McCain told radio show host Hugh Hewitt that there is probably more to the negotiations than is currently known.
“I think you’re going to find out that they had never agreed to the things that John Kerry claimed that they had,” McCain said. “So in a way, I can’t blame the Ayatollah, because I don’t think they ever agreed to it, and I think John Kerry tried to come back and sell a bill of goods, hoping maybe that the Iranians wouldn’t say much about it.”
McCain considers the current state of negotiations “shameful.”
“I knew that things were going to be bad when I lost in 2008, OK?” he told Hewitt. “But if you take a look at the map of the world in January of 2009 and look at the world today, my friend, you and I even haven’t had a chance to talk about the shameful, disgraceful actions of us not giving the Ukrainians weapons to defend themselves. That’s a shameful chapter.”
