Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain had harsh words for President Obama on foreign policy on Sunday, calling the president's refusal to engage in the Syrian conflict "disgraceful and shameful."
"It is a violation of the United States national security policy made by the president of the United States that we would prevent massacres wherever they take place," he said on Fox News Sunday. "People are being massacred as we speak."
This past week, McCain called for the use of U.S. air power in Syria. Obama responded in a press conference last week, arguing that Syria is a more complicated situation than Libya, where the U.S. intervened to help topple Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi.
McCain also slammed the president on his position on Iran, which McCain says does not guard well enough against the possibility of the country obtaining nuclear weapons capabilities. He said that the U.S. request for Israel not to use military force against Iran has hurt relations.
"Relations between the United States and Israel have never been worse," he said.
