Latest Updates - US Attacks Syria
John McCain who is visiting North Korea has blamed Obama for the alleged chemical attack in Syria. He said the White House hadn't reacted in an appropriate manner to the past reports of the check. McCain said Assad was able to use these weapons in the past and did so again since there had been no response.
"They viewed that not as a red line, but as a green light, and they acted accordingly," McCain said.
McCain also blamed Chairman Martin Dempsey and criticized his warning of the dangers of military engagement in Syria. McCain said his "illogical statement" of not getting involved must have been heard by Assad, who then decided to use the chemical weapons.
Bill Clinton, too shares McCain's sentiments.
