U.S.-Russia deal will allow Assad to "delay and deceive" -McCain, Graham say
WASHINGTON, Sept 14
WASHINGTON, Sept 14 (Reuters) - A deal between the United States and Russia to destroy Syria's chemical weapons will afford Syrian President Bashar-al Assad months to "delay and deceive" while more die in that country's war, two senior Republican senators said on Saturday.
"It requires a willful suspension of disbelief to see this agreement as anything other than the start of a diplomatic blind alley, and the Obama administration is being led into it by Bashar Assad and (Russian President) Vladimir Putin," Senators John McCain of Arizona and Lindsay Graham of South Carolina said in a statement.
