Sen. McCain Wants to See President Obama Use Airstrikes in Syria

Senator John McCain isn't yet convinced President Obama's strategy to combat ISIS will bring about a 'favorable result.'

"I'm not yet convinced that it isn't gonna be just half-measures and isn't just reacting to polling  numbers," McCain told CNN's Kate Bolduan on "New Day" Thursday.

When pressed on what Obama could do to convince the lawmaker, McCain said the President could begin using airstrikes in Syria 'tomorrow.'

McCain said: "If he is worried about targets, I can give him targets in Syria."

    I left a comment a couple of days ago asking you to broadcast New Day on CNN INTERNATIONAL. I don't mean to annoy you with repetitive comments, but I urge you to broadcast Early Start and New Day on CNNi.
