President Barack Obama "allowed" the Bastille Day terror attack in Nice, France, to occur because of his ISIS policies that've failed "America and the world," Sen. John McCain charges.

It was the second blast in a month in which the Arizona Republican tied the president's ISIS strategy to attacks in both the United States and abroad.

The latest slam came during an interview Friday with Arizona radio station KTAR, when McCain called the July 14 "tragedy in France… an act of mayhem and despicable."

His remarks, flagged by BuzzFeed News, start at the 4:16-minute mark.

"I also have to tell you — our prayers are with the families, obviously, and the French people — but I also have to tell you, that as long as we have a leadership in this country — the president of the United States — who allowed this to happen, his policies are directly responsible for ISIS and ISIS is responsible for these attacks," he said.

"We had the war won, thanks to the service of so many brave Americans that sacrificed their blood and treasure, and the president decided to pull everybody out of Iraq," McCain said.

"Al-Qaida went to Syria, became ISIS, and we watched ISIS grow and take over the second largest city in Iraq, and the story we all know. If we want to stop these attacks, we’ve got to go to Raqqa. It’s either we kill them there, or we will kill them here."

In a bruising rebuke, McCain declared the United States had won the war in Iraq, yet "the president decided to pull everybody out of Iraq."

"This president has failed miserably and all this stuff didn’t have to happen," he said. "I’m sorry to say that I predicted everything that has happened, and I predict more attacks just as the director of National Intelligence and the head of the CIA have predicted. This president has failed America and the world."

The blast was the second McCain has aimed at the president in the last several weeks, also lashing out after the deadly terrorist attack at an Orlando, Fla., night club on June 12, when he called the president "directly responsible" for the rampage. 

He later clarified that he was referring to Obama's policies that led to the rise of ISIS.
