Meghan McCain Agrees With Father: Send US Troops to Fight ISIS

By    |   Tuesday, 14 Oct 2014 09:36 PM

Sen. John McCain's daughter Meghan McCain is known for disagreeing with him on social issues, but she has found common ground with him on fighting the Islamic State (ISIS.)

"This may surprise you, but I completely agree with my father," Meghan McCain said Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor."

"Everything he and Sen. [Lindsey] Graham said would happen in the Middle East when we left Iraq has happened, and I'm absolutely petrified about what's going on in the Middle East right now."

The elder McCain, who was a prisoner of war in Vietnam, has said the current airstrikes are not enough to beat ISIS, which now holds large swaths of Syria and Iraq. He has called on President Barack Obama to sent U.S. troops to help in the fight.

Though polls show those under 40 are against U.S. ground troops returning to Iraq, the Meghan McCain, 29, told O'Reilly she sees the tide turning.

"I think when the American people see what's going on right now and how brutal ISIS is and that they continue to grow, there's no other option," she said. "It's not like I want America to go to war, but I think we must deal with this."

She also predicted the crisis would help Republicans in the Nov. 4 midterm elections
