John McCain (R-AZ) said neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump have the right military strategy to defeat the growing threat of Islamic terrorism. Partial transcript as follows: DICKERSON: Senator McCain, Senator Graham just mentioned the next president. We’ve talked about some pretty complex issues here which will face that next president.
