Sen. John McCain (R-Ari.) said Tuesday that he wasn’t a lock to vote in favor of intervening in Syria because he feared the U.S. military strike wouldn’t go far enough.
“I can’t support something that may be doomed to failure in the long run,” McCain said on “The Today Show.”
McCain, who is among the most vocal members of Congress supporting regime change in Syria, said he won’t be sure if he is a “yes” vote on a potential strike until he reviewed the plans to make sure they were forceful enough.
The statement ramps up rhetoric McCain used a day earlier, after he and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C) met with President Obama at the White House.
