Lindsey Graham, the U.S. Senator for South Carolina on Tuesday slammed outgoing U.S. President Barack Obama over his foreign policy on Syria.
Pointing to the atrocities carried out by the Assad regime in Syria's city of Aleppo, the Republican lawmaker said the Obama administration failed in its Syria policy.
" The slaughter in #Aleppo is heart-breaking. President Obama's Syria policy has been a complete disaster," he said in a tweet.

"Assad's "victory" in Aleppo is a nightmare for America," he concluded.
Over 100 civilians were executed by Assad regime forces alongside Russian jets carrying out air strikes on Monday after Syrian state TV claimed the regime forces and their allies gained control of 99 percent of eastern Aleppo.
Only 1 percent of the original pocket remains in opposition hands, most of which has been badly damaged, with many homes and entire blocks destroyed.
