McCain says vote against Syria strike would be catastrophic

Senator John McCain said Monday that Congress's failure to authorize military action in Syria would be "catastrophic" because it would undermine US credibility.

"It would undermine the credibility of the United States of America and the president of the United States. None of us want that," he said after meeting with President Barack Obama.
