McCain: Libya is 'only days or weeks away' from having a secure nation

Arizona Senator John McCain returned from a trip to Libya last week where he met with members of the country's interim governing council and military commanders. On American Morning this morning, Senator McCain says the Libyans should be within weeks or even days of having their 'entire nation secure,' though he admits he is concerned that they do not have a national army. He says we should be helping their wounded becuase "they simply dont have the capabilities to care for these people."

In the interview, the senator also reacts to Dick Cheney's comment over the weekend regarding President Obama's order to kill Anwar Al-Awlaki. McCain says he congratulates the President and his team.
