Excerpted from Buzz Feed: BOCA RATON, Fla. — Sen. John McCain said Monday that if President Barack Obama is to take credit for killing Osama bin Laden in tonight’s debate, he must also bear the responsibility for the turmoil in the Middle East.
Speaking to reporters in the spin room hours before the third and final presidential debate, McCain slammed Obama for conveying a sense of “weakness” to allies and foes across the globe.
“I think that all Americans give the president credit for the elimination of OBL,” McCain said. “And then he should take credit for the abject failure throughout the Middle East. Al Qaeda is resurgent throughout Iraq, Afghanistan, all of North Africa, Libya, Mali. They’re returning because we’re weak.”
