US Senator John McCain (R-AZ) criticized US President Barack Obama on Sunday for taking a "backseat role" in Libya and "withdrawing" from NATO.
Speaking on CBS' "Face the Nation," McCain said in response to the airstirke that killed one of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's sons said that military action was "obviously an attempt to remove Gadhafi's command and control."
He even hinted that attempts to assassinate Gaddafi were justified. "We should be taking out his command and control. And if he is killed or injured because of that, that's fine," McCain said.
McCain went on to criticize the Obama administration and said the president has "withdrawn from NATO" and the United States has taken a "backseat role."
