JOHN MCCAIN: " Well, in my view, it was crossed. Not only have our intelligence people concluded that, but as importantly the Israeli, the British and the French have as well. And obviously, we know that Bashar al-Assad will do whatever is necessary in order to stay in power; massacres of his own people, all of the actions that he’s taken that are so horrific. So I worry that the president and the administration will use these caveats as an excuse not to act right away or act at all, because the president clearly stated that it was a red line and that it couldn’t be crossed without the United States taking vigorous action. That action should be a safe zone for the Syrian opposition to operate in Syria, weapons to the right people in Syria and neutralizing the air capability of Bashar al-Assad."
