Sen. John McCain on Sunday criticized the Obama administration's deal with Russia to rid Syria of chemical weapons saying it would enable the former Communist regime to launch an internal attack on Damascus.

"If it works, we are going to see the Russians facilitating the departure of chemical weapons while planeload after planeload of Russian aircraft coming into Damascus are full of weapons and devices to kill Syrians, of which there are over 100,000," the Arizona Republican told NBC's "Meet the Press."

"Whatever happened to the president’s red line, where he said if they use chemical weapons, we will respond?" McCain asked.

McCain has been critical of the plan negotiated by Secretary of State John Kerry, and on Sunday called it a "loser" that puts Russia in a position of strength throughout the region.
