      McCain: Obama Could Have Stopped Assad Last Year

      The civil war in Syria could have been stopped last year if President Barack Obama had armed the rebels, Republican Senator John McCain said on Monday.

      “I always believed that we could provide weapons and training, but I also felt it was important to establish a safe zone,” McCain said during an interview on CNN. Had that happened, he added, “I am confident that [the rebels] would have succeeded by now.”
