Keeping Them Honest: Is President Obama passing the buck on ISIS?

During his interview with '60 Minutes,' President Obama admitted that ISIS' strength had been underestimated. He then called out Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. So what did President Obama know about ISIS? Anderson discussed this with National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto, Daily Beast Senior National Security Correspondent Eli Lake and former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, who’s now a CNN Senior Political Commentator.

Carney vs. McCain 

President Obama's speech on ISIS set off some pretty intense fireworks on AC360. Senator John McCain lit into CNN's new Senior Political Commentator Jay Carney over the president's policies in Iraq and Syria. This confrontation nearly didn't happen. The two were not scheduled to be on the show at the same time, but Senator McCain took aim at Carney who was still sitting on set and that triggered the heated confrontation. Anderson looked at both of their arguments with Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger and political commentator Peter Beinart.

Sen. John McCain and Jay Carney face-off after President Obama's speech

Anderson asked Sen. McCain about President Obama's strategy to destroy ISIS, and he wasted little time taking aim at Jay Carney. The former White House Press Secretary is now CNN's Senior Political Commentator. Sen. McCain challenged Carney about the administration's decisions on arming Syrian rebels and removing troops in Iraq. He even called out Carney personally saying:

'You, in your role as a spokesperson,  bragged about the fact that the last American combat troop had left Iraq. If we had left a residual force the situation would not be what it is today.'
