In a tense and often heated debate with Pentagon
leaders, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)
went to bat for pilots frustrated at the lack ordinance being dropped in the
air campaign against ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
An F-16 based at Shaw AFB, S.C., collided with a Cessna C150 around 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, approximately 11 miles north of Charleston, Air Combat Command spokesman Capt. A.J. Schrag told Air Force Magazine.
The President’s strategy to defeat ISIS
demonstrates “a disturbing degree of self-delusion,” said Senate Armed Services
Committee Chairman Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday.
