McCain: "Gen. Dempsey Most Disappointing Chairman Of The Joint Chiefs That I Have Ever Seen"

John McCain on Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey saying he "may" ask President Obama for troops on the ground to fight ISIS.

McCAIN: General Dempsey is the most disappointing chairman of the joint chiefs that I have seen, and I have seen many of them...

He says he may request that. He has supported the plan to completely withdraw from Afghanistan. And he has basically been the echo chamber for the president. And one of the reasons we are in the situation that we're in in the world today - and particularly in the Middle East - is because the lack of his either knowledge or candor about the situation in the Middle East. And it has done great damage, and so all I can say is he only has eight more months.
