Senator McCain gives interview on Afghan strategy

The former US Presidential candidate, Senator John McCain has spoken to BBC Newsnight about the coalition strategy in Afghanistan after the deaths of three British soldiers.

A renegade Afghan soldier opened fire on the men, killing three and injuring four.

Speaking to Kirsty Wark, Senator McCain, the Republican head of the Senate Armed Services Committee, stressed the need for the coalition to remain in Afghanistan without "telling the enemy" a date for the coalition withdrawal.
