located.
McCain felt that these strikes were not enough.
“This is a pinprick,” McCain told The Daily Beast. “It’s almost worse than nothing because I fear the president is threatening and then he won’t follow through.”
“It’s the weakest possible response and we cannot allow them to take Erbil. What [the administration has] done so far is almost meaningless.”
