McCain to Rebut Putin in Pravda? A Duel of Words

Sen. John McCain will write an op-ed in the Russian newspaper Pravda, responding to Russian President Vladimir Putin's op-ed in The New York Times that warned President Barack Obama and the American public against attacking Syria.

McCain, a Republican from Arizona, joked in an interview on CNN on Thursday night that he would "love to have a commentary in Pravda." The day later, the editors of Pravda agreed to publish an op-ed by him, allowing him to attack the leadership of Putin.
