Default Sen. McCain plans to stall Dempsey's nomination

As I looked at the forum title I wondered WHAT F_ing CONGRESS???


Sen. McCain plans to stall Dempsey's nomination - Houston Chronicle


Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. John McCain said Thursday he will block Army Gen. Martin Dempsey's nomination for a second term as Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman due to his dissatisfaction with the officer's responses to questions about the potential use of U.S. military power in Syria.

McCain, R-Ariz., pressed Dempsey during his confirmation hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee to provide his opinion on which approach in Syria carries greater risk for U.S. national security interests: continued limited action on the part of Washington, or more significant steps such as establishment of a no-fly zone and arming rebel forces with the weapons they need to stem the advance of President Bashar Assad's forces.

Dempsey said he has provided President Barack Obama with options for the use of military force, but he declined to detail those choices. "It would be inappropriate for me to try to influence the decision with me rendering an opinion in public about what kind of force we should use," Dempsey said.
Lost some respect for McCain, I have.
