No US credibility in Middle East left following Obama's mishandling of Egypt crisis: McCain

Washington, Aug. 19 : US Senator John McCain has slammed President Barack Obama for his handling of the crisis in Egypt.

McCain said Obama's way of handling the crisis has left the United States with no credibility in the Middle East.

According to the New York Post, McCain the US has no policy and no strategy, and therefore the country reacts poorly.

On CNN's 'State of the Union,' he joined a growing bipartisan chorus calling for an ending to the generous US aid payments after Egypt's military regime ousted democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi last month.

McCain said that the Obama administration's reluctance to take action against Egypt was part of a pattern of botched Middle East policies, including failing to stem the bloody civil war in Syria or curtail Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons, the report added.
