McCain: ISIS' Rise Like 'Watching a Train Wreck'

Sen. John McCain slammed President Barack Obama on Monday over his comments that U.S. intelligence underestimated ISIS.

McCain countered Obama's assertions made on CBS' "60 Minutes," saying that ISIS' expansion in Syria and Iraq was tied to the President's decision not to leave a residual U.S. military force in Iraq and his refusal to arm moderate Syrian rebels last year despite urgings from his national security advisers.

"We predicted this and watched it," McCain said on CNN's "New Day." "It was like watching a train wreck and warning every step of the way that this was happening."

Police Officer's Act of Kindness Goes Viral

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff,"  a police officer goes above and beyond for a pair of young boys. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Officer Joseph Bolland from Virginia was on patrol in a neighborhood when he spotted a pair of kids who looked like they could use a buddy.

The boys were using a balled up sock to play catch.

Officer Bolland wasn't having it, so with his own money he bought them a proper ball, action figures, and even a costume police hat.

He said the kids' reaction means everything to him.

“Just to see their eyes light up was incredible. It was probably my greatest moment as a police officer.”

Is The White House Safe?

Should President Obama trust the Secret Service to keep him safe?

This question arises again after a Washington Post report says supervisors mishandled a 2011 shooting incident at the White House.

Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig told "New Day" Monday it took the Secret Service four days to discover there had been a shooting.

The Secret Service has responded to these claims, but another investigative reporter, Ronald Kessler, asserts the group needs a change in management.

And he says President Obama and his family are not safe at the White House.

Kessler emphasizes the danger saying "the agents I talked to say it’s a miracle that there has not been an assassination so far."
