Arizona Senator John McCain weighs in on a U.S.-led airstrike that killed 22 people from the humanitarian group “Doctors Without Borders” in Afghanistan. McCain talked about what led to the errant airstrike on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
 
 “Well we call it the fog of war. Unfortunately it’s a tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them.” McCain blamed the airstrike on President Obama’s policies. “If we had had a forward air controller, it very most likely would not have happened. This is also a result of our withdrawal.” McCain also talked about the recent airstrikes in Syria by Russia. “What Vladimir Putin and Bashar Assad want to do is provide with a us choice between ISIS and Bashar Assad. In order to do that you take out the Free Syrian Army.”  Russia says it’s attacking ISIS with the strikes, something Republican front-runner presidential candidate Donald Trump agrees with. “I don’t think he understands very well the situation. He’s entitled to his opinion.” McCain also talked about Trump’s style of attacking other republican candidates. “I think we’re hurting ourselves and our chances of winning the general election if we disparage each other and impugn the character of each other.”
