McCain: U.S. Must Meet June 30 Iraq Transfer Date

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) says U.S. military commanders should have requested more troops for Iraq two months ago, "when conditions were far more ripe for democratization." But McCain says the U.S. should adhere to a June 30 deadline to transfer power to Iraqis, arguing a delay would worsen the security situation. McCain speaks with NPR's Juan Williams.
