McCarthy slams Harry Reid, says US should have all options ‘on the table’ with Iraq

Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the new House majority leader, said Sunday the United States’ strategy for intervening in the Iraq crisis should be “everything is on the table,” including sending troops to stop the widespread sectarian violence threatening to take over that country.

McCarthy, R-Calif., told “Fox News Sunday” that nobody in Washington says sending troops is the solution right now. But the U.S. should keep open that option, and the larger problem is that the Obama administration lacks a clear plan, he said.
