Sen. John McCainblasted the Obama administration in a Wednesday floor speech for inaction on the Syrian refugee crisis, delivering it with a chart featuring the tragic photo of 3-year-old Aylan Kurdi. “This photo, which was taken shortly after Aylan’s dead body was washed ashore, has opened the world’s eyes to this devastating crisis,” the Arizona Republican said. “This image has haunted the world. But what should haunt us even more than the horror unfolding before our eyes is the thought that the United States will continue to do nothing meaningful about it.”
