(Undated) -- U.S. Senator John McCain says the conflict in Iraq is a national security threat to the United States. Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union," the Arizona Republican called the uprising of the terrorist group ISIS an Iraqi problem, but also an American problem. He also criticized President Obama's strategy to deal with the situation, saying he would launch airstrikes into Syria to attack ISIS and assist the Free Syrian Army. The president has ordered airstrikes in Iraq to combat the ISIS rebels.
