McCain calls Russia's Syria plan a stall tactic

Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) called a Russian plan for Syria to hand over its chemical weapons a stalling tactic, in comments Wednesday at a Wall Street Journal event the morning after President Barack Obama addressed the nation over possible diplomatic progress and the need for a credible U.S. military threat.

Mr. McCain expressed severe skepticism about the possibility of compromise—whose origins he called "queasy"—that arose this week and urged the White House to give the diplomatic track limited time to play itself out. "I'm worried that we have a game of rope-a-dope for a while, and the slaughter goes on," Mr. McCain said.

Mr. McCain made the comments at a Seib & Wessel breakfast hosted by the Wall Street Journal.
