Tonight on AC360: McCain: 'Leaks came from the White House'

Senator John McCain calls leaks of highly classified counterterrorism operations "one of the most egregious breaches of national security  in recent memory." In a statement he blasts President Obama for risking the nation's security to benefit his campaign.

"These leaks clearly were not done in the interest of national security or to reveal corrupt or illegal actions about which the public has a right to know, as in the case of legitimate whistle-blowers," McCain said. "It is difficult to escape the conclusion that these recent leaks of highly classified information, all of which have the effect of making the president look strong and decisive on national security in the middle of his re-election campaign, have a deeper political motivation."

Watch a preview of Anderson's interview with the Senator and see the full conversation at 8 and 10 p.m. ET. They discuss how to control the leaks, who's to blame, and also the mounting death toll in Syria.

McCain: No hope for U.N. mission in Syria

Sen. John McCain talks to Anderson Cooper about the U.N. mission in Syria that he views as useless. "It gives the people who might be helping more pause while assurances are given by the U.N. that we ought to give this a chance," said McCain. "It would be fine to give it a chance if they weren't still killing people."

He criticizes President Obama for "doing nothing" to end the violence. McCain says the administration's rhetoric and economic sanctions are empty threats "against a person who, as we know, is slaughtering its citizens and the latest of course being killing people who talk to the U.N monitors."

McCain: Syria attacks are atrocious

Sen. McCain says the Syrian government is "atrocious" for attacking civilians after U.N. monitors leave the area. Anderson Cooper asked him about the deadly cat and mouse game playing out between al-Assad's regime and the U.N. "If it wasn't so serious it would be a bad joke," said McCain.
