John McCainJohn McCainExperts warn weapons gap is shrinking between US, Russia and China McCain delivers his own foreign policy speech Republicans who vow to never back Trump MORE (R-Ariz.) said Sunday that the U.S. won't send every prisoner of war home, even with the war in Afghanistan coming to a close.
“We’re not sending everybody home … even if we close Guantánamo. We’re going to send them to facilities in the United States of America. That's been the plan all along,” McCain said on "State of the Union."
McCain also said on CNN that the U.S. could've swapped other prisoners, rather than the five they released, who he believes are too dangerous and pose to great a threat to Americans still serving in Afghanistan.
